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>

An Honest Review
2 April 2017 | by generationofswineSee all my reviews

When I was growing up there were two types of kids on the block. The kids that whipped the controller around--like everyone's sisters--when they played and the cool kids.

We were playing with power and Nintendo ruled.

Nintendo and cartoons were a necessary thing when you grew up in Chicago, the streets weren't all that safe and the weather actively tried to kill you.

Freeze you to death in the winter and kill you with heat stroke and humidity in the summer. That's the Chicago way, that's how you beat Capone.

And really you are indoor kids until you get old enough to avoid bad men.

So Nintendo and cartoons ruled and this had both. It had characters from our favorite games facing off against one another in the fantasy world where people got pulled into their Nintendo and into a land of adventure.

And it was realistic because, even though you could go outside, there was still a chance you'd get shot. So we could relate to it...even in the safe white Middle-Class parts of Chicago
