Andy and his sister are out gathering things when their uncle informs them that the evil Dr. Teklov is building a secret weapon in his space fortress. Not standing for this, Andy sets out to stop him, fighting his minions along the way.
Venture Kid contains examples of:
- Giant Spider: One of the enemy types Andy faces is blue spiders bigger than Andy.
- Multiple Endings: The game has a regular ending, and a True Ending that can be unlocked by collecting all eight treasures in each level.
- Retraux: The game is clearly based on the 8-bit Classic Mega Man games.
- Sinister Scythe: The Grim Reaper Boss Battle wields a scythe against Andy.
