A downloadable game

A Commodore-264 series port of the Game & Watch version of Donkey Kong Junior. Once the VIC20  version was done this seemed an obvious next step. It was just a question of converting the c64 sprites into characters and squeezing them into the already-full character set, then using the VIC20 display code with the appropriate registers changed.
