SLIME CITY KIDNAP
The Fratelli fraternity is at it again! Ma Fratelli, her two nitwit sons and crazy Cousin Pipsqueak have kidnapped your Goonie buddies and Annie the Mermaid. You're the only Goonie left who can sneak into their hideout, destroy the master computer, and keep your pals from becoming dog meat. But sneaking in won't be easy. The place is riddled with secret caverns and man-eating Fish. If a gang member doesn't get you, Ma Fratelli will try.
GAME PLAY: Ma's holding your six Goonie buddies and best friend Annie the Mermaid in a creepy underground hideout. To rescue them, you have to fight your way through a dozen mazes with enemies galore ready to get you. But you have your defenses--a slingshot, yo-yo, boomerang, underwater gun, bomb, and molotov cocktail. Seventeen magic implements and many secret messages help you. A password lets you keep your implements for the next game--if you remember the word! Get to know the neighborhood. Only the strong survive in the Adventure Scene. This game is sure to test your wits and imagination.
