Mario, our hero from The King is back. This time we find him lost in the tropical wastes of the Amazon, frantically trying to get back to his plane. He must outwit the elusive spiders, bouncing snails, jumping frogs, some rather smart monkeys and finally hope that bird doesn't get him when his parachute opens.
100% machine code, high resolution graphics, super sound and four screens.
Your aim is to climb to the top right corner of the screen. Make your way up avoiding the spiders and the venomous snails.
You must stop on the cliffs to pick up the treasures en route.
Press the Fire button button to draw the rope. Hold the Fire button down to move from one side to another.

Jumping over a frog or a spider gives you extra points.

Press the Fire button whilst you are moving to make the man jump in the air. Press the Fire button a second time to open the parachute.
If you open the parachute too soon, you will stay hung up on the first branch. If you don't open it fast enough, you will crash in the boat.
