This might be a dumb question but,
Why does the Jungle King's hair change color every level?

You know, I have to wonder if there are other people out there like me, who will say 'YOIKS! And away!' like Daffy Duck in Robin Hood Daffy during the first stage.

Unknown if this was a glitch or intended effect (because it is easily altered so it doesn't happen ala Jungle Hunt). It DOES happen in the original arcade game, tho...so MAME is accurately emulating the effect.

I developed Chuck Knoblauch Syndrome when I inexplicably lost four successive lives spanning two games in trying to rescue the girl.

Depends on how many you've killed consecutively (<4=100,4+=200) and whether you struck when it's jaws are open (add 100 to previous amount).
