Friday Fun: Amigo Pancho

By Akemi Iwaya on May 20th, 2011


In this week’s game you get to head south of the border to help Pancho escape the canyon he is trapped in. You will need to have good timing and be able think your way through the traps along the way. Are you up for the challenge?

Amigo Pancho

The object of the game is to help Pancho escape from the bottom of the canyon, but you will have your work cut out for you to avoid the many dangers that await during his ascent.


You can choose to start the game immediately on level one, select a different level if you have unlocked it, or view the walkthrough.


There are twenty-five levels of canyon escaping goodness to keep you busy.


Here is the first level with some quick hints and Pancho’s introduction. You will need to click on particular items such as the wooden beams and crates to remove them (removable items will be outlined in a sky blue color). Remove the items in the proper order to help Pancho rise higher towards the top of the canyon. To help Pancho float up here click on the wooden beam supporting the boulder followed by the wooden crate above Pancho…

Note: You can disable all sound and music if desired in the lower left corner.


Moving up! If you happen to fail on a level it will automatically start over for you or if you need to do so, you can restart the level early using the text button in the upper right corner.


At the end of each level you can view your score, chose to replay the level, or move to the next level.


You definitely want to keep those cacti away from your balloon here!


Pancho is on his way…


From the second level onwards you will see your individual level and total scores displayed together.


Things start to get a bit more interesting on the third level. Pancho will begin to rise upwards automatically and you have to protect him from the two cacti shooting cactus needles at his balloons. Your timing will definitely need to be good here or Pancho will fall!


As you continue through the upper levels you will encounter banditos with machetes, giant flying spiky bats, cannons, and more. Have fun!
