Dennis the Menace is a licensed platformer from Ocean Software based on the 1993 movie of the same name. The movie itself is based on the Hank Ketcham syndicated comic strip of a tearaway child, his family and friends and his irascible elderly neighbor Mr. Wilson whom Dennis is constantly tormenting. In Europe the game (and movie) is known as Dennis to help keep it separate from the UK property named Dennis the Menace, the mascot of The Beano.
The game is a straightforward platformer. Dennis wanders around a number of locations, including a forest and Mr Wilson's house. He has a limited amount of time to recover Mr. Wilson's stolen coin collection and reach the next stage. His end goal is to defeat Switchblade Sam, the antagonist of the movie, and rescue his friends Joey and Margaret.
The game was released on the Super Nintendo and Game Boy in the US and Europe. There are exclusively European Amiga releases as well.
