Bucky O'Hare © 1992 Konami Co., Ltd.
Action platformer video game for the Famicom based on the comic book series of the same name. The game required Bucky to rescue each of his crew members (except Bruiser, who is not featured in the game) on a series of planets. As each character was rescued, the player gained the ability to switch between them and Bucky on the fly to deal with different problems. Immediately after regaining his entire crew, they are once again captured and imprisoned on the Toad mother ship. Bucky and Blinky, sharing the same cell, break out and must rescue the remaining members. Afterwards, the player continues through the ship.
Bucky O'Hare for Famicom was released on January 31, 1992 in Japan.
Bucky O'Hare was directed by Masato Maegawa who founded Treasure the same year the game was released.
The music in this game was composed by Tomoko Sumiyama. The Escape theme was later included in the Doujin CD soundtrack Level Up! which was released March 2009 in Japan.
