ARCADE GAMING: KANGAROO [1982 - SUN ELECTRONICS/ATARI]

About every other person I knew had this Donkey Kong ripoff on Atari 2600 back in the day but I don't recall ever seeing the original Sun arcade game.  

In Kangaroo, avoid and punch out the apple-hurling monkeys and Mike Tyson pops out on occasion, trying to steal your boxing gloves instead of your ear.  Rescue your baby kangaroo in four levels - I'm surprised I made it all the way through because the arcade version is a little more difficult and the apples can be hard to dodge if you're climbing a ladder.
