Conker's Pocket Tales is a kid-friendly Game Boy Color video game developed by Rare with Game Boy support. It is the second game to feature Conker, the first being Diddy Kong Racing. Unlike its successor Conker's Bad Fur Day, Conker's Pocket Tales appeal was meant to be spread to a younger audience as well.
The game starts out with Conker and Berri at Conker's birthday party, but just as he is about to blow out the candles on his cake, his friend Berri is kidnapped by the Evil Acorn. The rest of the game is Conker solving puzzles and finding items to assist him on his journey.
The game ends when Conker rescues Berri from the Catacombs, getting his presents back along the way, and the Evil Acorn getting blasted out of the atmosphere by his own bomb, which was planted in said Catacombs. Conker, Berri, and all of the friends that Conker made throughout his quest gather together for a new birthday party for Conker, and Conker and Berri appear to live happily ever after, in direct contrast to Conker's Bad Fur Day.
The game is lighthearted in nature, and designed to appeal to younger gamers. It was intended to serve as a precursor to the planned Nintendo 64 title Twelve Tales: Conker 64, however it ultimately ended up being massively re-tooled into Conker's Bad Fur Day, an "adult" title featuring profanity, graphic violence and toliet humor. Conker's Pocket Tales can thus be seen as somewhat of an oddity in the Conker series, as it represents an intended direction for the series which has since been abandoned. However, it's a prequel to that game.
