Game Play

On even numbered levels, your characters are a gorilla and a paint roller and the Amidars are savages and pigs, respectively. Filling the four corner boxes of the screen gives you a short time to chase the Amidars and score extra points. You also have a jump button that causes all the enemies to jump, allowing you to escape from a close situation. You start with three "jumps" on every level. In between levels, there is a chance to earn 5000 bonus points. Here, a savage or pig moves across the top of the screen. By pushing the jump button, the savage or pig traces a path across the boxes towards the bottom of the screen. If the savage or pig reaches a bunch of bananas, the bonus is awarded. The game has infuriatingly catchy music.
