There's nothing Rocky Rodent would father do than eat - especially pizza froth Rose's Italian Eatery. Unfortunately, Pie Face Balboa, the restaurant's owner, hasn't been paying his protection money to the Mob, and they've kidnapped his daughter, Melodyl.

Rocky takes the news personally for two reasons. First of all, he's the one who ate the mail that included the bill for protection. And second, Melodyl is the pizza cook! Pie Face offers him free food if he brings back Melodyl, so soon Rocky's on the case. Of course, the Mob's a tough organization to tackle, even for a healthy young rodent. Luckily, Rocky has a few tricks up his sleeve. One is his tremendous speed - he can outrun anything short of that blue hedgehog! He also totes a mean arsenal of hairdos that enable him to climb, swing like Tarzan, or even hurl blades. Dryers, clippers, and other hair-care implements can be found in garbage cans throughout the game; they provide Rocky with the latest in designer do's - his tools of destruction.

A solid game with good action and an innovative premise, Rocky Rodent is the cat's meow.

Hair-raising!

People say:

8.0

Despite the appearance of another Sonic rip-off, Rocky Rodent comes off remarkably well! Rocky has style and character - especially with his many hair styles that can be used as weapons! Despite some rather difficult levels, Rocky's many techniques and "weapons" can be mastered with practice. Just love Rocky's yell!

8.0

Quite a surprise! Rocky Rodent looked like a standard fair side-scroller but once you play, you realize just how much technique really is involved. Sporting all kinds of kooky hair styles gives you a variety of choices to get you through the long and sometimes difficult levels. Just don't let his flapping tongue scare you.

7.0

Attacking enemies with different kinds of hair styles might sound pretty stupid, but once you get into the game, you'll realize it actually is pretty decent. So what if it's a Sonic clone, the super huge levels are welcome and the graphics and sound are fantastic. Give credit to Irem for coming out with an exceptional game. Cool hair.

7.0

These Sonic rip-offs are really getting cranked out. Sure the character is weird and the hairdo power-ups are original, but there aren't enough extra items or hidden areas to compete with the biggies. The levels can get really hard, especially once you lose your hair with one hit. It's a fun game to play but it's no Sonic or Mario.
