Continuing Hi-Tech Expressions' deluge of platform games based on cartoon characters is Tom & Jerry, the second game based on popular cat-and-mouse pair. Nothing revolutionary here, just good ol' platform action that fans of the cartoons will enjoy, especially because the antics of Tom and Jerry are very faithful to the show. This time Tom's mouse-napped Jerry's nephew Tuffy and locked him in a trunk up in the attic. Now it's up to you to help your furry little buddy, Jerry, dash his way up from the basement through every level of the house in order to rescue Tuffy in time. Along the way, you'll encounter dozens of household obstacles, hidden dangers and hilarious surprises... not to mention lots and lots of cheese. Be on a lookout for that devious cat! |
Those who like Hi-Tech's earlier Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers will probably enjoy the game, as well as fans of CAT-astrophe, the first Tom & Jerry game. The addition of inventory is a nice touch, as is the vibrant graphics and bonus levels. Thumbs up!
