Puss N Boots: Pero's Great Adventure is a platform shooter developed by Shouei System and published by Electro Brain for the NES in June 1990. The game is based on the Toei anime, Puss N Boots. Strangely, though the game is about a Japanese anime, it was only released in the USA, not Japan. This may have been due to the low quality of the game. In the game Count Gruemon sends Pero through time and space, and Pero must fight his way through the Wild West, Jolly Old London, and even outer space to get back to duel Gruemon.

I played this game because it was on a list of games that are easy to win, and I wanted to increase my total number of completed games.
