Masochism has always been a feature of the best Warner Bros. cartoons: if a character ever wanted to achieve something, it was a sure bet that he or she would have to undergo some extreme pain to be a success. If you like this aspect of the Looney Tunes cartoons, then I think you will definitely appreciate Sylvester and Tweety on the Genesis.

If you're expecting a game similar to Sunsoft's Looney Tunes platform adventures, Sylvester and Tweety will be a cool surprise for you: it's almost a strategy game! In your quest, as Sylvester, to capture the ever-elusive Golden Bird, you have to plan your moves carefully every step of the way. Watch some old cartoons to understand the cunning ways of Sylvester and get yourself in the mood, because every level is structured in a similar way to a Warner Bros. cartoon.

Graphics

The characters are rendered true to the classic Warner Bros. cartoons - that's what I need to see to get myself all in a bundle.

Sound/Music

Sylvester speaks! Digitized voices and assorted beings, splats, and kerplunks will be music to your ears. Great music too.

Playability

The controls are a little bit frustrating. The puzzle-solving, however, is excellent; wait'll you try to conquer the freight-train stage.

Lowdown

If you've ever wanted to know what it feels like to be beaten, set on fire, electrocuted and smashed all in the pursuit of a canary dinner, Sylvester & Tweety will fulfill your needs. Next stop, Virtua Cartoon.

Game Reviews

Sylvester and Tweety star in this raucous chase based on the Looney Toons animated television series. Sylvester really wants to get his paws on the elusive yellow bird, but all Tweety wants to do is play a few pranks on his predator. With action sequences and detailed backgrounds lifted straight from the classic cartoons, Cagey Capers uses the original animation to make the game play out just like a Saturday morning television show. Lots of classic characters make cameos (including Granny and her broom), so keep your eyes peeled, and get ready for side-splittingly hilarious adventures.

After all these years, that poor puddy cat, Sylvester, is still after sweet little Tweety Bird! TecMagik brings your favorite Looney Tunes cartoon to life in Sylvester and Tweety in Cagey Capers on the Genesis. All your favorite characters from the Sylvester and Tweety Bird cartoons are here in eight big, levels of fun. Sylvester and Tweety in Cagey Capers is so cartoonlike, you'll think you're watching the show rather than playing the game! Silly Puddy Cat!

Sylvester and Tweety in Cagey Capers can be tough, with lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing. But it also has a handy difficulty meter that lets you choose the difficulty between 1% and 100% (how's that for choices?!).

Hot hints:

  1. Pick up clock icons to increase your time limit.
  2. When facing a dead end, look for another way out. Try stacking Items to reach a higher platform.
  3. The Hyde potion only repels the Tweety monster, but does not destroy it. 4.Throw fish and bones far away from you to distract enemies.

Overview

Sufferin' succotash! The age-old chase between foolish feline and savory songbird continues in Sylvester & Tweety in Cagey Capers from Time Warner Interactive for the Genesis. The bad ol' puddy tat still wants some Tweety pie for lunch and is willing to go through any indignity to get it. This seven-level, one-player comic fun-fest features an ongoing chase through places like Granny's house and backyard, a speeding train, an alley, a mad scientist's lab, and an ocean liner. How tough could catching a little bird-brain be? Cat-astrophically hard, of course.

Hello Breakfasi!

You've seen these two before? OK. So you haven't been hiding under a rock while this dynamic cat and bird duo has been making the world laugh for the last 40 plus years. The ever-popular Sylvester and Tweety are back, this time starring in their own Genesis game. Sylvester still seems to think that he's going to get breakfast on the wing, and Tweety is gonna have a great time changing his mind.

I Tawt I Taw a Poddy Tat

Playing as Sylvester, your goal is to get your hands, er, paws on the yellow fellow. Each level is a chase over the landscape to find Tweety in each of his hiding places and move him forward. At the end of every level you catch the bird and move on to the next stage.

Along the way, you'll be cat-apulted by a really big mouse (baby kangaroo) named Hippety Hopper, play cat burglar on the outside of apartment buildings, catnap in trash cans, and catwalk the inside of test tubes in a lab. You attempt to outsmart mainstay characters from Looney Tunes cartoons, like Granny (a sweet little old lady who swings like Barry Bonds), Spike (a lovable bulldog who thinks he's a boxer), The Red Cat (obviously a traitor to his species), and the Tweety Monster (he got into the Hyde potion and wants to floss his teeth with your tail).

To get an extra life at the end of the Mayhem Express level, let the gigantic mouse play kick-the-cat to get back up top before collecting your flying appetizer, and fall off the top right of the car.

