Kid Kool and the Quest for the Seven Wonder Herbs, known in Japan as Kakefu Kun no Jump Tengoku: Speed Jigoku (カケフ君のジャンプ天国 スピード地獄, Kakefu Kun no Janpu Tengoku: Supīdo Jigoku?), is a video game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988 by Vic Tokai. It is a platform game akin to the Mario series. There is also a small red creature, "Wicky," that the player can carry, which will eliminate enemies when thrown. The main character is on a quest to obtain seven herbs needed to help cure a king from an illness. The game will gradually progress from "day" to "night" modes as a timer counts down. The game must be completed in three of these "days". Each "day" relates to one hour in play time. There are two endings to the game. If the player completes the game after three hours, the player arrives at the castle and finds the king dead from his illness. The screen will then display the message "Presented by Vic Tokai". If the player completes the game in under three hours, the king will be cured. The player is then asked "You want a box of jewels and a princess, don't you?", to which the main character agrees, and the game then cycles through the ending credits. The Vic Tokai game Decap Attack (Magical Hat no Buttobi Tabo! Daibōken in Japan) are part of the same family of games, considered spiritual successors of Sega's Psycho Fox.
