Bonze Adventure, known in Japan as Jigoku Meguri (地獄めぐり, lit. "Hell Round"), is a 1988 platform arcade game that was later ported for the TurboGrafx-16 by Taito. The player controls a Buddhist monk, Bonze Kackremboh. His weapons are Buddhist prayer beads, called "mala" beads, which can be powered up until they become almost as large as the player. The monk battles snakes, giant eyeballs, ghosts and other enemy creatures.