Use the Scratch to turn off any switches you see. You may not know what it is you've just powered down, but you can be sure that you've furthered the cat's crazy cause.

Junior may be embarrassed by his father's foibles but he's still out there routing for dear old dad. Follow his pointing paw to find the tasty Tweety treat.

Use the flagpoles to get the guy with the tail an ounce or two of bounce.

Merry Melodies, Looney Tunes, and Great Noises

You'll note from the screens that Sylvester & Tweety looks just like the cartoons. So how are the sounds? From the front end you've got that cat-chy feel with The Merry Go Round Broke Down — the Looney Tunes theme song. Each level's tune manages to be fun and cartoony—from mad scientist music in the Hyde and Shriek stages to Chicago Blues-style tunes in Back Alley Blues. The voices are straight-digitized Sylvester and Tweety, and are great comedy in themselves.

Make like a member of the feline freight movers' union. Stacking stuff leads to snacking stuff.

Hippety Hopper is what Sylvester would call a...gulp...really big mouse. He'll help you attain extra altitude.

Cat Stalkers

The traitorous Red Cat doesn't deseive to call himself a member of the feline species. Whomp him with the Mallet till he sees stars, or toss him a Fish.

Granny always tries to make a clean sweep of her day. Keep the puddy tat outta the way.

Poor Spike...always letting his instincts get the better of him. Here boy, here boy, get the bone...fetch!

These robot dogs can be bashed into smithereens or talked into a friendly game of fetch. Just watch their teeth. Meouch.

Every cat's nightmare — being eaten by your prey. Scratch your way out of the Tweety Monster's big gullet or toss him some Shrink Potion.

Stage Props

Here, kitty, kitty, kitty! Does the less-than-smart kitty warn a nice Fish?

The Umbrella will keep you from bashing Sylvester's poor widdle head.

When you choose the Boxing Gloves, come out swinging.

Wonder what the A is for on the bottle of Shrink Potion? We at Sega Visions are betting it stands for antidote.

The "use a bigger Mallet" theory of crisis management in action.

Play fetch with Spike and the Robot Dogs. Toss 'em a Bone.

Cats may be good natural jumpers but can really achieve extra altitude with the use of a Pogo Stick. Offer one to your cat sometime...you'll see.

Sylvester hates electricity. Watts the problem, puddy tat?

Use these Springs to launch our fearless furball.

It's windy on them there trains. Run, boy, run. See Sylvester sprint. See Sylvester catch supper.

Find the Pogo Stick in the third train car to get the height you need to reach the dining car. Seems appropriate. Dining car. Gets the old saliva glands running, no?

Hot Hints

Hints:

  1. You must have an 81 percent difficulty setting to be able to play all the levels.
  2. Use the Umbrella when falling from any real height
  3. When taking on any of the cat-stalker characters, like Spike, remember to collect any stage props you've already used again (they come back). You never know when you'll need to throw the big, bad dog a bone.
  4. Scratch at Tweety constantly. Every time you get flying feathers you collect 20,000 points. Every 100,000 points is an extra life.
  5. Use the Tweety Scope. In addition to finding Tweety, you'll leam what's between you and him.
  6. You can't hit Granny - you should be ashamed for even thinking of it! You either outrun her or find a place to conceal your scruffy, flea-bitten hide.

Power-Ups

The Super Hero Suit makes His Feline-ness invincible for a short time.

Use Hiding Places like the Cat Bed and the Trash Can to evade those who would stop you on your quest for the yellow squab.

Ah, the heralded 1-Up! These add to your existing nine lives.

Cans o' Tuna increase Sylvester's energy. Nowhere on the can does it say dolphin-safe, though.

The Clock gives you two minutes oft your existing play timer. The shorter the time played on each level, the higher your bonus.

Hello:

Sylvester is at it again! His favorite meal (Tweety) is so close he can taste it - but there's a slight catch. He has to get past Granny, Spike, Hippety Hopper the Kangaroo and more to get his paws on Tweety. It's amazing what this cat will do for a bite to eat. >

  1. Use helpful Acme items like pogo sticks, binoculars, and superhero suits to avoid trouble.
  2. Full animation and cartoon like graphics and voices bring this hysterical "Toon" adventure to life!
  3. Multiple levels of difficulty adjust play for all ages and abilities!
  4. Use Sylvester's patented evasion maneuvers to hide from Tweety's protectors!
  5. Grab items found in the background to make difficult, but climbable stacks!
