The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends is a game that is loosely based on the popular classic cartoon show of the same name. The player takes control of both Rocky and Bullwinkle, as they set out to try and get to Bullwinkle's relative's mansion to collect his inheritance. This is the first and probably the worst game developed by Radical Entertainment. It has so many issues and glitches, It doesn't feels like a finished game.

For a 90's video game on the NES, the music could have been a lot better. Though Paul Wilkinson isn't credited as a composer, his name does show up in the staff list and in the manual of the game and he confirmed he did the music for the game. He used Cakewalk to do the music and he said that this game was the first game he wrote a music driver for. The music driver is flawed. Certain sound effects can change the music's volume or wave types. The music does feature the Rocky and Bullwinkle theme which is a great improvement for its time considering how most TV to video game adaptations back then rarely had music from the original show or movie, except it's a very shortened version of the theme and since the first level is extremely hard to beat, you may hear it to the point of annoyance. Another song featured in the game is Thelonius Monk's Well You Needn't. It is unclear if the producer obtained the rights to the song or if the song was just snuck in the game, but it plays on the third level called 'Bomb Voyage or Rocky Seas Ahead!'.
