Powermon is a Korean PC platformer released at an unknown date by ID Software (not to be confused with the id Software of Wolfenstein, Doom, Rage, Commander Keen and Quake fame). This game is quite notable compared to other bootlegs due to its use of pre-rendered 3D graphics.

Gameplay Edit

The player controls a Pikachu with a raccoon-like tail, and the goal of the game is to reach the house at the end of the stage all while avoiding enemies, which are designed to resemble Pokémon, albeit with slightly altered appearances.

Trivia Edit

  • Some PCs run the game extremely slow, not even reaching half of the speed it is supposed to run at. Video of how the game should play can be seen here.
  • It has been revealed that Powermon received sequels which are only available in Korea.
