This game is not hard hitting and it isn't intense, but it does have some addictive play techniques. Spanky is also a game that younger players will be able to get into while giving more advanced gamers plenty to interact with. The overall concept does wear thin after awhile, but all in all Spanky is a nice title.

Although Spanky looks like it is meant for kids (it is) it does require some technique to get through the levels. As such, parents will like this cart also and it's a good game where the whole family can play. Anyway, how can anything endorsed by Archie be bad?

This is a cute game that is definitely geared for a younger crowd. While the graphics aren't anything to shout about, they do look cartoonish, which is cool. While this is a kids' game on the surface, there is a surprising amount of game play. If you liked Mario and Bubble Bobble, this one is for you.

While the Super NES seems like a system only adults and teenagers can enjoy, even children can find a game to suit them nowadays. Spanky's Quest is a family game that any kid (or big kid) can enjoy. It isn't mind-boggling in any respect, but just a good, solid game. The music could use a little variety, though.

Spanky's Quest is a story about a mischievous little monkey that needs to find its way home! Only by collecting keys to exit levels can it possibly hope to return home!

In Spanky's Quest, Spanky must pass through 50 levels of mayhem! The mission begins in the Grasslands! These 10 levels should provide you with adequate preparation for what is to come. The enemies are weak and it is pretty straight forward! At the end, you meet up with your first boss, a killer apple!

Stage two takes place in San Francisco. The enemies get a little tougher, but Spanky is a determined little monkey! It must fight past a wide array of new enemies as well! Your next boss is a menacing pineapple out to smash you!

In Stage three, Spanky must locate keys, with a beautiful beach as the backdrop! Watch out when you destroy enemies because more will pop out of cans located on certain levels! The next gruesome boss is a nasty watermelon! It spits seeds and attempts to fall on you!

Spanky's Quest is a nice change of pace from the usual shooting games and one of the few good games for the younger player!

In Japan it's the Year of the Monkey and fittingly, Natsume is releasing a Super NES game starring a fuzzy-furred chimp named Spanky. Spanky's Quest is to undo the evil witch Morticia's spell, which has turned his homey jungle into a six-tower obstacle course. Spanky makes friends with a mysterious bubble-creature, which he can bounce up, down, and around the screen. Each time he head-butts it, the ball-thing grows larger. Pop it to unleash baseballs and volleyballs. Spanky's Quest is a bit like Bubble Bobble merged with Super Mario plus some Snow Brothers thrown in for good measure. It's cute and tough to boot. Don't go bananas playing it.

Natsume's newest game for the Super Famicom is Spanky's Quest. You are a mischievous monkey who must travel through many lands looking for keys to the exits. Look for the 1 ups and secret rooms scattered throughout the game. The bosses are large and very tough! Spanky's Quest will be available to U.S. players soon!

Spanky's Quest is a new adventure game for the Super NES. Spanky must travel through many stages collecting keys to travel further into the journey! Along the way, Spanky can destroy enemies by using his bubble attack that has five stages of power. There is a total of 5 different stages for Spanky to conquer, with many smaller levels in between! Spanky's Quest may look like a kiddie game, but it will challenge even the most demanding players! Spanky's Quest is more fun than a barrel of monkeys!

    Good game but you can not skip the extremely long intro which is annoying to say the least!.
