Geocache Description:


Note: The cache is not at the listed coordinates but is within one mile.

You are looking for a kangaroo and a joey that have jumped up roughly five feet into a large bush where they now hide.

Kangaroo was an arcade game released in 1982. It was manufactured by Sun Electronics but distributed by Atari. The player took the role of a mother kangaroo who was trying to rescue her son. She had to climb through treetops, while disabling pink monkeys that attacked her with apples. Points were scored for defeating enemies, eating the fruit scattered through the levels, as well as for punching out hostile monkeys (or by punching either whole apples that are thrown at the kangaroo, or apple cores, which are dropped dropped on her from above). Additionally, a bonus score was awarded for each level completed, with the size of the bonus determined by how quickly the level was solved.

Console versions of Kangaroo were developed by General Computer for Atari. The 2600 version was programmed by Josh Littlefield and Kevin Osborn while the 5200 version was programmed by Allen Wells.
