King Kong has captured the girl and put her on top of the Empire State Building. You must climb up and save her. But watch out, King Kong is throwing bombs. If you're quick, you can jump over them and score points. But if you miss, you'll be blown to bits. Some of the bombs are magic. if you jump them, you'll score extra points and get boosted to the next higher floor. There are holes in some of the floors too. You have to take a running jump to get over these, or else you'll fall through... and splat.
When you are ready to play, press the game reset switch. King Kong will jump up to the seventh floor of the building and put the girl on top of the building. You will start with three men, displayed at the lower left of the TV screen for player one: at the lower right for player two. When your man is killed, the number of men you have left will be displayed. When you've lost your third man, the game is over. At the end of a two player game, the players' scores will be displayed alternately. Player one's score will be displayed with a man at the lower left, player two's with a man at the lower right.
Jumping over a bomb will add 25 points to your score. Jumping over a magic bomb will add 125 points to your score. Bonus points are displayed at the top right of the TV screen. The bonus points start at 990 and count down at 10 points per second. When the man reaches the top of the building, the bonus points will be added to your score. The faster you get the man to the top, the higher your bonus. If the bonus points reach zero, your man is killed.
