The squirrel Berri decides to throw a surprise birthday party for her boyfriend Conker. However, the Evil Acorn breaks up the party and abducts Berri along with all the presents. Without delay, Conker embarks on a quest to rescue his sweetheart and bring back the presents.
Conker travels through many top-down levels, trying to find presents that the Evil Acorn has stolen. Conker is equipped with a slingshot to battle enemies, such as mutant plants, snakes, and others. Players encounter a few mini-games on their adventure, including olympic-type games.
This, barring his presence in Diddy Kong Racing, is the only game in which Conker appears in his original "innocent" form. His other games are aimed at Mature audiences.
The best possible rating to get in Conker's Pocket Tales is "Secret Squirrel". To earn this rating, you must play the Game Boy Color version of the game and collect everything - without saving the game.
