Super Dog Booby: Akachan Daibōken no Maki (スーパードッグブービー 赤ちゃん大ぼうけんの巻 Super Dog Booby: Baby Adventure Volume[1]) is a cancelled comic book-style platform action game that was in development in 1991 by Jaleco for the Famicom.

Plot[edit | edit source]

When Alfred's mother dozed off asleep, baby Alfred has hit the streets. To protect him, Booby must battle menacing gangs and bulldogs. Booby's mission is to lead Alfred to a safe place.

Alfred doesn't know where he is going, he is on an exciting adventure.[2]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The player would use Booby's super abilities to help Alfred. When an enemy is in the player's way, they would use the A button to kick. The player would come across a gang wielding large nets or faced against a tough-looking bulldog, Booby would bravely take a fighting stance.

Preview[edit | edit source]

The game was initially planned to be released in May of 1991; however, it was delayed until June and then later pushed to one more month before it was cancelled for unknown reasons.

It was also shown in a playable form at Famicom Space World from April 24th to May 6th, 1991[3][4], advertised during the year, and was offered as a prize in a contest by a Japanese magazine.[5]

No prototypes or any other information on the game have resurfaced.
