Power Play (Oct, 1988)
Toobin' ist ein Automat, in den man sich glatt verlieben könnte. Die zahllosen Gags am Rande sind einfach zauberhaft. Neben viel Spielwitz besticht Toobin' auch durch grafische Kabinettstücke. Tolle Musik und glasklare Soundeffekte untermalen das Spielgeschehen hervorragend. Leider sind etliche Markstücke fällig, bis man sich an die ungewöhnliche Steuerung gewöhnt hat.

Toobin's' graphics are a laugh, with plenty of funny little details strewn about the downward scrolling field of play. But it's the totally addictive playability that really gets you hooked. When all the giggling's over, this cutesy little game is actually a fairly rigorous challenge, with beginners strongly advised to resist the temptation to speed along until they've got their paddling skill up to a fairly high standard. I don't know who managed to think up the idea, but I'm quite glad they did.
The paddling sounds are annoying, but a peppy soundtrack and a nice variety of other sound effects compensate. Toobin' is an enjoyable diversion at its competitive best when played against a human opponent. During the time of the game's release, Atari rewarded players who found all the hidden letters (spelling out TOOBIN) with a T-shirt.
