Conker’s Pocket Tales is an platform video game developed and published by Rare and released on June 8, 1999 for the Game Boy Color. The cartridge is dual-format, allowing it to also run on the original Game Boy with some gameplay differences. The game is the first in a series to star Conker the Squirrel after he initially appeared as a playable character in Diddy Kong Racing for the Nintendo 64. The game is also the last to feature Conker in a lighthearted and family friendly game, whereas his later games (Conker’s Bad Fur Day and Conker: Live & Reloaded) would contrastingly be adult-oriented.

Gameplay

Conker has the ability to use a slingshot to defeat enemies; before obtaining the slingshot, he can punch. Conker can walk, run, and jump. When in the air, he can also use a ground-pounding attack that can hit buttons to solve puzzles. Puzzles are also solved by pushing blocks into grooves in the floor.

The game is unique in that it can be played on both Game Boy and Game Boy Color; however, the layout and some events in the game are different depending on the console it is played on. The game can be paused and saved anywhere when played on a Game Boy Color or later model, but when played on a non-color Game Boy can only be saved at specific save points.

Plot

Conker celebrates his birthday, but the Evil Acorn steals his presents and kidnaps Berri, his girlfriend. Conker’s goal is to retrieve the presents and rescue Berri.
