About The Game

Headbutt your way to victory!

An old-school side-scrolling action game. Gameplay is simple: just headbutt your enemies as you progress through each stage! You receive damage when you get hit by an enemy or when you touch something hazardous. Try to keep Bonk from losing any lives. Chow down on meat you find along the way to power up Bonk by 2 levels.

The game is loaded with bonus games and hidden stages. And, just like any great action game, there are big boss battles.
