      As far as games based on the Looney Tunes characters go, it’s pretty hit and miss. There are a lot of good games and a lot of bad games. Today, we’re going to take a look at one that I consider to at least be fairly decent. Indeed, it’s not perfect, bit it is entertaining for what it is.

      Story: 4/10

      The story is admittedly weak, even for NES standards. Bugs Bunny goes into the castle to rescue his sweetheart, Honey bunny, though we are never told how she got there and who put her in there to begin with.

      So that’s it. The story is very light, almost nonexistant, as there’s not even a beginning demo to


      outline the story for us, and we barely get any text at all. Then again, when has Looney Tunes ever needed anything resembling a stable plot or premise?

      Gameplay: 8/10

      Some people consider it repetitive, but I find it to be pretty engaging. You play as Bugs bunny, of course, and the idea of every floor is to gather up every single carrot without being killed by the other characters in the room, usually consisting of Daffy, Yosamete Sam, Wile E. Coyote, and several multi-colored Sylvesters. As soon as you grab the last carrot, Bugs shouts hooray and goes to the next floor. After every stage, you get an extra life and a password to continue the game.

      You can’t jump and you don’t start out with any attacks, so you mainly have to find your way around while avoiding the enemies. However, you do have several ways to defend yourself within a stage. There are multiple items you can use to help stay alive. By pushing crates and weights into your enemies, you’ll defeat them. You can also gather up boxing gloves and shoot them at enemies to defeat them. Lastly, there’s the invisible ink, an item that makes you completely invincible for a while. These items are plentiful in some areas, while in others you need to rely on your own wit to survive.

      It’s a pretty good balance of difficulty ...

      and the game goes on for around sixty levels, so you have plenty of time to experiment.

      Graphics: 6/10

      The graphics are just okay. The backgrounds change every now and then, but it only alternates every five levels or so, and there are only three of them.

      The characters move a little stiffly, but otherwise look like the characters they’re trying to represent. It’s fine, though I still wonder why they recolored Sylvester so many times.

      Music: 5/10

      The music is kind of tiring, especially in areas involving the pipes. All of the music is just a few loops, and you only really get two, with the more interesting one being the one in areas involving stairs and doors. The

      sound effects are minimal at best, nothing but a fuzzy bumping sound when you kill someone, but that’s about it.

      Overall: 6/10

      This is a decent game for people who are looking for a nice distraction. It’s really not the best game to have the Looney Tunes license, but it’s certainly not the worse. It has some nice gameplay that really does hold it over as a decent game for the time, and would be interesting, even without the novelty of Bugs Bunny. In fact, other major characters such as Roger Rabbit and Woody Woodpecker have been seen in other versions and sequels to the game. It’s a decent game, so I’d say give it a rent before investing in it.
