    SG-1000 Congo Bongo (SG-1000)

    Congo Bongo is one of Sega's underrated arcade titles, and it's more than a mere Donkey Kong clone. Unfortunately, its charm and engaging gameplay didn't make it into the SG-1000 conversion. What's left is barely reminiscent of the coin-op, and it fails to offer any incentive for play over superior ports on other hardware of the era. Read our full review for more details.

    I've played this in the past and it is indeed pretty poor. Why Sega had to change the aspect ratio is beyond me since it worked on the Colecovision and this system is very similar tech wise. This game is just no fun to play and makes the SG-1000 look bad.

    The new perspective does it all. The arcade original seems more similar to Frogger, while this port is indeed a ripoff of Donkey Kong.
