What if Bonk from Bonk’s Adventure was in a zany side scrolling shooter? Bonk x Zany = ZONK! This is Air Zonk, also known in Japan as “PC Genjin Series PC Denjin” on the PC Engine, but it’s essentially the same game other than some minor localization of supporting text. Essentially if you liked the comic sensibility of Bonk’s Adventure or Bonk’s Revenge, this was and IS the next logical step, but unfortunately it comes at a STEEP price given it was a late release in the U.S. — $115 loose and $230 complete!
If you get the Japanese version you MIGHT be able to get a complete copy for what the loose version goes for in North America if you’re lucky. Better option? It’s on TurboGrafx Mini for less than either one! Subscribe to Mistah MegaManFan for new episodes of The PC Engine Files every Tuesday at 8 PM ET. Like, share and comment to help the channel grow.
