Nintendo Adventure Book 4 - Koopa Capers

Nintendo Adventure Book 4 - Koopa Capers




Koopa Capers was written by Bill McCay and was the fourth of twelve in the Nintendo Adventure Books series - first published on 17th October 1991 by Mammoth Books in the U.K and by Simon & Schuster, a division of Pocket Books in the U.S.


Plot Synopsis

Koopa Kid Kidnapped! Luigi to the Rescue?

Wendy O. Koopa has disappeared and an embarrassed King Bowser asks the Super Mario Bros. to find her. Experienced princess-rescuer Luigi reluctantly agrees. But all is not as it seems. Can Luigi trust Bowser and his creepy creatures-or does the treacherous turtle have a secret scheme up his shell?

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