Description

The third game in the Kao the Kangaroo series finds Kao trapped on a tropical island after a plane crash. With his friend stuck inside a volcano, Kao has to collect four mystic artifacts in order to be able to reach him and get him safely off the island. Like the previous Kao games, it's a standard 3D platformer; Kao runs around collecting items, solving fetch quests and attacking enemies using his boxing gloves. It also features a number of minigames, including a plane-flying minigame at the very beginning of the game.

Trivia

Cancelled console port

While this was the first Kao game not to be ported to consoles, its page on the developer's website mentions an otherwise unannounced Wii port and includes screenshots which appear to come from that version.

English release

Following the bankruptcy of Titus, this became the first Kao game not to be released in Western Europe or North America. Its only English release was an extremely limited release in Australia. Because this English version was so rare, and saw no promotion, its existence was not actually confirmed until a copy was found in 2017.
