    A LONG, LONG TIME AGO, LATER THAN YOU THINK AND SOONER THAN YOU KNOW, THERE WAS A STRANGE AND TERRIBLE KINGDOM...

    "HELP! BONK! SAVE ME!"
    TREE: "I WOULDN'T WANT TO BE IN KING DROOL'S SHOES ONCE BONK BONKS HIS WAY TO HIM!"

    DROOL: "BONK... HAH! THAT CRUDE CAVEBOY WILL NEVER MAKE HIS WAY HERE... I'VE SEEN TO IT! YOU'RE MINE, PRINCESS!"
    PRINCESS ZA: "YOU MUST BE JOKING! NOTHING CAN STOP BONK!"

    BONK: "SHE'S NOT TALKING THROUGH HER CROWN, EITHER! BRICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK MY BONES... -- BUT NOT WHEN I BONK 'EM WITH MY HEAD!"

    TREES: "WOW! THAT'S... REALLY USING YOUR HEAD!" [B0NK!]

    BONK: "WOAH! I WASN'T COUNTING ON YOU SHOWING UP!"
    DINO: "I'M COUNTING THE PAY DROOL GAVE ME TO STOP YOU! I'M WORKING FOR HIM NOW!"
    FLOWER: "BONK, OVER HERE!"

    [ROARRRRR] BONK: I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH POWER YET FOR A HEAD-ON COLLISION WITH YOU... BUT I WILL WHEN I PICK THIS FLOWER..."

    BONK: "... AND CHARGE UP WITH MEAT AND OTHER GOOD THINGS AND -- [WHOOSH!] ... GO NUCLEAR!"

    BONK: "YIKE! THE TERRIBLE T. RACTORHEAD! IT'S ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER IN THIS PLACE!"

    BONK: "TO BONK HIM, I'LL NEED ANOTHER FLOWER FOR TWICE THE POWER!"

    BONK: "OOOPS! A VENUS BONKTRAP! I'M STUCK!" [CHOMP!]

    PRINCESS: "I'M DOOMED... UNLESS YOU SAVE BONK SO HE CAN RESCUE ME... IN THE ALL-NEW TURBO-GRAFX 16 BONK'S ADVENTURE"

    Bonk has returned and it's just the way you've always loved him. It's 10,000 B.C. and the lizardous "King Drool" has Princess Za in his evil clutches! Join Bonk as he journeys through five sprawling levels of the prehistoric past to rescue the princess. Bonk will literally have to use his head to propel himself up cliff sides, out-think boss characters, solve puzzles, and best of all smash enemies and objects!

    Bonk's Adventure was originally released in 1990 for the TurboGrafx-16 system and won Game of the Year honors, as well as many other accolades. With the introduction of the Nintendo Wii's™ Virtual Console™, Hudson is pleased to announce Bonk's Adventure as the first title available under the TurboGrafx-16 library. A new generation of fans will enjoy the comedic gameplay elements that made Bonk's Adventure so unique, while fans of the original will once again be able to relive Bonk's exploits.
