I loved Kangaroo when I was a kid.

There was an older kid in my town who was a pro on it, I still remember his initials: API (for the french guys... Alain Perron Innocent... LOL true story).
I am the monster that breathing men would kill.
I, am Dracula... (and you're not!)

Quite the contrary for me. The game I hate the most. I remember playing a ton of Atari games that had such quick action and responsive controls... and then you play this choppy, slow crappy game with lousy control response. It never felt like an Atari game. And the video explains why.

Another great doc! ... but not a great game imho either.

Back-in-the-day, cool cab got my attention and played it a few times but, yeah, too slow and choppy control, especially on the ladders. My quarters went back to Ms Pac, DK jr, Centipede, Frogger, or even Asteroids.
