Note: This is for the Falcon boardset, the only legally released version of this game. All tricks are allowed, including the barrel skip and hammer drop. Under the original TG rules, the barrel skip was banned, which actually lowers the skill ceiling and point-pressing potential of the game. Using the barrel skip without properly pressing out the screen can actually cost the player more points than it earns in a high-pace game. It also doesn't allow the player to make it to the end of the game (unlike Donkey Kong, Crazy Kong has four kill screens, with the true final screen being the fourth screen of L=22. Each of the first three kill screens requires lightning-fast reflexes to clear).
