Description from the back cover:
This is the fastest paced video game anywhere. A race against the clock that only lightning-quick reflexes can win.
Three days. That's all that's left to bring back the Seven Wonder Herbs from the evil Empire of Draxor and asve King Voldam. The diabolical Crown Prince of Draxor has sent out a hellish army to guard them. Now he waits at the gates of the kingdom to lay it waste when the quest fails. The only ones with a chance to get through are Kid Kool -- and you.
You and the Kid are up against an assortment of enemies and obstacles that would turn most youngsters green. To get past them, all you have are furry friends called "wickies." And your magic jumping shoes.
Whatever happens, you've got to keep moving. But most of all, you've got to keep cool.
