In the great Banana kingdom, the Banana nation possesses a great symbol of prosperity - a big banana. One day, the Prince is engaged in a conversation with the Dragonmaster, when the evil Paprika Dragon flies over, saying "quack, quack!", and... oh horror - steals the holy banana! The Dragonmaster is desperate. "Fear not", - says the Prince, - "for I shall embark on the perilous journey and return our dearest possession to the folk". And that is exactly what he does!

Banana Prince is an action platformer. You travel between locations on the world map in a linear fashion, entering various platform levels - forests, caves, towers, etc. The Prince will find various weapons during his journey and use them to take care of the numerous enemies. You can also collect rings scattered everywhere and use them as currency in shops, where you can acquire various items.
