A brand-new amusement park has just opened outside happy Acme Acres. However, Buster and Babs Bunny, Plucky Duck, Hamton Hog, and Furrball the cat are about to find out that this place isn't amusing at all! The Tiny Toons will have to beat four wacky, wild rides in order to enter the Fun House and find out who's behind the mischief -- as if you didn't know.

Looney Fun

Tiny Toon Adventures 2 by Konami isn't a full-fledged action/adventure game like the first NES game or even like the Game Boy version. You still get your fair share of simple but entertaining action by toddling around with the Toons.

First off, you must successfully beat the four rides -- the High Speed Log Ride, the Wild 'n' Weird Western Train, the radical Roller Coaster, and the Bumper Cars -- in order to earn the four Gold Tickets you need to enter the Fun House. The House is where the fun really begins as you chase after your unamusing mystery host. The Log Ride, the Train, the Roller Coaster, and the Fun House feature simple side-view, multi-' scrolling action. The Bumper Cars is an overhead-view event.

The rides may sound simple, but they're deceptively tough. Little kids will need help. Bigger kids will need patience. Although there's really not much to them, the game's dependable controls change for each ride. For example, Furrball dodges toads, fish, and birds as he surfs through a log jam. Hamton kicks A (for "Animals") across the top of a treacherous train. Babs tries to keep her balance on a speedy roller coaster platform. Plucky bumps bumper cars with two obnoxious rodents. Finally, Buster hops, skips, and jumps past not so-fun traps and obstacles in the Fun House.

ProTip: On the Train Ride, the cars split inside the tunnels. Keep Hamton positioned forward and towards the right edge of the screen. Also, watch out for bad guys.

Turn on and Toon in

Even if you aren't a Tiny Toon TV fan, you'll find the graphics in this game adorable. The characters flash great facial expressions and animations that reflect their TV personas. The music and sound effects put on an okay NES concert. They're simple, cheery, and chirpy.

When Babs rides the Roller Coaster, don't let her touch any part of a building.

Th-th-that's Not All, Folks!

As with the TV cartoon show, you shouldn't totally dismiss Tiny Toon Adventures as a Saturday morning kiddie fare. The challenge is real, even if the overall game play is somewhat two- dimensional. At the very least, Adventures in Wackyland will keep you in Toon.

  • During the Log Ride, a log isn't the only thing you must ride.
  • To beat the rodents in the Bumper Cars, Plucky Duck must be extra pushy. Try to simultaneously hold down B (apply the brakes and hold your position) and A (charge up a power Dash). When the Dash is ready, aim your car with the directional controls and release both buttons.

It's Movie

Konami's new game keeps the Tiny Toon Adventures series alive and kicking. This time around Montana Max has built a high-tech cinema and has cast himself as the hero of all its movies. And Buster Bunny just hates bad acting. His only choice is to go into the movies himself and change the endings.

The great graphics, sound effects, and music of the earlier Tiny Toon games are present in this one, too. And although it's geared toward younger players, it's fairly challenging some levels are downright difficult. Luckily, the complexity is balanced by handy bonus rounds. So grab some carrot-flavored popcorn and get ready to watch some movies!

For a portable game system, Tiny Toon's packs quite a punch with excellent graphics, good control and most of the Tiny Toon cast! As Buster, you must pass several levels of enemies, with your running and jumping skills.
