Ganbare Goemon: Mononoke Dōchū Tobidase Nabe-Bugyō! is a Goemon game released for the Game Boy Color on December 16, 1999. It was published by Konami in Japan only.
The gameplay of Mononoke Dōchū Tobidase Nabe-Bugyō! is similar to the other RPGs in the series, in which the player controls the party from an overhead map and explores each area by getting quests and items in order to advance the main plot. Even though the player controls a party, combat is strictly one-on-one, as the game attempts to join the Pokémon craze with "dueling" combat between individual monsters. In addition, the player can capture and train defeated monsters, and even upgrade them or merge them with other creatures to obtain additional powers.
