[Screen shot of game with Stanley holding umbrella and Coco hurling one
nut down at him]
Coco the crazy monkey is on the loose again, hurling coconuts down on our
intrepid jungle explorer, Stanley I. Presume.
Your job? Help Stanley avoid those falling coconuts. But be prepared.
The better you do, the crazier Coco gets, and the faster the coconuts fly.
OBJECT OF THE GAME
Make Coco go Nuts! And get the highest possible score before Coco knocks
GETTING READY TO PLAY
Play with one or two players using the Joystick Controllers. Always be
sure the power is off before inserting or removing the CocoNuts cartridge
from your video game system. Use the controller plugged into the LEFT
CONTROLLER jack for one player games. Hold the controller so the red
button is to your upper left.
With the difficulty switch in the "B" position, Stanley moves quickly,
making it much easier to dodge coconuts-and drive Coco nuts! The "A"
position slows Stanley down, making your job much more difficult.
TO BEGIN PLAY
Press game reset. (For two-person game press game select button and then
reset.) Push red button when you're ready to be bombarded. Move the
joystick controller from side to side to make sure Stanley doesn't get hit.
HOW THE GAME PROGRESSES
Stanley starts out well-equpped, with both an umbrella and a pith
helmet. Hit number one-he loses the umbrella, Hit number two-bye bye helmet.
But all is not lost! Upon reaching 500 points-and again at 1500
points-you earn back the last piece of equipment Stanley lost. The game
is over when Stanley takes a git directly on the head.
You'll notice that even crazy monkeys have to rest! So the coconuts come
in a series and then stop. (You might want to catch your breath too!)
To continue play just press the red button. That makes Coco madder and
madder. And he starts throwing faster and faster.
You earn points every time Coco misses. The faster the coconuts fly, the
higher your score.
Series Points per coconut
1 and 2 5 pts
3 and 4 10 pts
5 and 6 15 pts
7 to end 20 pts
TWO PLAYER GAME
(For two-person game press game select button and then reset.) Players
alternate each time Stanley gets hit by a coconut. Stanley changes color
and the next player pushes the red button on the joystick controller to
start his turn. Scores are color-coded, corresponding to player colors.
Play continues until both players are knocked out.
