Bonk 3: Bonk's Big Adventure (TG-16 / TurboGrafx-16)

Game Profile

The hard-headed hero is back for more side-scrolling action in the third installment of the popular Bonk series. It's up to Bonk once again to thwart the plans of the relentless evil King Drool.

There are seven rounds scattered throughout the Dinosaur Kingdom, each one filled with fun contraptions and comical enemies. Grab a Flower Copter or exchange 16 Smileys at the end of each round to play up to eight different bonus stages. Or you can change the size of Bonk by grabbing the new red or blue candy items.

Depending on the situation, you can change your size to bonk your way through a dead end or to get a hard-to-reach item. And if that's not enough, you can grab a friend and put your heads together to defeat King Drool in the new two-player mode.

The hard-headed hero is back for more side-scrolling action in the third installment of the popular Bonk series.

Bonk 3 was the final game in the original trilogy of Bonk games. As it was the last game, Hudson seemingly decided they had to cram as much into it as they could in order to make it the best game yet - They succeeded.First off, pretty much everything from...

I wonder if the SNES and NES Bonk games will make it to the Wii too. Or are they ports of the TG-16 games? If we don't see them, then Bonk will never be seen again after this game. A good thing?



Colette said:

I love Bonk! I liked the 2nd better than 1st. When is the 3rd going to be offered on the Wii? I dont see it there yet?



SKTTR said:

If there is part 1 and 2 and even the Air Zonk (with Bonk) then of course there should be part 3.

And I hope they even bring Super B.C. Kid (SNES-Bonk).



beefy said:

wow. the parts where bonk gets bigger or smaller looks really similar to new super mario bros.



Ian said:

Great game! but I hoping to see Super Bonk in the Future, in my opinion Super Bonk is the best game in it's series. Here's me with my Fingers crossed.



michinmuri said:

Great game. I had the super CD version back in the day, and the music was great and so was the game play. I hope they bring some of the CD and Super CD games to the Wii soon.



Corbs said:

I too would love to see the SNES Super Bonk game. I love it! But Bonk III should tide us over until then. : )



Mr.cow said:

my buddy just got it and the co-op is really fun the controls are a little funny but it is still a great game the grafics are really good for the TurboGrafx-16 and it is a great thing to play co-op with tottaly awsome



retrogamer88 said:

So fun! I love all of the exploring. The difficulty is just right. Hard, but not insanely hard.



Paperfox said:

Hmm... Which game do you guys think is the best in the series? I'm not that wealthy, so I'd prefer to get the best game of the three...



Dazza said:

Emily - If I was only going to get one I would be tempted to get "Bonk 3" first



antdickens said:

Hmm... I've never actually played this series of games, I really need to get some more TG16 games!



ToadTheMushroom said:

This has to be the best Co-Op game for VC! It's a really great game, EVERYONE needs to download this wounderfull classic!



Sarato said:

This game wasn't that great as i expected. It was fun but the Co-op mode really sucked and the bosses where all too easy. The music though is good. I give it a 2 or a weak 3.



RocketBird said:

How does this game stack up to Super Bonk on SNES? I have that one on cartridge but don't play it that often...



Manicfatty said:

A very fitting end to the series on the TG16, and an excellent co-op platformer. Technically polished, with tweaked gameplay. the changes they made make it feel like someone was actually listening to gamers complaints from the first 2 games. Kudos for that effort, regardless of the inspiration.



Rossi said:

Yet again i have to admit with Drake: "Like Bonk's Revenge improved on Bonk's Adventure, Bonk 3 improves on Bonk's Revenge and ends up being possibly the best game in the original trilogy." I really enjoyed playing this game, some many fun things to do i highly recomend it..!



KeeperBvK said:

Swing up the poles and then start pounding him from above. He should go down after a while.



G-MAN said:

You're wrong MasterMario( which is a really gay nickname) this is by far the best of the 3. Sure it might be the easiest but bonk 2 was really hard to beat the game without starting over. PLus this game has more power-ups and 2 player co-op, this game is by far the best in the series.



Gravitywheel said:

Is this the CD version or not? That version was significantly better both graphically and sonically, IMO.



Corbs said:

This is the Hucard version, not the very rare CD version. Maybe at some point Hudson will release the CD version of the game.
