Bobby's World is an unreleased Super Game Boy enhanced platformer based on the Howie Mandel cartoon of the same name.

The game was first announced as Home Alone 2: Kevin's Dream in 1994. Volume 67 (Dec 94) of Nintendo Power briefly mentioned the change, noting "Now with a change of license and a Super Game Boy dash of color, it looks better and plays the same. Too bad." Both versions of the game were among the games in the Game Boy (Color) leak in September 2020.

Unused Level

Both Kevin's Dream and Bobby's World contain a cut sixth level which takes place in an arcade and has three sections based on Space Invaders ("Marv's Revenge"), Pac-Man ("Doofus") and Donkey Kong (Donkey Cow). Using the Game Genie code 03F-FAD-E62 (for Bobby's World) or 03C-97D-E62 (for Kevin's Dream) starts the game at the cut level. Interestingly, a Vidpro card for Kevin's Dream which shows what would have been the back of the game box mentions a level taking place "inside his favorite video games".

Gameplay & Level Differences

  • Bobby is slightly shorter than Kevin, which affects the height at which the projectile is thrown. This is most noticeable in the final boss where Kevin can hit the eye in the middle just by standing next to the boss, while Bobby needs to attack mid-air.
  • The second moving platform in the fourth level moves clockwise in Kevin's Dream and counter-clockwise in Bobby's World.

The sign at the end of the second level was changed from Harry D Clown to Derek D Clown
