(PC Genjin 3)

PC Genjin 3 is a side scrolling platform game developed by Red Company and published by Hudson Soft. The crazy PC Engine's mascot is back in service in this last episode of the PC Genjin series for the system. Players will find here all of the core gameplay elements which made the PC Genjin series so popular - same wacky character designs and (somehow) familiar landscapes. Our caveman's main attack, the head-kick, still remains a major part of the gameplay, but our hero has a plethora of new tricks in his "bald head" bag. As always, juicy meat turns him into a crazy form and powers him up - however, he can also turn cute and cuddly, and blow kiss-attacks at his enemies (this form was removed from the American release, see the info section). Special candies directly borrowed from Alice in Wonderland have been added to the arsenal of tricks the caveman can use in battle - blue ones make him grow to a huge size whereas red ones cause him to shrink into a tiny head-butting fellow no larger than a mouse. This last power can be especially handy to get through small holes and other secret passageways. The game has a lot more in reserve and our hero can even turn into a red crab at times, get swallowed by weird looking swimming fish and fight them from the inside, or squeeze through pipes at breakneck speed. The game consists of seven levels, and a multi-player option is available where two players can simultaneously enjoy intense head-butting action.
