Bonk 3: Bonk's Big Adventure (PC-原人3 PC-Genjin 3?) is an action video game developed by Red Company and published for the TurboGrafx-16 in 1993, in the Bonk video game series. It was ported to the TurboDuo by Hudson Soft in 1994, with a new cover illustration by Marc Ericksen. It was released for the Wii Virtual Console in Europe on August 31, 2007 and in North America on September 3, 2007. It was also released in Japan on the PlayStation Store on January 20, 2010 and on the Wii U Virtual Console June 25, 2014.

Bonk 3: Bonk's Big Adventure brought the series many new gameplay elements, including candies that made the player shrink and grow, and cooperative multiplayer. The story is similar to that of the other Bonk games, putting the player character up against Evil King Drool and many new enemies in the Dinosaur Kingdom.

Reception[edit]

Reviewing the TurboDuo version, GamePro praised Bonk's variety of abilities, the cartoony graphics, and the CD audio, but criticized the pacing and controls and stated that it offers too little new content to be worthwhile to gamers who had already played the cartridge version.[1]
