  • This Arcade Video game was published 37 years ago:

    Naughty Boy © 1982 Jaleco.

    A maze/shooting game.

    On this fun game the player controls a naughty boy who goes through the forest and must defend himself throwing rocks at monsters to destroy them. The longer you hold down the fire button, the farther your character can throw rocks. The boy must avoid a variety of monsters and obstacles while attempting to make it to the top of each level and proceed on to the next. There are a number of flags at the top of each level on a fortress that must be destroyed in order to proceed to next level.

    Occasionally, there is a bonus round where your character fly back and forth at the top of the screen in a hot-air balloon in an attempt to drop rocks down upon a big monster that is running at the bottom of the screen to hit directly over his head. There is a fuel gauge that determines when the bonus round will end.

    TRIVIA
    Naughty Boy was released in March 1982.

    This is the first game manufactured by Jaleco Co., Ltd.

    Licensed to Cinematronics for US manufacture and distribution (June 1982).

    The bootlegs of this game made it into the arcades before the official release did.

    Jaleco Co., Ltd. was established in 1972 as producer and developer of arcade game equipment. In 2001, Hong Kong based company PCCW acquired Jaleco. So, they changed their name to 'PCCW-Japan'. They returned to their original name in 2004. However, their games flopped. All of their video game business was transfered to game yarou in January 2009.

    Kim French holds the official record for this game with 5,345,060 points.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • It is much easier to rack up a high score in the Jaleco version of this game (versus the Cinematronics version). On the Jaleco version, the Naughty Boy can sit between the two fences on the first level (left hand side) and kill monsters with ease, racking up points. The Cinematronics version eliminates this exploit by removing a section of the fence.
    • Once you have bombed an enemy and they are stunned, bomb them again to earn more points and cause them do disappear for a bit.
    • Be sure to bomb the purple question marks - they grant the Naughty Boy invulnerability for a short period.
    • Keep in mind that you can vary the distance of the Naughty Boy's projectiles - the longer you hold down the button, the further the projectiles go.
