Game Details

A platform climber, sort of like congo bongo(?). The object is to get the giant's treasure and get down the beanstalk. There are four main boards and four levels. The first level had 2 boards, the second level had 3, and the third level had all 4, ala Donkey Kong.

The first board is a huge vine and things would fly at you while you attempted to climb/jump up to the top. The second is a broken brick floor with ladders where a goose lays falling golden eggs that you try to catch. Once you get to the top floor, you have to fly down the beanstalk before the time runs out.

We have no info on boards 3 and 4...

Uses same hardware as Naughty Boy.
