Your goal? To recover every last ingot of Bungeling booty. You'll be running, jumping, and climbing heroically, solving perplexing puzzles, and drilling passageways through stone floors and barriers using your laser drill pistol.

You'll need more than fleet feet and good looks to get through this mission alive. You'll need your quick wits and brains!
