Donkey Kong Jr. Math was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1983(1985 and 1986 in North America and Japan). It is the second game to feature Donkey Kong Junior. Donkey Kong(now Cranky Kong) holds up a sign and Donkey Kong Junior will have to find the numbers and math sign to get to the number. Once finished, the player who gets the answer first will receive a point.
It would later be remade and released as Donkey Kong Jr.+ Jr. Math Lesson that includes Donkey Kong Jr. Math and Donkey Kong Jr.. It would also appear in Animal Crossing as a NES item. It would be released on the Wii Virtual Console in 2007 for 500 Wii Points.
Donkey Kong Jr. Math features both a one player and second player mode. The first modes objective is to enter math answers to receive points. These questions will include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Second player mode allows two players to control two characters and race to create math formulas to reach the number shown by Donkey Kong, while including platform gameplay. Game mechanics are similar to Donkey Kong Jr. as players will climb vines to get to high places in order to collect numbers scattered in the area. To complete the math problems, they will need to collect three things: the first number, the symbol needed to reach the number, and the second number. When the game starts to require higher numbers, they will have to collect multiple numbers and math systems to reach it.
