King Kong is a Tigervision video game programmed by Karl T. Olinger that was released on the Atari 2600 in 1982.


King Kong is a clone of the 1981 Nintendo arcade game Donkey Kong. Each level requires the player to rescue a woman on top of the Empire State Building while jumping over bombs thrown by King Kong. A special type of bomb resembling a candle will cause the player to automatically move up a floor when they jump over it.
