Tiny Toon Adventures - Acme All Stars -
The Tiny Toons are the brainchild of famous film producer Steven Speilberg, who like most of us is a big fan of the classic Warner Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies series of cartoon shorts. The Tiny Toons are cartoon characters in training, learning their art at Acme University under the supervision of such famous Warner toon stars as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. Of course, that doesn't mean that they don't have time to do some cutting up on their own – as the popular TV series proved....
They're tiny. They're toony. They may even be a little looney. Yet they're all available for you to play as in Tiny Toon Adventures: Acme All-Stars. Buster Bunny and his group of friends are ready to prove their sporting skills by challenging Montana Max and his cohorts to a game of basketball or soccer (both games are three-on-three contests). Up to four players can play simultaneously with a Team Player adapter, and both games use a horizontal view of the field or court.
There are several different game options. The main two games are Soccer and Basketball. Both of these options allow you to pick your own team of 4 characters and to choose their playing positions. You can then pick from 5 different sporting arenas. Play against the CPU or against a friend. The Story Mode sees a predetermined team competing at several different events at the Acme Looniversity Tournament.
Both special techniques and power shots require a certain amount of energy to perform, represented by a power gauge at the bottom of the screen. Every time you use a special move, the power gauge will decrease and you'll have to wait until it replenishes before using it again. Some of the various techniques you can use are: Buster Bunny's Two-Eared-Sky-Force-Monster-Dunk, Hamton's Rolly-Polly-Belly-Bump, Elmyra's Lovey-Dovey Shot and Shirley the Loon's Psychic Volley!
Players who tire of soccer and basketball can also compete in three different sub-games: Obstacle Course, Bowling and Bop-A-Thon (similar to Whac-A-Mole). Tiny Toon Adventures: Acme All-Stars features three difficulty settings, multiple courts and fields (Stadium, Western, Downtown and Montana Max's Playroom), and adjustable game times from two to five minutes per quarter or half.
Tiny Toon Adventures: Acme All-Stars features all the usual characters from the Tiny Toon Adventures animated series.
The twelve characters you'll be able to choose from include: Buster Bunny, Babs Bunny, Plucky Duck, Hamton, Montana Max, Elmyra, Shirley the Loon, Furrball, Fifi, Dizzy Devil, Calamity Coyote and Little Beeper. As you might expect given the license, the characters all have special techniques and power shots to use while playing.
