Speedy Gonzales

The fastest mouse in all of Mexico lives in SunSoft's latest GameBoy title! Race Speedy through many levels like a waterfall stage where furry creatures roam about. Speedy Gonzales must also collect cheese wheels as he races about. Since he can run so fast, there are many hazards set up, including loops that he must pass through before fans at the end blow him back around.

Game Reviews

The fastest mouse in cartoons is now the fastest mouse in hand-held games. Armed with only his lightning-fast speed and high-flying jumps, Speedy Gonzales has made a successful transition to the small screen. On the Game Boy, Speedy uses his natural abilities to go up against the mousenapper, King Rat, and his army of tricky creatures.

A Mexican Tail

To save his mousenapped friends, the Speedster must race past the hostile Eskimos of frozen Icelandia to a bandito-filled Mexican Town, then on through a crazy forest, a burning desert, and deadly countryside before reaching his final confrontation with King Rat in his Cheese Island Castle. Along the way, Speedy is blown backward by Blowing Fans, pushed forward by Sonic-type Springs, carried across water by friendly Whales, and attacked by all kinds of wild animals. It's a fun, frantic trip. SunSoft has essentially created Mr. Mouse's Wild Ridel

Nimbly maneuvering through the obstacle-filled lands, Speedy can easily pick up wheels of Cheese to fortify himself and gain extra points. Because he's only a tiny mouse, Speedy loses a life every time he's barely touched by an enemy, a spike, or a water drop. He starts and stops quickly, but sometimes his great speed works to his disadvantage, like when Speedy races out of a loop so fast that you don't have time to react to the next obstacle.

The special effects of this game are up and down. The graphics are strong, but there aren't enough sound effects (the screech of hard-braking Speedy is the best). However, the music is suitably frantic for the game's quick pace.

The Fastest Feet in the West

If you're looking for a rapid race through six challenging levels, you'll find lots to like in the company of Speedy Gonzales, the fastest animal this side of a certain hedgehog.

ProTips:

  • Don't dawdle on the Melting Blocks of Icelandia. Instead, skip the Cheese to get across before Speedy takes the plunge. P> * To defeat Level I's Walrus Boss, Speedy must Jump directly onto his head four times without falling off the ice floe.
