The Adventures of Captain Comic is an action-platforming game developed for PC by Michael Denio as shareware in 1988 and later ported to the Nintendo Entertainment System by Color Dreams in 1989. The game takes place on the planet Tambi, where Captain Comic is sent to recover three important treasures.
The game features non-linear gameplay, with multiple paths open to the player from the start of the game. Captain Comic's main attack is hurling fireballs at enemies, the effect of which are increased by collecting cans of "Blastola Cola"; the more cans you collect, the more fireballs you throw per shot.
Nintendo Entertainment System port
Michael Denio worked with the company Color Dreams on the NES port of the game, and it was released as an unlicensed title for the system. Although featuring a visual upgrade, the port is widely sonsidered one of the worst NES games of all time as it was plagued by many glitches that were a major hindrance to the player and often resulted in the player failing.
A pirated version for the SAM Coupé was also released, under the title Pioneer Xenia. A sequel, Captain Comic II: Fractured Reality followed in 1990.
