Tiny Toon Adventures , developed by NewKidCo in association with TGI Studios, will have you rolling in the floor and dying of laughter as Buster Bunny, Bab’s Bunny, and Plucky Duck lead you on their newest, wackiest, fun-filled adventure yet: "The Great Beanstalk."
No matter what age you are, this game has all the right elements to have you cracking your sides for days to come.
The object of the game is to guide Buster Bunny and Plucky Duck through nine wacky fairy tale adventures to earn three keys for the Giant’s Castle at the top of the beanstalk. Once the keys are collected you’ll be able to retrieve the chicken that lays the golden eggs, a bag full of gold, and a magical flying harp to go on and win the game.
During each fairy tale Bab’s Bunny broadcasts hints over a magic intercom to Buster and Plucky to help them find three pieces that will make up one complete key. Since the magic intercom appears on the screen most of the game, if you forget the hint, simply click it to hear what crafty clue Bab’s Bunny gave last. It would seem that with clear and simple objectives along with helpful hints from your pal Bab’s, that your road for success was pretty much paved for you.
As you make your way up the beanstalk you’re gonna have to watch out for dropping anvils, exploding bombs and other looney hazards that can knock you off your beanstalk. It’s important to keep an eye out for buttons inserted into the giant beanstalk. The buttons are always located by a launch pad. You’ll have to step on the button, and then quickly jump onto the launch pad and get ready to be launched to the next level of the stalk. Whenever you’re knocked off the Great Beanstalk you’ll lose the last key piece you’ve obtained.
Graphics are superb and will grab you, from the jumps with really smooth animation and highly detailed backgrounds. New Kid Company did an excellent job of making the gamer feel like they’re actually inside the cartoon. Playing this game is the same as tuning into the television series on Saturday morning. The only difference is you’re the master animator.
Another round of applause goes out to TGI Studios for excellent sounds and sound effects. Wise cracks and practical jokes from Buster, Plucky, and the rest of the looney tunes cast will keep you giggling through most the fairy tales.
Though gameplay is a bit simple for an experienced gamer, I think it’s perfect for young gamers along with the added plus of the controls being pretty basic, only requiring the use of the directional pad and two buttons.
Overall, I must say I am surprisingly impressed with this Looney toons gamepak. I had loads of fun playing it and it brought back some old childhood memories. I guess you could say this games strong enough for an adult, but made for children.
I give this game 4 out of 5 possible GIN gems because it’s just a lot of fun to play.
