Bonze Adventure, known in Japan as Jigoku Meguri (地獄めぐり lit. "Hell Round" ), is a 1988 platform arcade game that was later ported for the TurboGrafx-16 by Taito. The player controls a Buddhist monk, Bonze Kackremboh. His weapons are Buddhist prayer beads, called "mala" beads, which can be powered up until they become almost as large as the player. The monk battles snakes, giant eyeballs, ghosts and other enemy creatures.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Emma, the lord of the underworld mentioned in the introduction screen, is Emma-O, the Japanese Buddhist god of the Underworld. Traditionally, Emma-O keeps track of a mortal's life and decides the punishment of those sent to the Underworld in accordance with Buddhist law.
