Kangaroo (Japanese: カンガルー) is an arcade platform game that was released in 1982. It was manufactured by Sun Electronics and distributed by Atari. Kangaroo is one of the first arcade games similar in style to Donkey Kong without being a direct knock-off. The player takes the role of a mother kangaroo wearing boxing gloves, who is trying to rescue her son from fruit-throwing monkeys.
Unusually for a game with jumping, there is no jump button. Instead, the player pushes up—or up and diagonally—to jump.
