This page will give a walkthrough for the opening Prologue sequence of Kao the Kangaroo.
The game starts with a dark and mysterious backdrop, with some characters running, one of which is a female kangaroo. This female kangaroo’s name is Kaia and is taken by some dark force, with the male kangaroo, who is Kao and the main protagonist, tries to save her. After a short little scene, you will be given control of Kao, so move forward to have an enemy spawn in front of you. Hit the Square /X (Xbox)/Y (Switch)button to punch the enemy, who should go down after three hits.
A piece of land will move into position after defeating that single enemy, so move forward to find some more enemies will spawn. As you’re smacking them around with your boxing gloves, you will notice a meter filling up in the top left corner of the screen. This is your special meter and it fills rather quickly, as long as you keep punching enemies. Once it’s completely full, you should see a button prompt appear over enemies, which is your cue to press the Triangle /Y (Xbox)/ X (Switch) button to initiate your special attack.
Kao will jump into the air, then slam down into the ground, producing a small shockwave that does pretty good damage to enemies in range. It’s a good idea to do this whenever you have a lot of enemies surrounding you, or even a single enemy that might have more health than usual. After downing the three enemies on the second “island,” continue on with this little area and defeating the rest of the enemies that appear. At the end, approach the barrier thing for a cutscene, then the game will move to Hopalloo Island for another cutscene. You won’t get to explore this area just yet, as you’re forced to go to Walt’s Dojo for some training.
