On real hardware and emulators you can play 2-Player link vs mode for any level (Crunch-up recommended).

* Web-based emulator version uses the Game Boy Color ROM
You can download the ROM file, run the Gameboy (or Game Gear) emulator in your browser or pick up a physical cartridge for the Game Boy Color version at Catskull Electronics.

Wow, what an unique and enjoyable game! It's so cool that you found those "long" animals that would really fit into the game. So much fun, so many possibilities! Thanks!
