Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs Big Break
Reviewed by Phil
The story here is that you control Buster Bunny, Plucky Duck and Hampton (a pig)
and you must help your friend Babs launch her acting career. Unfortunately, Montana
Max wants to make sure that won't happen. You only control one character at any
given time. They are all alike, except for their "weapons" (respectively: carrots,
pineapples and watermelons). These weapons aren't really useful because you can
beat all the enemies by jumping on them, jumping or ducking (insert lame joke on
Plucky Duck here).
Throughout the 4 levels, you will meet your friends Dizzy Devil, Furball, Fifi and
Shirley the Loon. You cannot control them, but they will help you.
Graphics 9 out of 10
For a Game Boy game made in 1991, the characters look pretty good. In fact, you're
probably gonna find them cute. The background fits in nicely, but doesn't add much.
In a few moments, some jokes slip in there, but you won't find yourself rolling on
the floor. The characters look exactly like the ones on TV.
Music and Sound 5 out of 10
The sound goes really well with the scene you are in. The sound effects however,
can be really annoying. For example, even if you scroll through it, the text will make
an annoying sound each time 1 letter is written on the screen.
Game Challenge 3 out of 10
This game was obviously made with youngsters in mind, as any average gamer
should be able to go through this game in 1 or 2 days. There are only 4 levels (the
school, the city, the forest, Montana's mansion), and they are rather short. You can
also earn lives rather easily in little games. In one of them, Montana Mash, a
Whack-a-Mole rip-off, you can win 3 or more lives in a snap. The real challenge
could be to finish the game using only one life.
Game Play-Fun 6.5 out of 10
The game play was adequate, no more, no less. Sometimes, you will get up from
ducking before you would want to, but that is one of the only flaws. The rest is
OK. For fans of the show, Babs Big Break should be fun, because the characters
look and think just like their counterparts on the Saturday mornings.
You won't get frustrated really often, if it isn't for the occasional loss of a heart
caused by an anvil that you thought missed you or maybe during the final scene
against your arch-rival, Montana.
Replayability 2 out of 10
You might find it fun to try to finish the game in say, half an hour, by only using
one life. If you don't, consider selling your cartridge.
Game Value 8 out of 10
This game shouldn't cost too much, and should be a good way to keep your son,
daughter, niece, cousin, etc, entertained for a while. This game is one player only,
meaning that you won't have to play with them!
Overall 6.1 out of 10
For an average gamer, this is a waste of time and money. For a kid who loves Buster
and the gang, however, this is a good way to keep him busy during a long summer trip.
