The history of the 1982 taito classic from PatmanQC, Zoo Keeper is an arcade game created by Taito America and released in 1982. The player controls Zeke, a zookeeper, attempting to rescue his girlfriend Zelda from a zoo where the animals have escaped from their cages. The majority of the game takes place on a screen where the player builds a wall to keep animals in the zoo—jumping them to avoid contact. Platforming segments are interspersed every few levels. The game was available as a conversion kit for Taito’s Qix.
Zoo Keeper was not ported to contemporary home systems, but some development work was done on an unfinished Atari 2600 version.
