Takahashi Meijin no B?kenjima is a fun side-scrolling action game by Hudson Soft. The game seems to follow the adventures of Takahashi Meijin no Daiboukenjima released in 1992 for the Super Famicom. Takahashi Meijin is about to spend some well deserved time with his (just wed) wife. But things didn't really go according to plans and an evil bad guy has decided to kidnap his beloved Tina and six children from the local island. Takahashi embarks again on a journey to save not only his wife and six children, but also his hometown. Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Jima is a fast and intense side-action game. Takahashi can run, jump and sometimes use a skateboard to whirl through a stage. But players must always keep an eye on Takahashi's energy bar hence his life always hangs on a thread. His energy is continuously flowing away from him and he must pick fruits and vegetables to stay alive. Giant eggs are spreaded, and sometimes hidden, along the way and Takahashi can crack them opened to release new weapons and other items such as the boomerang, the spear, the healthy bottle of milk or the evil Eggplant which will drain him dry. The game counts six islands (each with four stages) and Takahashi will express his gratitude by doing a little and always different dance at the end of each one of them.
