... the PC Engine version of Jigoku Meguri (aka Hell Explorer or Bonze Adventure, depending on where you live).
Astute readers will recall that I discussed the change of heart I had in regards to this Taito platformer in this recent "Second Chances" post.
One thing I think I failed to mention in that post is that the PC Engine port of Jigoku Meguri admirably follows in the footsteps of a number of other Taito-published HuCards--including Don Doko Don, KiKi KaiKai, Mizubaku Daibouken and The New Zealand Story--as spot-on arcade conversions.
Another thing Jigoku Meguri shares with those games: It has a pretty slick instruction manual. (Expect to see it appear in an upcoming "Manual Stimulation" post.)
As is the case with most of these "12 Games of Christmas" posts, a few additional photos of this game can be found in my Flickr photostream.
