Mr. Goemon (Mr.五右衛門 Misutā Goemon?) is a side-scrolling platform arcade game developed by Konami in 1986, based on Ishikawa Goemon, an outlaw in 16th-century Japan.[1][2][3]


Enemies charge and grab the character, ending his life unless the player jostles the control stick to break free. Later enemies also have projectile weapons that the player must dodge.[4] They are defeated by throwing a found object at them or hitting them with an always-equipped pipe. Jumping on the enemies' heads will push them down a level or off the screen entirely. Levels feature either boss battles or a pile of gold bars at the end, worth various points depending on the level.[5]


Microsoft released Mr. Goemon for its Game Room service on the Xbox 360 and Games for Windows - LIVE in June 2010. Hamster Corporation released it for download on the PlayStation 4 in Japan on December 25, 2014, under the "Arcade Archives" label.
