Joe & Mac Returns © 1994 Data East Corp.


For this sequel to the sideways scrolling 1991 beat-em-up, "Caveman Ninja", Data East chose to eschew the former's gameplay and create a single-screen platformer with gameplay hugely similar to Toaplan's "Snow Bros.", released in 1990.

UPDATES

The only difference between the 2 revisions is that the earlier contains an original bug whereby if you get the 'transport to special stage' powerup at exactly the wrong time the game doesn't progress to the special stage, and you become stuck on the level you're on. The later revision fixes that bug.
