Nintendo Adventure Book 2 - Leaping Lizards

Nintendo Adventure Book 2 - Leaping Lizards




Leaping Lizards was written by Clyde Bosco and was the second of twelve in the Nintendo Adventure Books series - first published on 17th October 1991 by Mammoth Books in the United Kingdom and by Simon & Schuster, a division of Pocket Books in the U.S.


Plot Synopsis

The Mushroom Kingdom is Hopping Mad

When His Royal Highness is turned into a rabbit by the devious Morton Koopa Jr., only one plumber can save him. Luigi leaps into action to save the King from a life of hopelessly hopping-and almost becomes a Koopa casualty himself!

As in all Nintendo Adventure Books, you control the action. Only you can make the choices that allow Luigi to beat Morton and the rest of the Koopa Kids. Help him crack codes, solve puzzles, conquer mazes, and subdue enemies. You and Luigi must outwit the Koopas at their own game-or go down in final defeat!
