Finally, a licensed GBC release for kids that strives to be more than a crappy action/platformer. This unconventional adventure game may well be the best handheld Loony Tunes cart on the market. It's cool to see these classic characters being put into a package that's well thought-out, ambitious and meticulously designed. Taking a cue from Pokemon, this title allows you to collect familiar figures from the Warner Bros animated universe, trade them with friends via a link cable, and use them in completing your top-down quest. You can carry a total of 14O) at one time, and each has a unique set of skills--Marvin can shoot a laser gun, Speedy can enter mouse holes, etc. The stages are vast, the characters are well-animated, and the gameplay is diverse...but regrettably, the whole thing is lacking a bit in the "fun" department. Mission objectives are clear cut and easy to follow, and carrying them out can get a bit tedious. Still, it's one of the better GBC games out there. And if you have a buddy who owns a copy, you'll dig all of the multiplayer options.
