Beavis and Butt-head Poster

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.


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


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


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

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


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


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.


  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.
