This is one of the many “treasures” I uncovered while cleaning out the massive mess that was the backroom of my house a couple of months back. I wasn’t aware of their being Donkey Kong knock-off coloring books but I guess it was a problem if this particular coloring book needed to have an authorized notice upon the cover.
The info on the inside says it was released in 1982 by Modern Promotions/Publishers which was a division of Unisystems, Inc. based in New York, New York. The story reveals what actually is going on while we play Donkey Kong…SPOILERS…it involves a shrink ray!
So now you know! When playing Donkey Kong you are actually in control of real people!
