Description

Tom & Jerry is a side-scrolling platform game in which the famous cartoon characters are the main characters. Tom has mouse-napped Jerry's nephew Tuffy, and has him in the attic.

Playing Jerry, you must move through various levels of the house to reach, and free Tuffy. Jumping and running to move around and avoid obstacles, Jerry is also armed with a pocket full of marbles which he can throw at enemies (such as spiders or toy soldiers). He can also use mouse holes to get teleported around the level.

He can also pick up power-ups which can give him more lives, and stronger throws, etc.
