According to the game's instruction manual, the player controls a skateboarding hero whose girlfriend, Bunny, has been kidnapped by Demon Dan. (the name is most likely a reference to Dan Burke, one of the artists at Color Dreams) An introduction screen shows a shackled Bunny pleading for the player's help. In the game, the hero must use his skateboard and any objects he finds, such as balloons, frogs, bombs, and bottles, to defeat ninja, clowns, Elvis impersonators and disgruntled dock workers before finally confronting the villainous Demon Dan. The game was made somewhat infamous because in between levels the girlfriend's clothes "rot" away until by the end of the game she is left in nothing but her underwear. Menace Beach also rereleased in its original form as part of the Maxivision 15-in-1 multicart.
Miss Peach World 1: Super LA Cop
Miss Peach World 1: Super LA Cop is a hack of Menace Beach credited to Dan Burke (although it's unknown whether he actually had a role in development) and released by Hacker International in 1991. In this hack, the game was translated to Japanese and Bunny was replaced with pornography.
Sunday Funday is a 3-in-1 multicart released by Wisdom Tree in 1995 and it was the last game produced by them. (and the last game to have been released for the NES in North America) This hack replaces Bunny with a Sunday school teacher, and the ninja and Elvis impersonator enemies were also replaced. The other two options on the menu are Fish Fall, which is Free Fall (a prototype version) with Bible quotes added and an 8-bit rendition of The Ride by 4Him.
- Menace Beach originally had a Jet Ski bonus round which never made it to the final game. (look in the games GFX for me)
- Many of the characters in Menace Beach were based off of the folks at Color Dreams.
