The world's greatest secret agent, Danger Mouse, and his assistant, Penfold, are on a top secret mission.


The world's leaders are going bananas, as a mysterious Pi-beam zaps them. The source of the beam has been traced to a spot deep in the Black Forest.


Danger Mouse and Penfold have found their way into an old Chateau, but have fallen into a fiendish trap.


Now you, as Danger Mouse, must find and destroy the Pi-beam machine, before it makes mince-meat of the world's leaders.
