Beavis and Butt-head are here and they are badder than ever! One afternoon while doing what they do best, watching TV, they see that Gwar is coming to their town. Bound and determined to go to the concert, they decide that if they do lots of cool things Gwar will let them into the concert free. They waste no time getting started, either. At the beginning of the game you decide where to go first by changing the TV channels.

Once you are there you must keep them alive and evade a lot of alive and evade a lot of different enemies. At the Turbo Mall 2000 you can search for change and then play two different sub-games.

THE GOOD

Fans of the show will enjoy the chance to play as the popular pair.

THE BAD

This game is full of cheap hits that you just can't avoid.

THE UGLY

Okay, one cheap hit I can deal with, but when one pushes you into another it becomes really annoying.

Game Reviews

Beavis and Butt-Head are not role models. They're not even human. They're cartoon characters. Some of the things they do would cause a person to get hurt, expelled, arrested, possibly deported. To put it another way: Don't try this at home.

Well, actually, you can try it at home now. Although already stars of some latter-day SNES and Genesis games, Mike Judge's gruesome twosome have finally made the jump to 32-Bit. It was a long time coming, but it looks like developer New Level has gotten something of a handle on the whole thing.

Humor is obviously the most important element of any game starring these two. Yes you need the graphics to be recognizable, but underneath all of the icing you need to ensure that the underlying game is rooted firmly in adolescent, ridiculous humor. And thankfully B&B Get Big...wood (ho, ho) has been designed very much with this in mind. Set in Hollywood after the guys have finished work on their next movie, they find that they don't have any money with which to get home, so they have to take odd-jobs on the film sets in order to make cash. Conveniently, there are all sorts of movies being made, so B&B can travel through some varied environments with vaguely "filmy" themes.

At its heart it's a fairly simple 3D graphic adventure with smallish locations that each contain tasks that meld platform elements with puzzles and stupid jokes. The gameplay in itself isn't particularly hilarious (although some of the puzzles are reasonably chuckleworthy) but what really shines is the interaction between Beavis and Butt-head.

You don't just control one character or the other, you actually control both. By switching between the two, you can manipulate objects, lure things, push things around and distract people. It's not spectacularly original in concept, but it's refreshing to see the idea used in this context. What makes it all so much more fun though, is the fact that the two guys are constantly abusing each other. And I mean constantly. If they're not slapping each other around or calling each other "buttmunch," they're venting their anger out of the game toward the player. "Can't you get someone cool to play this instead?" is one of the hundreds of insults that gets thrown around if you dare to make even the slightest mistake.

Thankfully, like this month's cover-star South Park, enough speech is being recorded to ensure things don't get stale too quickly. We are assured that literally hours of dialogue has been recorded so that as you go through the game you don't get completely sick and tired of the same "huh-huh-huh" sample playing over and over.

Beavis and Butt-Head will be on the CWAR-path on the Game Gear, too! As in the SNES and Genesis games, the guys will be hot to dig out the dough to make it to the concert. This time they trash their favorite Highland hangouts in a side-scrolling, jump-and-dump smashfest through four levels. The action looks pretty good, but the sounds-including the B&B theme tune and, of course, the goofy laughs-were primo on the prelim cart. Beavis and Butt-Head are out to rule handhelds!

Beavis and Butt-head are finally here in their own game for the Game Gear! This game is a side-scrolling action game where you control the rude pair through some crazy adventures. You have to jump over fire hydrants and other obstacles while you search cash machines and phones for money.

The money will be used later in the game to buy food to keep them alive. But don't eat too much or you'll end up on the toilet! The game features some really cool effects like voices that are directly from the game, If you are a fan of the terrible twosome, then you will get a real kick out of this one!

THE GOOD

The sounds in this game are really good and the voices are very cool!

THE BAD

Sometimes there are so many enemies that you have to take multiple hits.

THE UGLY

The dude standing in the middle of the street, wearing leather, attacking you with a whip!

If your idea of fun is cutting up insects with a chain saw, or maybe just launching snot rockets, then this is just possibly the game for you! However, if you prefer games that have a sense of humor to them, just skip this one, dude!

Question: I am stumped. Whenever I play, I get stuck trying to find the last three ticket pieces. I need some help! I have already found the one piece you get after beating Billy Bob in the race, the piece you find in the parrot's cage, the piece under the top secret file in the army guy's office, the piece you find in the nest after cutting down the tree, the one the guy belches up in Burger World, and the piece that the Buttlady gives up after she takes a swim in grape pop. Where are the other three pieces, and how do you get into the laundromat?

Answer: Getting into the Laundry is simple - grab the jeans off the bedroom floor at Butt-Head's house, then head to the Turbo Mall. At the far end of the mall is the Yoghurt store, and in the store's bathroom you find a bar of soap on the sink. On the way back to the laundry, stop at the auto mechanic's place, overcome him by any means necessary, and grab your free can of oil. With the jeans and the soap, you can get into the laundry. Stand in front of the dryer on the far left and use the oil to grease the door. The ticket is inside.

There's another piece on top of Principal McVicar's head at the High School. Enter the first door in the school hallway to get into Buzzcut's class. Belch or fart on him (no other weapons have any effect) until he passes out, then grab the two bottles of chemicals off his desk. Walk to the end of the school hallway to find the Principal, and use the chemicals in the office.

The last piece is a squeaker. As you're leaving the High School, look under Van Driesson's desk and grab the miscellaneous hunk of goo you find under there, then head home. Use the glop as bait for couch fishing, and you reel in the last piece of the ticket.

