The Story of Toki is of a warrior who lived peacefully in the jungle with his sweetheart Miho. Appearing out of nowhere, the terrifying voodoo sorcerer Vookimedlo and heinous demon Bashtar kidnap Miho and turn the poor Toki into a chimpanzee!
The former warrior now must go on ultimate quest to save his sweetheart. He must now accept his new form and adopt his powerful jaw to spit strange projectiles at his enemies instead of traditional weapons designed for the warriors.
In his adventure, Toki finds objects that aid in his quest to save his sweetheart. The items are from a football helmet to a pair of flippers and snorkel.
