Description

Stanley must dodge the coconuts being dropped by the monkey. If his umbrella is hit, he'll still be protected by his hat. If his hat is hit, he has no protection left. If he's hit with no protection, game over. At both 500 and 1500 points, Stanley can earn a lost item of protection. The monkey must rest occasionally, and will not start throwing coconuts again until provoked by Stanley's movement (press the joystick button). Each round goes faster than the last. Points are scored points for each coconut dodged. Advanced difficulty means Stanley moves slowly. With Beginner difficulty he's faster.

Players take turns losing protection in two player mode. There is not interaction between players.

"Beagle Brothers" is a mysterious label that many Atari cartridges have that are not produced by the similarly named "Beagle Bros". It may be a pirate operation, but this is unknown. Coconuts is one such game available with the Beagle Brothers label.
