Pow Pow’s Great Adventure is a 3D platformer containing hand-drawn graphics with classic 2D gameplay. Pow Pow is a young man who is thrown into a strange world with his girlfriend Mai Mei. However, it turns out Mai Mei and Pow Pow wind up at the opposite ends of the world. They both must traverse through various environments and defeat many enemies to meet up with each other.
While Pow Pow is the playable character, Mai Mei is no damsel in distress. Pow Pow must communicate with Mai Mei through a PDA device as they work together to leave the strange world they found themselves in.
