A platform/run and jump game where you play as kangaroo who must climb and rescue it’s captured baby kangaroo. 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.

Note: Used Invincibility cheat. The game is endless so I killed myself afterwards.

  1. I have seen some shitty Kangaroo players before but this… this…

  2. Couldn’t beat the third level, so you turned on the cheat mode. 😂

  3. 1:34 sounds like tapper, put this at 0.5 speed and that sounds like tapper

  4. The big ape takes your boxing gloves away if he hits you, and you can’t punch for about 10 secs. You see kangaroo put up a white flag in this video if you try to punch during that time.

    Try avoiding the big ape or sneak up behind him and punch him.

  5. I always wondered what that baby kangaroo says when he finds his mommy. Today I found out: "ママ!" means "mama!"

  6. I bought this on Switch because I love kangaroos

  7. I can't believe they made this a cartoon

  8. Such a cute little game, it brings a smile to my face.

  9. Its just been ann ouced that its being ported to Nintendo,s Switch & the PS4 under Hamsters Arcade Archives?

  10. Boxing kangaroos and gorillas on tree limbs? I think whoever designed this game was smoking some of the funny stuff.
