"Totally Rad" is a platformer NES (Nintendo Entertainment System)
game with a... truly interesting script. :) You take the role of
Jake, a teenager with an afro who's training to become a magician.
By pressing Start while in-game, you can call up Jake's spell list.
Then, select a spell icon, and press A to make it your active
spell. Finally, hold Up + B at any time to cast the spell. Amoung
his spells are healing spells, invicibility spells, elemental
attack spells, and some transformation spells. The three
transformation spells are:
Paw Icon - Jake becomes an anthropomorphic cat with electrical
Wing Icon - Jake becomes a bird-man wearing a helmet who can fly.
Fish Icon - Jake becomes a anthropomorphic fish person who can fire

"Yup. He thinks I have gnarly potential. And I think he's totally
Personally, I find the script hilarious and really adds to the
enjoyment of the game, but if you can't stand the script or don't
like Jake's appearance [namely, the afro. :), the Japanese version
of the game, "Magic John" instead features a young boy with a
winged cap, scarf and very short-shorts.
