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 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.

B.C. Kid 2 is the European name. : P

So of 17 HuCards I wanted to dump, just this one was a dud--second card I've had die on me I think, after Vigilante some years ago. And I've got Bonk's Revenge on the Gate of Thunder 3-in-1, so I guess that was the one I could spare!
