Back of Cartridge Case - Genesis (United States):
    BASH! BIFF! POW! Alex Kidd is punching, kicking, and leaping through Paperock Planet, trying to save his dad! He’s having a tough time, what with scorpions, pufferfish, monkeys, and mummies blocking his way!

    THUD! SPLAT! BOOM! Alex knocks down a rock pile and grabs the gold! Every time he gets gold, he’s got a better chance to win! Then he bounces high in the sky and dives deep under the ocean to snare more!

    PAPER! SCISSORS! ROCK! Alex gets dragged into a frantic game of Janken. He’s got to make the right sign—paper, scissors, or rock—to beat his bully opponent and escape with all his money!

    UP! UP! AND AWAY! Alex speeds in his Pedicopter, right up to the Enchanted Castle! Now he can save his dad by tricking Ashra, the ruler of Paperock. But what’s the winning sign? Guess quick!!

    Throw the rock

    Cut the bosses down to size with the Kidd

    When King Thor was kidnapped, his son, Alex Kidd, held out hope that his father would return to their kingdom on Planet Aries. Finally, it was revealed that he was being held captive on Planet Paperock. As Alex, you’ll race to his rescue through 11 levels, battling enemies and avoiding obstacles while winning coins that will buy you special items and vehicles. At the end of each level, you’ll encounter a boss and enter into a match of “Rock, Paper, Scissors.” Throw the right symbols and you’ll be ever closer to bringing King Thor home; throw the wrong symbols and you’ll be squashed beneath a heavy weight.
