## Donkey Kong Jr. Math

Typed out by cpepin1@grfn.org --------------------------------------------------------------------- Donkey Kong Jr. Math NES Manual by NINTENDO --------------------------------------------------------------------- (NOTE: I used the * symbol instead of the multiplication symbol.) Thank you for selecting the Nintendo(R) Entertainment System Donkey Kong Jr. MATH Pak. OBJECT OF THE GAME/GAME DESCRIPTION Learning can be fun, especially when you play along with Donkey Kong Jr. Practice Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division by directing Junior to select your answer. Compete with a friend in a race to solve problems in Game A or add more challenge with Game B. Or, practice on your own with the + - x / selection. Recommended ages 8 and up. Please read the instruction booklet to ensure proper handling of your new game, and then save the booklet for future reference. 1. PRECAUTIONS 1) This is a high precision game.

HOW TO PLAY Junior's father gives Junior some math problems. Use your brains to help Junior find the correct answer as fast as possible. Compete with a friend and go for a high score. * CALCULATE A and B can be played with one or two players. * When two players play, you can annoy your opponent by grabbing numbers and symbols that he wants before he can. CHARACTERS Junior (I) Junior (II) Nitpicker Papa (Donkey Kong) CALCULATE A (FOR TWO PLAYERS, USE CONTROLLERS I and II.) Papa holds up a number. Junior has to try to make the same number appear in his side window by using the numbers 1 ~ 9 and the symbols + - x /. After you write an equation, the math is automatically done and the answer appears in the window. If this number isn't the same as the number Papa is holding up, you can use it as the beginning of your next try, and gradually zero in on the right answer. ------------------------------------------------------------------- *Junior can only put single-digit numbers (1 ~ 9) into the window. Even if you try to grab two numbers in a row, only the first one goes into the window. *For answers containing five digits or more, only the displayed four digits count. * The remainder is dropped for division. *The word "WIN" underneath the window doesn't mean that the answer in the window is right. When you get the answer right, an apple will appear beside "WIN". 1. Papa shows a number on a placard. You must make an equation whose answer equals the number on the placard. 2. Move Junior and make him jump onto the chains to get the necessary numbers. Numbers appear on the chains in random order. 3. Send Junior to the islands to get the signs (+ - x /). When Junior jumps onto an island, the sign that was there goes up into the window and onto another island so that it can be used again. 4. The numbers and signs line up in the order they are taken to make the equation. Junior can get one-digit numbers only. Even if two numbers are taken in a row, only the first one is used. ------------------------------------------------------------------- 5. Use the answers from your first try as the beginning of your next try, and continue with a sign and number; or start over by clearing the window with the B button. 6. if an answer has five digits or more, only the first four are displayed. Only displayed digits count. The calculation is finished when the answer in the window is the same as the placard number Papa is holding up. 7. Papa gives out an apple each time the correct answer is found. The winner is the one who gets five apples first. When someone wins, Junior jumps up and down. CALCULATE B (FOR TWO PLAYERS, USE CONTROLLERS I and II.) The game proceeds just like Calculate A, but a number is given in your window at the beginning and Papa may assign a negative number on the placard. Those are the only extra difficulties. Go ahead and test your mathematical ability. *When the B button is pressed to start over, the number given in the beginning will reappear. ------------------------------------------------------------------- + - X / EXERCISE (FOR ONE PLAYER ONLY, USE CONTROLLER I.) Practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The screen on the left will appear. Choose the kind of problems you wish to do. 1. Move Junior to the problem type you wish to practice. 2. Move Junior to the right. He will point out the problem next to him. 3. The screen will then change, and the problem will begin. An unfinished problem appears in the upper right part of the screen. Place the correct numbers in the squares ( ) to finish the problem. *One game consists of ten problems. ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. The nitpicker shows you the position of the number to be filled. Make Junior jump onto the chain under the nitpicker. 2. As Junior Climbs up and down the chain, the numbers 0 -- 9 appear in the square. Stop Junior at the desired number. 3. By moving Junior to a chain on the left or right, the chosen number is set. A number is not set until it stops flashing. The game will go faster by always moving to the chain where the nitpicker is. Press the B button if you discover a mistake in your calculation. All the numbers that were set are cleared, and you can start over on the same problem. 4. After all the numbers are set, move Junior to the right or left for a final set. If the solution is correct, Junior jumps off the chains and jumps up and down. The nitpicker gives you an egg as a present, indicated on the left side of the screen next to the problem number. ------------------------------------------------------------------- 5. If the answer is wrong, Junior will fall on his bottom from the chains. Go back to the place of the mistake once more (the nitpicker and the square will show you where the mistake is). One by one, fix the mistaken numbers. 6. If the problem is too hard, push the question mark (?) up to Papa. The numbers will fill in automatically, displaying the correct solution. 7. When there are several marks on top of each other, the square mark ( ) will flash in the column where the nitpicker is, showing you where to place the number. After putting the number in place, set it by moving Junior to the left or right. Then, move him back to the chain where the nitpicker is to continue. 8. One game has 10 problems. The score is displayed on Papa's placard. One problem is 100 points, so a perfect score is 1,000 points. Points are deducted for errors and taking too much time. It is easy to tell how many correct answers were found by counting the eggs next to the problem numbers. ------------------------------------------------------------------- NINTENDO Nintendo of America Inc.
