Released July 10, 1987- Booby Kids
Booby Kids hit the Japanese market on this day in 1987. For the Nintendo Famicom.
Moreover, Booby Kids is a port of an arcade game known as ” Kid no Hore Hore Daisakusen ” which was originally called Booby Kids. Sadly, the game was only produced and sold in the Japanese market, and no port was ever made available for the North American market. The game must have been at least somewhat popular in the region, as several years later a sequel was produced for the GameBoy. This one being known as Booby Boys which was also exclusive to the Japanese market.
The game is great fun. It’s a real shame that we didn’t see a release in the Western world.
