Sid & Al's Incredible Toons
The main characters of The Incredible Toons, AI and Sid, bear more than a passing resemblance to Tom and Jerry and the puzzles they have to complete display large helpings of the same wacky slapstick humour as the old cartoon faves. In fact, when you watch the scenes unfold once you've got the solution to a puzzle, you get the feeling you may as well be sitting in front of the box watching all the usual cartoon types kicking and clonking each other in time honoured tradition.
At the beginning of each level, you are given a task to complete with the aid of all sorts of weird and wonderful characters and contraptions. On the left of the screen you can see the objects available to help you complete the task. All you have to do is to put them in the right place at the right time and set them to perform the correct function. Then it's simply a case of sitting back and watching as your puzzle either runs to completion or, as is more often the case, turns into a complete catastrophe.
When you first look at the manual, you will be amazed at just how many parts to complete your puzzle are at your disposal throughout the game. Parts, pro-parts, handles, gadgets, Incredible Toons has got the lot. Getting to grips with all this stuff is no problem as the game has 30 tutorial puzzles to help you get the hang of what all the different parts and characters do.
The sound effects and voices for AI and Sid and the gang are an absolute scream. Even when you've completed a puzzle, you'll find yourself going back to it just to have another look at the wacky stunts and crazy cartoon animations.
With three difficulty levels from 'all brawn no brains' to 'loony bin', there's no way you'll get through this lot in a hurry. Even when you do complete all the puzzles, the Home Toons section lets you make your own. You can use all the gadgets available in the game to make your own wacky masterpieces to drive all your friends round the bend with.
All you need to enjoy Incredible Toons is a pc that meets the system specs and a sense of humour. If you've got both of these (oh yeah, and forty quid), rush out and buy this and prepare yourself for a feast of gameplay and a totally unproductive month or two.
