From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Roc'n Rope is a 1983 arcade game developed and published by Konami (published by Kosuka/Interlogic in some markets). The player, a flashlight and harpoon-gun equipped archaeologist, had to ascend a series of rocky platforms in a Lost World scenario to reach a Phoenix bird. Coleco released versions of Roc'n Rope for the Atari 2600 and ColecoVision.
   The player has to avoid ferocious man-sized dinosaurs and belligerent red-haired cavemen against which are there aren't direct means of offense. The only ways to defeat the opponents is either temporary (dazing them with the flashlight) or indirect (waiting for them to be suspended on a harpoon rope to make them fall down), an element which adds a certain amount of trickiness to the game. Bonus items to collect include fallen phoenix feathers and phoenix eggs, which grant the player invulnerability from the prehistoric denizens for a short period of time.
   Roc'n Rope was the first 'wire action' game. It would later become the basis for the 1987 game Bionic Commando, which Tokuro Fujiwara intended to be an expanded version of Roc'n Rope.
