Congo’s Caper is a side-scrolling platform action video game developed and published for the Super NES by Data East. The game was released in Japan in 1992.

Additional Information

The plot of Congo’s Caper involves a half-human, half-monkey boy named Congo, who sets out on a quest to rescue his girlfriend after she is abducted by a demon. The player controls Congo. Congo’s Caper is played across 35 levels that take place in multiple worlds, including a jungle, a mountain range, a pirate ship, a volcano, and a ghost town. The bosses include the demon, a T-Rex, a ninja, a pirate, a mad scientist, and a vampire.

If Congo is hit by an enemy, he reverts to his monkey form. If Congo is hit again, the player loses a life. If you were a monkey, just hangin’ out in the jungle with your chimp-chick, and a magic ruby fell out of the sky and zapped you both, turning you into half-humans, and a demon-kid swooped down and made off with your girl — what would you do?

You’d high-tail it after them and stop at nothing to save her, that’s what — ’cause you’re Congo, the money-turned-superkid, and only you can uphold the law of the jungle! But it’s more than a jungle out there — your search for little Congette will take you from ghost towns to pirate ships to ninja castles to the belly of a Tyrannosaurus. This is no time for a banana-break — you’d better get down to monkey business!
