Actually it's an arcade game.
Ported to many consoles including PC, NES, and Mega Drive.



Captain N has many characters from third party games (Mega Man, Castlevania) so it's no wonder if other third party game characters show up as long as the franchise owner allowed it.


I know not many people liked Captain N due to it's "inaccuracies" to the games they were based on, but if you take Captain N as a parody of those games it's a rather enjoyable show... for a Nintendo TV show.

Reminds me of that game where you player as either a baby or a dad and stir up trouble for one another. Like eat batteries or drink Detox.

It may not age well but its enjoyable in its time.

It's a two-player versus game. One player plays as the father who must make sure the baby is safe while fulfilling out a list of babysitting chores and the other player plays as the baby who's sole objection is suicide by any means necessary, even if it means harassing your dad.

Return to Monkey Island | Gameplay Reveal Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3mxq44HhnU









Quote
It’s been many years since Guybrush Threepwood was last locked in a battle of wits with his nemesis, the zombie pirate LeChuck.
His true love, Elaine Marley, has turned her focus away from governing and Guybrush himself is adrift and unfulfilled, having never found the Secret of Monkey Island.
Hip, young pirate leaders led by Captain Madison have shuffled the old guard from power, Melee Island has taken a turn for the worse, and famed businessman Stan has been imprisoned for ‘marketing-related crimes’.
