What if someone could develop a good version of the original Donkey Kong arcade game from Nintendo? Alternatively a version of Crazy Kong made by Falcon, a european arcade game developer? I guess you will have to use another name.

The original licensed version made by Ocean sucks so hard even a black hole will be sucked into it. Can't believe Nintendo allowed this version to hit the stores.

I know there exists other versions for MSX called Congo and Apeman but haven't had the opportunity to test them yet.

The Apeman Strikes Again (and Kong) is a pretty good version of Donkey Kong for MSX, IMHO.

This could be a good challenge for the MSXDev' contest Tongue
Then again, I thing plagiarism might be an issue ... (sigh)

Changing the name has no influence on copyright issues, to help that fairy tale out of the world. But maybe you weren't aiming at that.

I'm not asking anyone to break any copyright laws, just try to make a decent Donkey Kong clone. If the makers of Congo and The Apeman Strikes again could why not other developers? It doesn't have be a 100% copy, just 100% playable.
