|The second in the "Pithecanthropus Computerurus Genjin" series about a young head-strong caveman (and a clever pun on "PC Engine," you see--plus "Genjin" babelfishes to "Primitive Man") bashing along through various colorful platform levels.|
Known as "Bonk's Revenge" in the States, and released there later as a pack-in with the Turbo Duo on the "Gate of Thunder" Super-CD (see entry 476).
|While we're tracing the weird names and ports of this game, it seems worth mentioning that vgmuseum.com has a screenshot of the later GB port of PC Genjin 2, apparently a western version, with "B.C. Kid 2" on the title screen. But then there was another version with "Bonk's Revenge" on the title screen.|
B.C Kid, PC Genjin--wild stuff, I tell ya.