Steps:

  1. Stand directly in front of the last dryer and use the oil to open the door quietly. The piece is inside.
  2. Stop by Van Driesson's room on the way out and grab the glob of stuff from under his desk. Go back to Butt-Head's house and use the stuff as bait for couch fishing. A-ha! The last piece! Gwar! Gwar! Gwar!
  3. Go back to We 'B' Cars and shoot the crazed mechanic inside, then take his can of oil. Using the jeans from Butt-Head's room and the soap, you can get into the laundry.
  4. To get the piece off McVicar's head, belch or fart on Buzzcut until he passes out, then grab the 'A' and 'B' chemicals. Go back to McVicar's office and use them in front of his desk.

Truly, these are the End Times. Mike Judge's animated (well, sort of animated anyway) duo are invading your very homes this fall, thanks to Viacom New Media. The Genesis version combines a graphic adventure with action - sort of like Maniac Mansion, except it has different characters, a different storyline, and no sense of taste or decorum.

Beavis and Butt-Head bought tickets to a Gwar concert ('cause, after all, Gwar is cool), but a bunch of stuff happened to 'em, and now the tickets are in pieces and scattered all over the place. If they're gonna have a prayer of getting into the show, they're gonna have to find the pieces and put the tickets back together.

The game is designed for one or two players. The thought of using your brain in anything even remotely connected to Beavis and Butt-Head is pretty darn bizarre, but we can honestly say that the puzzles and obstacles are real stumpers - twisted, sick, and depraved stumpers, but a serious challenge all the same.

Hell, any game that you can totally annoy your parents with is good enough for us!

Beavis and ButtHead is a solidly crafted hop-n-bop adventure with moderate challenge but a diluted version of B&B's trademark puberty-propelled personality. In their quest for admission to a GWAR concert, the boys nudge along in straightforward but uninspired game play. The controls keep the game crisp, but B&B are limited to basic jumps and nonviolent freakoid firepower like paint guns.

ProTip: Some obstacles require teamwork. Use the Leg Thnm (press Button A).

The graphics and sounds are cartoon simple. The flat, slightly grungy graphics are B&B perfect, but the guys would trash the jumpy rock tunes.

  • During the Highland High Chicken Fights, the block move (hold Up) protects against oncoming basketballs.

Beavis and Butt-Head don't suck, but it doesn't rule either. This game's strictly a thumb massage... but if saying "massage" makes you giggle; you're Beavis and Butt-Head material.

America’s favorite morons make their way the Sega Genesis in MTV’S Beavis and Butt-Head. You’ve got to help the mentally deficient duo score tickets to a GWAR concert, but the boys don’t have any cash to buy tickets.

Beavis and Butt-head finally saved enough money toiling at Burger World to purchase GWAR tickets. As they held them majestically in the air, Anderson's poodle suddenly leaped up and swallowed them. The boys chased after the dog until it finally spit them out on Anderson's lawn--while he was mowing it! Now it's up to you to help Beavis and Butt-head find the shredded ticket pieces in order to see GWAR. Switch between characters at any time or grab a friend and explore together.

Travel through six locations in your adventure, including Burger World, the Drive-In, Highland High School, the Hospital, the Street, and the Turbo Mall 2000. Find useful objects to sell for cash, which will allow you access into certain areas, or use them to solve various puzzles throughout the game. Watch out! Whenever Beavis or Butt-head gets hurt, their "attention span" meter will get shorter. If it completely disappears, it's back to the living room and all of your items and pieces will be lost. As Beavis would say, "That sucks!"

Each level requires you, as Beavis or Butt-Head (or both if you’re playing with a friend), to avoid enemies and solve puzzles. Once you reach the end of the game, prepare to square off against the members of GWAR themselves in a showdown of epic proportions.

Based on the successful cartoon “Beavis and Butthead”, the game is very faithful to the series.

Beavis and Butt-Head features:

  • Features America’s favorite slackers, Beavis and Butt-Head
  • Four levels of action
  • The music of GWAR
  • Several characters from the popular animated TV show
  • One- or two-player capabilities

Feel crazy and a little dangerous. Try your skills at the Beavis and Butt-Head video game, based on the MTV animated series. In this action packed game, help Beavis and Butt-Head find the pieces of their shredded and scattered tickets to a GWAR concert. With music by GWAR, America’s favorite slackers are trying to get into the concert; however, they have no money to get the tickets. With their idiotic scheme set in place, the duo decide that they can get into the concert for free by taking pictures of themselves doing outrageous and dangerous, yet, cool things. As America’s favorite morons, you will guide them through four different levels, try to avoid enemies, and solve complex puzzles. In the end, square off against the members of GWAR. Released from 1994-1999 by Realtime Associates and Viacom New Media, this one to two player, teen game is compatible with SNES, Game Gear, Sega Mega Drive, and Game Boy platforms. So, take a step into the wild gaming world of Beavis and Butt-Head.

    This game is funny and there fore enjoyable. Play as beavis or butthead, you can switch whenever you want and it's also two players. But I'm sure all of this is already in the description, so let me say something different. This is a strategy game and some parts get hard because they're not obvious but that makes the game fun at the same time. And if you stuck somewhere, e-mail me and I help you and Spoiler ALERT if you can't pass the fishing pole part, e-mail me and I help you End of SPOILER Highly Recommeded by me JGCD!

    A very hard platform / Action game, Or thought the Sega version is totally differant as a sort of a point and click adventure and finding certain objects to add your quest for GWAR tickets.
