Atari's Kangaroo was a minor hit in its day, and it was hard to find an arcade without one in 1982. They later made better-than-usual home versions of it for the Atari VCS and Atari 5200.
The Atari Times (Jun 27, 2007)
Even though I put my share of tokens or quarters into this game back in the day, it isn't quite as fun or as good as Donkey Kong or the plethora of other platform games that came out for personal computers and all (Aztec, Montezuma's Revenge.) Still one of TAT's site owner Greg's favorites though, even though a guy I met at a gaming expo from the past December had a different opinion of it (specifically saying "Not Kangaroo!" when asked what game to photograph him next to; sorry Greg!).
