Kao the Kangaroo, Cheats & Cheat Codes for Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Windows, and More

Kao the Kangaroo is a quirky platform game released on May 27, 2022, for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. It was developed and published by the Polish company Tate Multimedia. This game is the fourth installment in the franchise and a reboot of the series that left us hanging in 2005. While it shares the exact name with the original game, it is not a remaster but a continuation.

While it received mixed reviews, critics lauded its colorful art style, globe-incorporating combat, and unique level design. It is often compared to other platformer legends like Crash Bandicoot and Ratchet & Clank.

Kao the Kangaroo Premise

This game is a vivid third-person action-adventure platformer. It is set in a vibrant world full of anthropomorphic animals, including the titular character Kao. Kao is a kangaroo fighter who fights with his large boxing gloves as he goes on two personal quests — one to save his sister Kaia, the other to find his long-lost father, Koby. He must defeat the fighting masters who are under an evil influence and ultimately face the Eternal Warrior.

Kao the Kangaroo Cheat Codes

Unfortunately for players, Kao the Kangaroo (2022) has no in-game cheat codes available. Many modern games are abandoning the concept of cheat codes that were iconic decades ago.

Fortunately for players on PC, you can download a cheat trainer online. These trainers can make your gameplay more interesting by doing the following:

  • Infinite Extra Lives
  • Infinite Health/Hearts
  • Max Finisher Meter
  • Super Speed
