Ren & Stimpy - Quest for the Shaven Yak
For all who wear unwashed lederhosen every single day of their life...or those who pick their ears...and...and...scratch their butts...
Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!
Ren Hoek, an Asthma Hound Chihuahua, and Stimpson J. Cat (his affable buddy) are Ren and Stimpy, the '90's answer to Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, sort of.
You play as either Ren or Stimpy on a quest to find the Shaven Yak, a Santa Claus-type character who deposits his shavings in their sink.
During their search, Ren and Stimpy pass through such places as the Stinkina Wet Bavou, where they encounter such R & S favorites as the Croc-o-Stimpy and a vulgar vulture who drops more than hints. The side-scrolling game play is simple - Ren and Stimpy just run along and heave things (like hairballs or toothbrushes) at the bad guys. You might even find Stimpy's Stupe-On-A-Tron helmet for invincibility or Powdered Toast for homing projectile ability.
To highlight the action, you get a range of familiar themes, such as "Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!" and the ever popular "Log" song. The music alone is worth the price of admission to the R&S show. The graphics, too, are very good by Game Gear standards. A lot of attention was paid to important details, such as Ren scratching his butt when you press Pause.
Yes Sir, I Uke It
