Player's Review

This platformer was originally planned to be released on the Japan-only Satellaview addon, but Visit (the original developers) decided to cancel the release due to the console's end of cycle and also because of the 3D consoles that were a new thing back then. Jaleco eventually took the game's code and modified it to add a different HUD and new levels, which was released on the PS1 as Punky Skunk.

The prototype was leaked as a demo with only 3 playable levels, until someone who goes by the name of MasterF0x found out there were more stuff and hacked the leaked ROM to be fully playable from start to finish. Of course this caught the attention of Psyklax and his team, who then translated the text added into the game to English. The only thing that seems to not work is the Password system, since you can get your code after each world but the title screen lacks of an option to use it.

What should I say about the game itself? I have to summarize everything in two words: PRETTY BEATABLE. The music, graphics, level structure and difficulty are more than decent for a SNES game that unfortunately never saw the light, at least not during the console's life cycle.
