Competition: 10 copies of Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? up for grabs

Ah, the good old days of gaming. Back in the early-to-mid 1990s it was all 2D platformers with precipitous learning curves, crazy Japanese styling, memorable characters and a zany sense of humour. They don't make them like that any more. Or do they?

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? is the sort of quirky, brilliantly playable experience we used to see a lot of, but which has become sadly scarce in these days of casual gaming and fitness simulations.

But what exactly are prinnies? Here goes: they're penguins with peg legs and little bat-wings. Oh, and they have the habit of exploding. Yep, it's all a bit bonkers.

When the ultimate dessert disappears from Etna's castle, her team of prinnies takes the blame. To avoid execution, the prinnies must track down a replacement dessert. You take control of a single brave prinny (named, would you believe it, Prinny) as you set out find a suitable pud and save your fellow... things.

What ensues is a wonderfully inventive 2D adventure where you have leap and fight your way through fiery fortresses and icy watchtowers, each culminating in some of the freshest boss battles you'll ever see on your PSP.

Now Koei is giving away 10 copies of Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? along with 10 limited edition Prinny PSP cases. To be in with a chance of winning one of each, just answer the following question:

What is Prinny’s catchphrase saying? A – Cowabunga!
B – Rad!
C – Dood!
