Congo's Caper, known in Japan as Tatakae Genshijin 2: Rookie no Bōken (戦え原始人2 ルーキーの冒険 Tatakae Genshijin 2: Rūkī no Bōken?), is a side-scrolling platform action video game developed and published for the Super NES by Data East. The game was released in Japan in 1992. A North American version was released in May 1993.
The plot of Congo's Caper involves a half-human, half-monkey boy named Congo, who sets out on a quest to rescue his girlfriend after she is abducted by a demon. The player controls Congo. Congo's Caper is played across 35 levels that take place in multiple worlds, including a jungle, a mountain range, a pirate ship, a volcano, and a ghost town. The bosses include the demon, a T-Rex, a ninja, a pirate, a mad scientist, and a vampire. If Congo is hit by an enemy, he reverts to his monkey form. If Congo is hit again, the player loses a life.
Nintendo Power praised the game's graphics, controls, password feature, and variety of levels, but wrote, "The game doesn't really do anything that Super Mario World and countless other games have done just as well." AllGame rated Congo's Caper three and a half stars out of five.
