Welcome to this week's arcade thread brought to you by Wiccy. XD

This week we have two games again even though one only appears in the intro and outro. So let's start with that one first.

First up we have Kangaroo.

Marquee:


Kangaroo was developed by Sun Electronics and distributed by Atari and was released in 1982. This game spawned a cartoon series of the same name for Saturday Supercade on CBS. It aired in 1984 and lasted only 13 episodes.

In Kangaroo you play as a mother kangaroo trying to save joeys. You need to do this while avoiding monkeys that have a rude habit of throwing apples at you.

There are four rounds per level and each level consists of the same four rounds only becoming more difficult. Rounds one, two and four are similar in nature in which you jump from branches and climb ladders to get to the joey at the top. Round three however is a bit different. In this round monkeys are holding up a cage with a joey inside. To reach the joey you need to punch the monkeys holding up the cage a few times to knock them out and bring the cage down to a level you can jump to it. You need to do this before more monkeys come to lift up the cage and before the monkeys break the branch making a huge amount of apples fall down.

Now onto our second game for this week and it is Rescue.

Marquee:


Rescue is brought to you by Stern Electronics. It was released in 1982

In Rescue you are a rescue helicopter pilot trying to recover downed pilots who have parachuted into the ocean. But the enemy will not make this easy for you. While you are trying to rescue your fellow pilots you will be under constant attack from helicopters and the pilots in the water will be under attack from sharks. In higher levels you will also encounter enemy subs and ships which also do not like you trying to rescue your pilot friends.

For your defense your helicopter can fire in eight directions to destroy enemy helicopters and kill sharks. You also have bombs you can drop from under your helicopter to destroy enemy subs and ships.

Each level requires you to pick up a set amount downed pilots shown at the start of each level. Once you have the rescued the pilots you need to safely drop them off onto a nearby island.
