Atari Video Computer System / 2600


Scoring trick: On the 1st screen, running against the right side of the screen earns points.  This also works on the 2nd screen, on either side.  1st screen tips Ė run diagonally UP and DOWN against the top-right side of the screen (picture #1) and set the Right Difficulty switch to A to increase your speed and earns more points.  {Ben Valdes}

Itís possible to jump the crevice (on the first screen) twice, from left-to-right.  Itís extremely hard, but it can be done. Itís also possible (and easier) to jump back right-to-left. {Scott Stilphen}

BUG: Fall off the top ledge after finishing 1st screen (while itís scrolling down Ė picture #2).  You then wonít be able to jump on the 2nd screen (but you can walk onto the lily pads and ape heads Ė maybe even the center barriers?). {Scott Stilphen}

BUG:  Jump to the right from the spot shown in picture #3 and hold the joystick RIGHT - your character will stay ďstuckĒ on the side of the mountain until you let go.  {Scott Stilphen}

BUG:  Collision detection is a bit off.  Coconuts often pass though you without harm, or it may appear youíre not standing on something when you are (picture #4).

BUG:  With a few systems, the game may inexplicably RESET itself upon reaching the second screen.  {Markus Graf}

FRYING: May reward up to 600,000 points! {Scott Stilphen}
