Storyline

Kevin Keene, a teenager from Northridge, California, is brought to another universe known as Videoland, along with his dog, Duke, to defeat the evil villainess, Mother Brain. Mother Brain is trying to conquer Videoland. Kevin has been brought to defeat her, as foretold in an Ancient Prophecy. Kevin is given the title "Captain N: The Game Master". He and Duke join the N Team, which consists of Princess Lana (the Ruler of Videoland), Simon Belmont (the hero from Castlevania), Mega Man, Kid Icarus, and Gameboy (a giant supercomputer). The N Team goes up against the evil Mother Brain (the villain from Metroid) and her minions, King Hippo (Punch-Out), the Eggplant Wizard (Kid Icarus), and Dr. Wily (Mega Man). These forces of good and evil go up against each other and often find themselves in comical, hilarious situations. Written by Mark Moore <kevinkeene@geocities.com>

Goofs

The energy on Kevin's Power Pad is the source of many errors. In the first few episodes, extra care is taken in showing how much energy he has remaining, and a green lit square vanishes when a "unit" of power is used up, or so we are led to believe. In subsequent episodes (in most cases), energy NEVER disappears from the meter, yet he ends up running out of power despite this. Another error stemming from this is in Metroid Sweet Metroid when Kevin goes to use it to paint the wall. His power is dead, yet one unit APPEARS on it when he uses it. See more »

User Reviews

Not too bad.
23 June 1999 | by (Elkhart, IN) – See all my reviews

For a show created to sell video games, this wasn't too bad. Kevin got live every video game fans dream and meet the character he played and travel to there worlds. While the episodes were meant to be silly most of the time, they did have some really good moments. Like when Mother Brain transported Kevin's school to Videoland or when Princess Launa found her father. Plus, Simon Belmont was great comic relief.
