- Never Live It Down: This game will never escape its poor reputation. ST. Game readers named the game the worst Atari program of 1983, even worse than the notorious E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.
- Porting Disaster: Many of the ports to consoles and home computers were atrocious. The Atari 2600 version is notable for being bad; it had only two out of the four levels. Plus the 2600 could NOT handle isometric projection.
- They Copied It, So It Sucks!: Many were not happy about the similarities to Donkey Kong.
YMMV / Congo Bongo
