Author's comments and explanations:
Kangaroo is a 1982 arcade game that bears striking gameplay resemblance to Donkey Kong. The player controls a mother kangaroo who must rescue her son from a gang of monkeys.

Not much to say about this TAS. It's a nice little game to play if you want to burn a minute, or need a quick TAS project to help learn the ropes of optimization. I felt like the Atari systems needed more repertoire, and of course they're small and easy, so they make for good training TASes.

Possible improvements, if there are any, could come from possible platform skips that I missed, or any monkey/falling dot manipulation.

Thanks for watching.

Mothrayas: An Atari 2600 run that appears simplistic, but not unoptimized. Accepting for the Vault.
