Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure
by Konami Co., Ltd
Tiny Toon Adventures was a fun game I've played on my Sega Mega Drive/Genesis in the beginning of the 90s. Konami, which I am still a fan of, did a great job with this installment. Controlling Buster Bunny was fun and defeating Montana Max and saving Babs Bunny kept me on my couch for hours long. I liked the variety of levels in the game: there was a volcano, an undersea level, a forest, a ship with pirates

The Cartoony graphics fit right in to the gameplay. The characters are mostly all from the tv show, and you will recognize your favorites, like Calamity Coyote, Buster Bunny, and Roadrunner (a kiddie version). The backgrounds are great, and the game is very colorful. The variety of the stages, from the colorful forest scenery to the sandy deserts, is superb. The world map is very detailed and looks very good overall. The color and graphics really set the atmosphere, like in a dark cave, on a pirate ship, or in a piedmont area.
The sound is awesome! Most of it (if you watch Tiny Toons) you will recognize it, like the Tiny Toons theme song. The music (like the graphics) helps the atmosphere and doesn't get boring quickly. The first few stages play the classic Tiny Toon theme. When you fight bosses or after a boss fight the music is especially great then and never gets old. The music was partially from the cartoon, and partially made new. It works well with each stage, although sometimes it is repeated a lot, it is still good no matter how many times it is used. You don't tire of hearing it. Overall, great music worthy of a great game!
Despite how hard this game is, I think it is really fun. You have to play it for a while to get the hang of it. After you get the hang of it, though, it starts to get really neat. Some of the levels are real interesting, and you want to open each new one as you go along. This game always pulls you back to it for more.
