The Adventures of Bayou Billy (Buy on eBay) is set in New Orleans and finds the hero Billy West after spending a fun-filled day at the Jambalaya Jamboree with his girlfriend Annabelle. She is kidnapped by the gangster Gordon in retaliation for Bayou Billy smashing his Red Beans ‘n Rice Warehouse, which was the headquarters of an illegal smuggling network. Billy must battle his way through nine levels to defeat Gordon and rescue his girlfriend.
Interestingly, the game makes use of a variety of formats. Two levels make use of the NES Zapper light gun. In addition, there are side-scrolling action levels and driving levels. Although the game was heavily hyped by Konami, it was unpopular with players due to its high level of difficulty.
