Bakushou Yoshimoto No Shinkigeki is based on a popular and hilarious Japanese comedy series. The player takes control of a very cartoony and hilarious character without any noticeable super powers or anything of the sort. He can run and jump on other characters' heads to stun them in a Mario-ish way. It is not clear who the enemies are though - nothing seems to be really harmful in Bakushou Yoshimoto No Shinkigeki... The player loses a heart if hit by any of the dozens of characters wondering around the game, but they all look friendly and somehow amusing. Except maybe for these wild running dogs. Anyway. Countless items are also scattered around the various levels and they are virtually always in the shape of food - such as hamburgers or rice - and they obviously can give the player some of his precious health back. However, some special items give the player special funny powers for a short time and often clean up everything on screen. Levels can also be non linear in places and they always end up with a crazy challenge the player must win to carry on his journey.
Bakushou Yoshimoto no Shinkigeki was released on Decemebr 24, 1994 in Japan for 8800 yen.
