This is a top-notch arcade adaptation. The graphics are splendid from your high-resolution marsupial right down to the knuckle-walking anthropoids.
The Video Game Critic (Oct 14, 2000)
I've seen several versions of this likeable platformer, but this is by far the best. It contains all four screens, each providing a unique challenge. The object is to guide a mother kangaroo past apple-throwing monkeys to save her baby, and similarities to Donkey Kong are hard to ignore. The graphics are arcade-perfect, with well-defined, smoothly animated objects. For once, the Atari 5200 controller turns out to be an asset, as pushing the joystick diagonally to jump is a piece of cake. Kangaroo isn't easy, but it is fun and habit-forming.
Kangaroo is a fine game for the Atari 5200, barely a TOP 10 in my opinion. If you happen to find one while you are scouring the world for games.... do yourself a favor: pick it up and have some fun!
