Beauty and the Beast moves along at a fast clip, and the graphics are very arcade-like. The characters are nicely detailed, but Mabel is hardly a beauty. She looks more like a blue Martian.

Seinen Tod kann man aber hinauszögern indem man herabfallende Herzen aufsammelt, die den Spieler für kurze Zeit unverwundbar machen können. Dies wird durch optisch und auch akustisch am Bildschirm angezeigt. Grafisch kann der Titel wirklich sehr überzeugen. Der Spielablauf ist flott und die Grafik wurde mit Liebe zum Detail erstellt. Sogar eine animierte Drehtür auf dem Erdgeschoss ist erkennbar. Auch bei den Soundeffekten und bei der Musik gibt’s nix zu meckern.

Graphisme agréable et assez fouillé, animation réussie, cette adaptation originale et amusante du jeu d'arcades a toutes les chances de devenir un succès !

Ein ansprechender Mattscheiben-Spaß!
Beauty & the Beast is a challenging game that should provide you with some enjoyment. It can get repetitive because you must continually scale the same building, but the action does get increasingly more difficult.
It takes 20/20 peripheral vision to anticipate and avoid the rocks and other flak, as well as a sharp eye and quick trigger finger to time your leaps precisely. The running, dodging and evasive action, as well as the burning curiosity to know just what awaits you on the next level, definitely maintain the interest level. This is no game for acrophobes.

You may have noticed that I like to complain a lot in my reviews, even if I really like the game I'm discussing. This is definitely the case here. Out of all the Intellivision games I picked up at a yardsale a few months ago, this one is my favorite, though possibly because it is one of the few I was able to figure out. Obviously if you’re looking for a game with the magical dancing candles and the cute baby teacup, you’re not gonna find it here; but if you’re looking for a game that is MOST CERTAINLY NOT a Donkey Kong clone, Intellivision’s Beauty & the Beast is for you. (And if you’re even playing Intellivision games to begin with, chances are you don’t care about graphic and/or sound quality, hence why I’ve declined to discuss them here. I’m sure you were all worried that I’d actually forgotten to discuss two very important aspects of the game; rest assured that it just doesn’t matter.)
