Games Based On Cartoons!
« on: May 29, 2013, 18:56:50 PM »
So what are your favourite games based on the cartoons we used to watch as kids (and probably still do!)

My first pick and one that many people probably don't realise is based on a cartoon is Pac-Land, I loved the TV series so when I first saw the coin-op when I was on holiday at Butlins in Margate I was ecstatic!

I don't think I was a kid when I used to watch this but I still loved the TV show Gargoyles and the game based on the show that was released for the Sega MD / Genesis.

Thundercats - Atari ST

It's not a great game, it's just a Rastan and Rygar clone, but it was one of the games I got with my ST so I have good memories of playing it:

Thundercats Atari ST

It does have some brilliant title music by Rob Hubbard though:

Have Wacky Races on DC, looks superb, handling is fine, just found it utterly tedious to play, seems to lack that spark, if that makes sense? just found it kinda cold.

Thunder! Thunder! Hey that Thundercats has some good tunes.

Your welcome, Shadowrunner. I was going to include Battletoads and Busby. Sadly, both games only had one cartoon special. Cadillac and Dinosaurs was another that I played a few times on the Sega CD.

I understand Rogue Trooper. I know the 3DO games are Japanese releases and playing the Nintendo DS version requires blowing into the system. When I first played Wacky Races DS, strange looks were all to common. :)

Always wanted to try the C64 game based on Danger Mouse, by Creative sparks, only never saw a copy and it only scored 30% in zzap, so probably just as well i never did find a copy.

Thanks. I remember Count Duckula who was closer to Quackula.
