Personal review
The little man that you control in-game was originally named Jumpman and was latter renamed to the Mario that you know today. Mario was also a carpenter and latter changed jobs to a plummer.

Official description
Many official instruction exists:

1. Insert coin (s).
2. Select one or two players.
3. Controller moves Jumpman in 4 directions.
4. Jump button makes Jumpman jump.
5. If Jumpman reaches top, Donkey Kong takes the lady higher up, and structure changes shape.
6. When a certain structures have been cleared, Jumpman saves the lady.

This one is quote silly, as the controlled character sounds like the Kong instead of Jumpman (Mario)

- Rescue the lady by using the control lever!
- Drive the Kong into upper corner by clearing each difficult situation in limited time.
- You can get points when the Donkey jumps.
- When extra score is reached, you will have another man.
- If you finish early, the remaining time will be added as an extra bonus points.

Editor note
First game designed by Shigeru Miyamoto, and Nintendo's first success. A masterpiece derived from Space Panic's platform ideas, this game also introduced Mario to the gaming scene (although he was originally known as Jumpman). Biggest game of 1981.
