This is a separate single game tournament and has no relation to the current MGL tournament 5 which is currently in progress.

    Kangaroo (Atari)
    Rom: Kangaroo (Atari) kangaroa



    A platform game in which the player controls a mother Kangaroo who must climb through the treetops trying to rescue her captured son. Numerous monkeys, the kidnappers of her child, roam the levels set on stopping the player's progress. The monkeys constantly throw apples at the Kangaroo which must either be avoided (either by ducking or jumping, depending on the height of the approaching apple), or punched away, the latter of which allows the Kangaroo to punch the apple back towards the attacking monkey.

    If the player stalls for too long or does not punch either an apple or a monkey, a giant ape will appear and steal the Kangaroo's boxing gloves, leaving the player temporarily defenseless. The gloves are returned after a short time.

    Fruit and vegetables litter the levels and can be picked up for bonus points. Each level also has a bell hanging from one of its platforms, which can be punched to make fruit and vegetable items appear. The game consists of 4 different stages, once these are completed the game begins again with an increased level of difficulty.

    - TRIVIA -

    Released in June 1982.

        I used to hate this game, but being Kangaroo had to play it in the Arcades.
        Since MAME (bless you) have had a few cracks at it, and forgave the clunky movement.
        Boxing gloves on!

          I have a real soft spot for it. We use to go on holidays when i was yong to Thunderbird Park up on Tambourine Mountain. there were a selct few games up there but I remember that Kangaroo and Moon Patrol were 2 of them and the first games i sought after when I started collecting.

                      There is no incentive for anyone to post their scores early. Every one will post at 11.59 tomorrow night

                            15,000

                            Well that's the best i can do.

                            I know it's not good enough to take the prize but i don't know what a gameX is anyway or what i'd do with it for that matter.

                            I just like to compete.
