Dishing up some major comedy for the Genesis. Sega now has Desert Demolition on its way to the store shelves.
Choose to be the ravenously hungry Wile E. Coyote or the infamous Road Runner. Then you'll be treated to a race against time. Hunt down the Road Runner or flee for your life.
The Coyote has a wide array of Acme tools that backfire, and the RR has his lightning-fast speed.
Desert Demolition really has a lot of cool animations that make it look almost like an interactive cartoon. If you enjoyed the shows, DD is most certainly for you.
The Continuing Chase
After years of being adversaries, you'd think these two would learn.
But no — the chaser and chasee are still at it — to the amusement of audiences worldwide.
This title gives you two very different games.
As Road Runner you get a high-speed, wild ride of an adventure.
You dash through the game taunting the "genius" and thwarting his (hopefully) feeble attempts to catch you.
Playing as Wile E. Coyote, you build fantastic traps and use your obviously unlimited credit at Acme to collect gadgetry that furthers your pursuit of the tempting taste treat.
Beep! Beep! (Splat!)
The terrific comic artwork in Desert Demolition will amaze you.
You'll feel like you've directly entered the cartoon.
You'll blast through cactus-filled deserts; climb, leap, and gadget your way through towering buttes; chase across the tops of trains; maneuver through warehouses; and blaze through sleepy border towns.
The music makes the cartoon feel even stronger — you get tunes that are directly linked to the characters' movements — just like in the great original Warner Bros, orchestrations.
Lastly, expect to see a lot of old friends.
You get cameos from some of the Looney Tunes greats like Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Sylvester, Tweety, and Daffy Duck.
This one's going to be hot — more details in a coming Sega Visions issue.
What do you get when you pit sheer speed against crazed cartoon contraptions?
You get Desert Demolition: Starring Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote, of course.
This one-player fur-and-feather-flying festival lets you play as either the zipping and zany bird or the always hungry and inept coyote genius.
With scads of amazing Acme gadgets, like Spring Shoes, Rocket Skis, Jet Packs, and Jackhammers, you blast through multipath levels in your quest to capture the Road Runner or evade the snapping teeth of Wile E. Coyote.
This game tosses you straight into the wacky world of Warner Bros.
Action and keeps you in stitches.
While Desert Demolition looks and sounds like the cartoons, but I had a problem with the control. It seems like so much attention was paid to the animation that the game play was left unfinished It's hard to avoid getting hit, and this gets frustrating. It's nice being able to play as both the Road Runner and the Coyote, but this doesn't make up for the control problem this game suffers from.
All this game needed was a little more control tweaking and it would have been better. As it stands, the graphics and animation are very crisp and colorful. The annoying sound whenever you walk or run can really bother you at first, but you learn to forget it. The zany traps that are set up reflect the cartoon world perfectly. If you can learn to live with the quirky control, you'll have fun with this one.
It hurts me to say this because I'm a fan of Looney Tunes, but I was disappointed with the way Desert Demolition turned out. Yes, this is another installment of pretty graphics, great animation and superb sound, all of which was overwhelmed by the poor play control. Although you can choose either Wile E. Coyote or Road Runner, this game could have benefitted as a two-player game.
Once again the odd couple of cartoonland comes to a home system. The graphics and animation are excellent However, the game play seems a tittle weak and may be geared toward a younger audience. It could have used a few more icons or interaction between the characters, although playing as Wile E. gives you a lot more to do. It's fun but needs more interaction.
