Just watched this comparison video that organizes it in "order of greatness."  What do you think?

I'm glad i've read this thread. I'm a big fan of DK and interesting to see the various Youtube videos. What muddies the ground are the later remakes versus the originals - people often get misled what garbage some of the early versions were.

As original's conversions go I still think the Colecovision and the NES ones are my favorite. The Atari remake for the 2600 is stunning too and my favorite remake by a mile.

I'd seen most of them running in the past but the Amstrad version looked good. I'd like to try that version for real.

Yes, I think the homebrew versions for the 2600, 7800 and Intellivision are very impressive and really bring the game a new level.  The 7800 XM version has to be most arcade accurate version out there.
