Bonk’s Revenge (1991)


The sequel to Bonk’s Adventure is a game that doesn’t bring any big alterations, but changes things on a very small scale. Somehow the controls seem a tick better, the level design a tick more compelling, the bosses much more distinct, which all adds up to a game that is, by a small margin, more enjoyable than it’s predecessor.

Things I still don’t like: the levels lack a unique theme, they all have some distinct touches here and there, but in comparison with other games, they still feel like too many elements of earlier levels and even the first game are recycled again and again without adding substantially new content to make it stand out.
