Tumble Pop's a familiar-looking little cart. You use your handy dandy Vaculator to tumble and pop monsters 'til they're history. This side-view action/adventure game is veiy similar to Snow Brothers and Bubble Bobble. In each single- screen stage, you leap across from platform to platform, sucking up monsters and other pesky creatures and grabbing the standard power-ups that they leave behind.
Ray modes include a two-player Versus Mode, where each gamer tries to be the first to exterminate a set number of monsters. Several variables, including a time limit, can be changed to make the game play more interesting. A Construction Mode enables gamers to create and save up to three custom Tumble Pop stages.
Tumble Pop's nothing new, but fans of this type of game will find its cutesy graphics and mildly entertaining game play a nice way to while away a few hours.
