Bugs Bunny in Rabbit Rampage

Bugs Bunny is one of the most recognized cartoon characters in history. Now Bugs -- along with some of his most memorable friends -- brings his antics to the SNES in this great-looking and funtastic game!

You're in the Funny

You play Rabbit Rampage as Bugs, and you're hoppin' mad. It appears that an animator is on the loose and he's painting you into tight spots and sticky situations. You travel through ten levels of Looney madness, knocking off cartoon characters left and right as you try to find the animator responsible for this dethpicable destruction. Among others, you'll meet and fight the maniacal wrestler The Crusher, the wily Wile E. Coyote, the terrible Tazmanian Devil, and of course, Elmer Fudd.

You defend against enemies by tossing pies, kicking, spinning, and bopping heads. Helping you out is the Acme Company, which has strewn various contraptions around the areas where Bugs is trapped. Acme, always known for its backfiring inventions, has spared no expense with these clever items. You can find Exploding Dog Bones, Anvils, Falling Safes, Pies, TNT, Bombs, Corks (for blow-hard Wolves), and Jelly (sticky traps for Gingerbread soldiers).

For those of you who never wanted the cartoons to end, here's your game!

Cartoon Crisp

The graphics in Rabbit Rampage are outstanding. You'll immediately recognize every character, and the innovative backgrounds are funny and eye-catching. The animation highlights the humor in this game, with funny cuts from the cartoons showing up in levels, as when Yosemite Sam shows up with his sneezing dragon ("Dragons is so stuuuupid!"). Bugs isn't the only star here, and a lot of attention is paid to the detail of every character in each level.

ProTips:

  • Use Acme items as soon as you find them. You can't carry Hems from one level to the next.
  • Stay even with the cowboys and you won't be harmed by their guns. Bounce on their heads to get lid of them.

The game varies from the cartoons in one noticeable way: sound. Although the game does have two familiar themes at the beginning, "What's Up, Doc?" and "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down," the music throughout the game is barely noticeable. What's more, the voices and sound effects in the game are infrequent and inconsequential.

  • Kick against snooping hounds -- bouncing on them takes too long. Or, jump over them to avoid a confrontation.
  • The most important Acme tools are the Level Markers. Try to hang onto these as long as possible, and use them only after you've gone through a difficult part of the stage.

That Wascaily Wabhit

It won't be all fun and loony games, either. Some of the levels (the Haunted House, for instance) are very difficult to get through, and require a lot of trial and error. As with Roar of the Beast, Sunsoft has again given us a beautiful game with some very challenging game play. However, don't be daunted by a couple of banana-peel falls. Stick with Rabbit Rampage and you'll see one of the funniest ending levels on any video game system.

You gotta be loony to pass up this game. Weak sound and daunting game play aside, this game is a keeper; it's a solid addition to any SNES library.

  • You have to beat all three of the Big Bad Wolves to get through this level. Save Corks and Dynamite for the last Wolf at the Brick House. He's the toughest.
  • Don't use any Anvils until after you turn the switch, because you need them on the return trip. Move right and use an Anvil whenever you see El Tom's horns. Keep moving right until you lead him into the steel wall.
  • Check in the chimney for a Cork.
  • Duck whenever the Lance gets too close for comfort, and jump on Sam s nose when it swells and turns red. You have to hit him right on the money, so be careful.
  • If you get shrunk by a blue laser, one stomp by a Martian will cost you a life. If you shrink, run under the Martian that shrank you.

What's up, Doc! Sunsoft sure is taking pride in their Looney Tunes lineup. This game is an example of why they do!

Bugs is being pursued by an evil animator who wants him out of the picture! He has to go up against all his previous adventures so he can find all the characters who want him...er...erased. Filled with great animation and plenty of expected Bugs Bunny gags, this one recaptures his history perfectly!

This cart has all the right ingredients - great graphics, one of the best licenses in the world and lots of moves for Bugs Bunny. Although some of the game play can get frustrating at times, once you learn the play mechanics, the game becomes one of the best I've played in a long time. The scrolling is smooth and some of the comical animations are outrageously funny. Don't miss this excellent cart!

While the game can be a bit frustrating to play at first, Rabbit Rampage becomes very enjoyable once you get over the hump. The graphics are very cartoon-like and add to the atmosphere of the Bugs Bunny theme. There's loads of technique with lots of hidden rooms to discover. If you're a Bugs Bunny fan, this game is a lot of fun. But be prepared for some frustrating game play until you master it.

This Looney Tunes cart has some decent graphics, as well as some of the cool sounds from the cartoon series. The real bad part about the game is its poor game play. Bugs Bunny's high kick can be a very useless attack. At times you have to get very close to an enemy to kick him; but before you do, you're already in range of his punch. Totally unfair - just like some bullets you can't seem to avoid! Frustrating.

Once again Sunsoft brings out a game based on one of the craziest cartoons of our time. Great graphics and animations of Bugs Bunny and other known characters are commendable. Crazy sound effects of characters will surely remind you of the cartoon series. The only drawback I can find here is the game play. It takes a bit of time to get used to the controls. Overall, it's a very good game. What's up Doc!
