Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble
Warner Bros' popular, human-sized rodent with an unquenchable appetite for carrots comes to the Genesis in Sega's latest release: Double Trouble. Playing as our gray, threetoed friend, you venture through different stages, attempting to complete the tasks at hand which change from level to level.
When you begin the game, you start at the Control Screen, which you use to get a clue as to what is expected of you in the next stage. This informative screen tells you what your goals are, but it does not tell you how to complete them.
The next step is to jump into the level called Duck Rabbit Duck and begin using your highly tuned skills as a rabbit-extraordinaire to tease Daffy into following you, so he will unknowingly spin all the signs to duck season instead of rabbit season. You have to keep just one step ahead of Daffy through the level so he doesn't hit you and cause you damage but yet get close enough so you don't lose him.
It takes a player with a delicate touch to coax the wild duck through the level to get your job done. After two stages of Daffy persuading, you advance to Bully for Bugs.
This level starts with Bugs in the classic bullfight arena where your only danger above ground is the horned beast. The goal in this stage is to use the bull's kicking ability to throw Bugs high into the air, so he can grab one of the reappearing floating dynamite charges to destroy the boarded-up holes in the ground that are meant to prevent entrance. Once access to the lower mazes is gained, you are expected to find parts that will allow you to construct a trap. As you find each piece, they will no longer be flashing in the arena where they are displayed. This informs the player what is still needed to complete the level. Surely, the thrill behind a title like this are the multiple stages that comprise a much larger grand scheme of things.
Later levels incorporate the same unique challenge but have added a twist that is all their own. In subsequent levels, you are required to ride on flying carpets or to lock up fierce lions by coordinating the use of switches among other daunting tasks. Another interesting feature is the way the level Bosses are destroyed.
Unlike other games where the Boss has to be attacked repeatedly to defeat "him, Bugs Bunny forces the player to beat him strategically. Also, instead of just seeing the Boss wither and disappear when you defeat him, you are transcended to a cinematic cartoon clip drawn in classic Warner Bros, style showing the Boss being defeated by our hero.
Bugs Bunny takes the standard for action games and goes one step further. This visually appealing title gives players a great opportunity to struggle through many adverse levels and put their fast-action reflexes to the test. The game also entertains the player with great visuals and a gross amount of action.
A human-sized, wacky bunny has never been as much fun as he is now on the Genesis. Cartoon fanatics, be sure not to miss out on this cool game. It is a roller-' coaster ride of a game!
This one's a little too average for me. Granted It's fun but too many areas leave you feeling annoyed because of control. Good points? It's fun, It has bright colorful graphic and there's a variety of levels to play through-each with its own theme. It was very cool to see so many different characters from the cartoon star In the game. If you're a Warner Bros, fan, this game Is even better for you. I can't say that I wanted to play the game again after going through It once. When I pay $40 or $50 for a game that Is so average--like Bugs Bunny--I feel kind of Japed. When games like Vectorman are out, why bother with the average?
Looney Tunes can always bring a smile to my face, I have to admit. Trying to look beyond that, Bugs Bunny Is really nothing special. It's a platform game much like any other cartoony deal. Some new Ideas can be found, like bouncing up to grab dynamite and a parachute to blow up entrances In the ground, but they are not earth-shattering. Some levels are difficult to find your way around, especially the underground mines. Once you get lost, you'll circle all around, wandering endlessly through the same paths. When you see the same surroundings over and over, It will drive you buggy. Not bad to keep the young end busy.
Fans of Warner Bros. wisecracking rabbit might get a kick out of this game, since Its levels are loosely based on the bunny's old cartoons. Otherwise the title Is barely above average. While the graphics and animation are colorful and cartoonish, they're not as good as the visuals in Disney-inspired Genesis titles. The sound's only so-so, too. This game's greatest strength is its variety of levels. Each stage sends Bugs on a specific mission, so the latter levels always offer something new to do. The levels are also large and give you plenty of room to get lost. Bugs doesn't control very well, though; he slides around too much.
Everyone's favorite wascally wabbit gives players an action-filled adventure that changes greatly from level to level. Although the control may not be as precise as possible, it is still fair and just even to beginning players. At first glance BB In DT may appear to be just another side-scrolling adventure game that requires more reflexes and minimal amounts of Intellect, but let me assure you, this Is a thinking man's game requiring as much strategy as a side-scrolling game can handle. This one Is great for all but the youngest players. Great characters and plenty of different action to go the distance in this one.
