Every day this week, I’ll be looking back at classic Nintendo Entertainment System games released originally during the month of June.
The Adventures of Bayou Billy, developed and published by Konami, was released in June of 1989 in the United States for the NES.
The player controls the titular character in his quest to rescue his girlfriend Annabelle from the grasp of the crooked Godfather Gordon. The game features a variety of gameplay styles: side-scrolling beat-’em-up stages, driving combat stages, and shooting stages. Billy must battle thugs, ninjas, and even alligators in his quest.
The Adventures of Bayou Billy was originally released as Mad City in Japan. The North American version is actually more difficult than the original Japanese released.
