A note about this game and several other fine Atari games:
A few years back Activision released 45 of their finest games in three volumes of 
their
Atari Action Pack.  I used the version of Keystone Kapers included in the Atari 
Action Pack.
Finding these games aren't hard, and at 15 games for maybe ten bucks, it's a good 
deal.

Current Version:
Version 1.00-01/27/01 - The first, and probably only version of this walkthrough.

THE HAZARDS:
YOU LOSE 9 SECONDS ON ALL HAZARDS

|RADIO  |UP TWO 2 PER LEVEL SCREEN | 
|PLANE  |INSTANT DEATH, 2 SPEEDS   |
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THE ELEVATORS:
Ignore these unless they're convenient.  Most of the time spent waiting for one is 
better used
running toward an escalator.  Also, the Krook will change direction if you get onto 
his level
in an elevator.

From here on out, the levels stay the same.  You're going to just have to continue 
through all 
the obstacles.  If you should make it much beyond level 15, then you're doing 
great.  Just 
remember, you get an extra life every ten thousand points.

HINTS:
Jump onto the Escalators, You'll save some time.
Don't get stuck on the roof, there's no way down.
Don't jump over the beach balls when they bounce high up.
Always duck under airplanes.
