Sky Skipper (Japanese: スカイスキッパー, Sukai Sukippā) is an early arcade game developed by Nintendo Research & Development 1 and produced by Nintendo in 1981, shortly after the success of Donkey Kong. Unlike Donkey Kong, the game never received much recognition and is not very popular. The arcade cabinets for Sky Skipper were never released outside of Japan, but a simplified and graphically inferior version of the game with the same name was released in North America for the Atari 2600 in 1983.

The enemies fought in this game are also primates (known as 'Gorilla'), and the protagonist Sky Skipper (alias Mr. You) must stun them and save the King, Queen and other inhabitants of the Wonder Kingdom. The other characters are "Spade", "Heart" the hen, "Dia" the rabbit and "Club" the frog.

In other media[edit]

In Game Boy Camera, the 'LINK' menu for printing and transferring photographs is decorated with artwork from the decals of Sky Skipper's arcade flyer, as well as artwork from the arcade cabinet itself.
