A Game Boy version was released in 1992 and a Nintendo Entertainment System version was released in 1994.


The game's protagonist is Bonk, a strong caveboy who battles dinosaurs. Bonk can use pieces of meat as power-ups, these lend him special abilities and make him stronger. There are three stages of powerup: his normal self, a second stage during which he can stun enemies by pounding on the ground, and third stage where he becomes temporarily invulnerable. In the original game, the second stage turns Bonk into a caveman, but in Japanese versions of the second and third game, he becomes a cavewoman. This gender transformation was scrapped for the US entries in the series.

Development and release history

In 2003, Hudson Soft included a 3D remake of Bonk's Adventure in their Hudson Selection series of games released exclusively in Japan for the Nintendo GameCube.

The TurboGrafx-16 version was released for the Wii Virtual Console on November 21, 2006, and as of December 6, it is one of the most purchased games. It was later released on the Wii U's Virtual Console as well.
