Summary

Nice little game, but also a little disappointing

The Good

The graphics, in high quality (for the time) VGA graphics are great.

The music is fast paced and fits in with this game. Although that's the only sound you'll be hearing in this game (and in the sound card selection I'd recommend Ad lib, Sound Blaster, or Roland sound as your options. PC Speaker is annoying).

The gameplay in this game is pretty good, you run around New York avoiding Harry and Marv while luring them into traps such as pedestrians, cars, and setting off traps yourself

This game has some replayability, you can choose difficulty(which determines how fast Harry and Marv are) and has a high score table, so you can challenge your friends for the highest score.

The Bad

The game is a bit short. There are 15 levels in this game, that may sound long but the levels are very short. Along with that the game's faithfulness to the movie is rather dubious.

There is no sound except for a few songs looping in the background (varies between the level). Other than these a good game.

The controls are absurd!. You press 0 to jump! Enter to use a weapon and space to pick weapons up!

The Bottom Line

I do recommend you play this game, it's good to kill 10-15 minutes. Great fun if you love Home Alone 2.
