* ArcadePerfectPort: As of version 0.193, UsefulNotes/{{MAME}} still has an issue with emulating the sound, which causes certain sound effect and music not to play at all. If you want to play it at intact form, you'll have to snag official Sega compliations like ''Sega Genesis Collection'', ''Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection'' or ''Sega Memorial Selection''.

In Creator/{{Sega}}'s ''Congo Bongo'' (known as ''Tip Top'' in Japan), you're a safari adventurer who, one day, got you and your tent burnt in fire, no thanks to the mischief of the ape Congo. Seeking for revenge, your goal is to catch this ape and return the favor.

''Congo Bongo'' is a 1983 [[ActionGame action]] [[PlatformGame platformer]] released for [[UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame arcades]], and is very obviously inspired by Nintendo's hit ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', down to having four levels in total. The biggest difference from it is that the stages in ''Congo Bongo'' is projected under [[IsometricProjection isometric perspective]], taking the idea from Sega's own ''VideoGame/{{Zaxxon}}''.
