Summary

Despite the title, it's good fun for all ages

The Good

Lively music, bright colors and funny renditions of characters give us an atmosphere of being trapped in a cartoon. Gameplay was a little unusual, with the ability to use your own head as a weapon (!). Difficulty level was perfect - just challenging enough without causing me to throw my controller at the television in disgust. I kept playing this one until I finished it, and that's a sign of a good one.

The Bad

The inability to go backwards presented some minor frustrations at times.

The Bottom Line

Nonsensical platform/side-scroller - not groundbreaking, but it isn't trying to be. Just a game that is fun for the sake of being fun.
