You Hold The Keys!
Your brother has been kidnapped and is being held in an old underground mine. Now you must embark on a quest to save him before it's too late. But be careful, the caves are filled with many dangerous obstacles.
Good luck, Panky! Your brother is counting on you!
As Panky the Panda, you must rescue your brother from the poacher's cave. But it will not be easy! The poacher's lair is packed with various minions as well as secret rooms disguised as unassuming walls, so stay on the lookout! Depending on the amount of keys and special items in his inventory, Panky can move through over 120 danger-filled screens.
While exploring the caves, stay alert, as there are many dangers that can put a quick end to your brother's rescue! These include bats, cave pigs, duck goons, fireballs, spiked platforms, and more! And also be careful not to fall to your death as Pandas cannot fly! Be on the lookout for the six keys that will open doors throughout the cave. And watch for special items that can help you on your quest! These include the candle, high jump boots, flute, holy book, and snow boots.
Remember that not all walls are as they appear! The cave is filled with secret pathways used by the poachers. If you get stuck, we've included a map that could offer a clue to help you past your current quagmire!
- Over 120 screens to explore!

Get a Panky the Panda Box!
If you'd like a boxed copy of Panky the Panda, please select "Box Upgrade: Yes" at the top of the page before adding Panky the Panda to your cart. Our boxes are professionally printed and include a box insert to hold your Panky the Panda cartridge in place. We want you to play our games, so we have not sealed or shrinkwrapped the boxes in any way, allowing you easy access to the game cartridge and manual.
These boxes are the same size as boxes Atari produced for their games "back in the day". They look great sitting on a shelf with your other boxed homebrew games, or alongside games from the classic Atari 2600 library. We only have a limited number of boxes for each game, and there is no guarantee they will become available again once our supplies are exhausted. Click on the images to the right to see larger photos of the box.

Even though you may cuss at the screen from dying repeatedly on difficult jumps, it gets easier the more you played it.
Thankfully, when you "Continue" you keep all of your items!
It's amazing what these programmers are able to do with this system now.
