Wallaby Wrestling Federation

Welcome to the Whacky World of Wallaby Wrestling!

The Championship is a title fought over by two to six players. When you type in your names, remember your colours! These are the colours you will play in. In the tournament, everyone plays everyone else.

The name of the game is bouncing. You have five stamina points (top of screen). If you bounce on top of the other wallaby, he loses a stamina point. The first wallaby to run out of points loses.

In you find yourself running out of stamina though, all is not lost! From time to time, heart will float across the ring. Collect it and you get a point back (to a maximum of five points).

Wallaby Wrestling is a popular sport. After each fight the results are reported on the front page of various newspapers.

After all games have been played, the wallaby with the highest score (in games) wins or in the event of a draw the tournament goes to another round. The colours will change in this round so make sure you know which is your wallaby.

Oh, and sometimes the arena gets drawn in red or pink. That's not a bug. It's to make the wallabies show up better.

That's about all you need to know. I'm sorry there isn't a one player option or a save tournament option. I'm working on it!
