Congo's Caper is the sequel to Joe & Mac...without Joe & Mac.
As implied above, the Japanese version is branded as a sequel to Joe & Mac (Tatakae Genshijin or "Fighting Cavemen" being the first game's Japanese subtitle), even though it has almost nothing in common with the first game aside from the caveman theme. The international version drops this connection and goes for an original title instead, adding a cute little monkey to the logo in the process. This caused the third game in the series, which actually starred Joe & Mac (and whose Japanese subtitle "Of Course the Main Characters are Joe & Mac" cheekily references their absence from this game) to be renamed Joe & Mac 2 in the west.
In addition, the copyright year was bumped up, "DATAEAST" was corrected to "DATA EAST" and the option to start a 2 player game was added to the menu.
