Several creatures seen in the game do not appear in the film, such as the Scorpio-pedes (giant centipedes with upright tail pincers like an earwig). They did, however, appear in the extended version. The game also includes several lines of dialogue that only appear in the extended cut of the film.
To immers the player, the game has no traditional heads-up display. Health is shown by the screen slowly turning red and blurred as the player is injured, and ammo counts are done verbally by the player character.
The game has no health pick-ups. Instead, the player's health will regenerate if combat is avoided after being injured. This is now commonplace in action games, but was a fairly unusual practice in 2005.
After clearing the game by 100% and earning enough score points in the stage replay, an alternative playable ending is available, where after replaying the famous airplane scene as Kong, Jack and Englehorn pilot the Venture's seaplane to take down the planes and searchlights to let Kong escape the Empire State Building and they can return him to Skull Island. Flying too near Kong will cause him to mistake the seaplane for an attacker and crash it.
