From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Sky Skipper is a 1981 arcade game by Nintendo. In the game, the player pilots a biplane and must save animals and a royal family from gorillas holding them captured. This is done by dropping bombs on the gorillas to knock them out and unlock the cages, then diving down towards the cages to pick up the freed characters before the gorillas lock the cages again. An Atari 2600 port was released in 1983.
   In Sky Skipper, the player pilots a biplane through scrolling mazes to save animals caged by enemy gorillas. The player must drop bombs onto the gorillas which will temporarily knock them out and unlock the cages. Then, the player must swoop down to pick up the animals before the gorillas get up and lock the cages again. Flying into a gorilla or wall will result in the loss of one life. The plane also runs on fuel which is measured by a fuel gauge on the screen. Fuel can be replenished by picking up the animals. After the first stage is completed, the game continues up to a fourth stage, after which the four stages are repeated on increased difficulty.
