Although the slow and steady action of THQ's Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle may not satiate the appetite of a really hungry advanced NES gamer, the lack of continues in this game give it enough challenge to provide a good snack for middle-of-the-road players.
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends is one of the best examples of terrible games for the NES, and one of the worst by THQ. It may in fact be the worst as far as I remember, but I won't until I play the other ones. There's nothing here at all worth checking out, no graphics, no sound, no gameplay, no logic, nothing, just stay away, there's nothing else to stay, don't play it.
If this game has any edge, it is the option to control either the dumb founded moose (Bullwinkle) or his sensible squirrel pal (Rocky). Rocky is clearly the better fit as he can fly short distances to avoid most oncoming dangers. Bullwinkle’s ability to ram is hardly notable due to the horrid collision detection. Even so, both control like a car lacking four wheel drive on icy roads. Most jumps are leaps of faith (in this case I use the word "faith" quite loosely) and bomb tossing is practically a wasted effort as the desired target is constantly in motion and they rarely detonate on impact. Best of luck to anyone who is bored enough to complete this dreadful game. While THQ may not be the pitiful development team they once were (rest in peace Acclaim), R&B will always be a constant reminder to them that the past, while gone, is not easy to forget. Stick to watching the cartoon folks, at least that is educational.
