Conker's Pocket Tales is an action video game developed and published by Rare and released on 8 June 1999 starring the Anthropomorphic squirrel Conker who initially appeared as a character in the Donkey Kong series spin-off Diddy Kong Racing. The game features a dual-format cartridge that serves as both a Game Boy and Game Boy Color game. The gameplay is presented from an overhead perspective where players control Conker the Squirrel. Unlike Conker's Bad Fur Day and Conker: Live & Reloaded, which were aimed at adult audiences, Conker's Pocket Tales is lighthearted and family friendly, and is designed to appeal to a general audience.


Conker has the ability to use a slingshot to defeat enemies. Like with many other main video game characters, Conker can walk and run. Conker is able to punch before he obtains the Slingshot. The player can pause the game and show the amount of slingshot ammo and presents. The player can also save the game.


Conker celebrates his birthday, but the Evil Acorn steals his presents and kidnaps Berri, his girlfriend. Conker's goal is to retrieve the presents and rescue Berri.
