Ren & Stimpy - Quest for the Shaven Yak
Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy! The stars of Nickelodeon's hit animated series, The Ren and Stimpy Show, Ren Hoek and Stimpy bring their hilarious, weird mix of gross-out comedy to the Game Gear in the Quest for the Shaven Yak Starring Ren Hoek and Stimpy. The hairballs and insults fly in this . one-player action/adventure game as Ren and Stimpy try to save the hallowed tradition of Yak Shaving Day for posterity...or just for the chance to meet their true hero, the Great Shaven Yak.
You are on a mission of mercy to return the Hooves to the Great Shaven Yak, who lost them on Yak Shaving Day You can play as either hot-blooded, bug-eyed Ren, who tosses insults as quickly as the toothbrushes he's armed with, or plodding, innocent Stimpy, who hurls hairballs to truly repel his enemies. You have unlimited ammo, and will also find other special weapons such as Soap, Toast and Remote Controls that will help you out of jams.
Quest for the Shaven Yak spans five levels, with multiple sublevels in each level. From the Blacker Than Black Forest, you hazard the Stinking Dry Desert, journey to the Stinking Wet Bayou, scale the peaks of Perilous Mt. Hoek, then travel to the Great Frozen North. Cry-baby bears, bombardier buzzards, swamp snakes, and even treacherous weather will hamper your quest for the Shaven Yak. Secret areas abound in the levels, so be on the lookout for platforms that magically appear to transport you to them. Some of the caverns also have hidden rooms with prizes, so take your time in each area and be thorough.
One thing to notice as you're playing: Ren and Stimpy each have special abilities (for instance, Ren is lighter than Stimpy and can cross some platforms that will break under Stimpy's weight). In some areas, it is better to play as Ren, while in other areas, Stimpy has the advantage. You can change characters at each level once the character you are playing loses all its hit points. Each character has three Tries, so test each one to see who is the better choice for that level.
Quest for the Shaven Yak has a password save feature, so you can stop to do the "Happy Happy Joy Joy" dance after you've completed a level. Help Ren and Stimpy save the great tradition of Yak Shaving Day...and get in a few guffaws from their many gross-outs. The Search for the Great Yak begins!
The Blacker Than Black Forest
Pause the screen, then hit Start and you will catch Ren sheepishly scratching while Stimpy works on filling up his spit jar.
In all the levels, always explore the lower ledges of hillsides when you're riding logs. Prizes like this TV usually are hidden there.
The Walking Crock-o-stimpy is a super secret 1-up that appears when you least expect it. Shooting at him won't work; you must do a special move to get the 1-up.
The trees are filled with noisy woodpeckers and spiny tree lobsters. Listen for the woodpeckers' loud hammering before they attack. The tree lobsters will attack you only when you are on the branch beneath them.
When you get to the second set of cliffs, watch for the magic canoe platform to appear. It will carry you to the top where two TV prizes are hidden.
The porcupine's tough hide is impervious to your hairballs. Jump over him, but watch out for the spikes he'll shoot at you.
The Happy Helmet gives you limited invincibility.
This big bear is really just a crybaby. You can't make him move...but if you shoot him, he'll cry great big bear tears. Jump over him while he's sobbing.
The level 1 boss has razor-sharp claws. He will jump over you three times, then charge. Direct your shots upward when he's jumping over you, hitting him constantly. Jump when he charges you. It takes a good many hits but eventually he's all washed up.
The Stinking Dry Desert
The small green cactuses shoot prickly needles.
Watch out for overhead attacks from egg-bombing vultures.
The Soap special weapon will let you shoot bubbles at an upward angle. Make sure you're in the proper position.
This cool glass of lemonade is a mirage. When you gel too close, it turns into a scorpion. Shoot it first.
This skeleton will come alive and charge you. Send him back to his grave before he makes you join him there!
Jump over these whirling cyclones. They will also sneak up from behind you.
It's best to let sleeping dogs lie...especially when they're dead. Jump over the bone he's tossing at you. He won't charge you.
Oil oozes out of the rocks all around you in the caverns. Take your time.
In the lower caverns past the spiders, the oil drops will grow legs and chase you. You can't hurt them, so just jump over them.
Some of Ihe geysers will shoot bursts at you. Is it time for your Saturday bath?
- The special weapons shoot in patterns. Toast shoots in a circular pattern, Soap shoots upward at an angle and the Remote Control shoots in a low straight line.
- Jump on the canoe platforms that magically appear. Riding them to the top will reveal extra areas and prizes.
- Ren jumps z lot higher than Stimpy, but Stimpy jumps farther.
- Special prizes in each level will add one hit point to your health meter. Look for the Toaster in the Forest, the Canteen in the Desert, Boots in the Bayou, the Roast Chicken in Mt. Hoek and Mittens in the Frozen North.
