Summary

Be quick, or you die.

The Good

The sense of speed. You better be quick in Teddy boy. When you shoot a creature with your gun, they are miniaturized into a little ball. If you don't make contact with it quickly, it changes into a parasite that eats your timer. And if that's not enough, being stuck in a room full of Den Den's is enough to cause a panic attack for as fast as they move. It may also be the only game that awards points for finding cigarettes in the bonus rounds.

The Bad

Teddy boy is another deceptive cutesy-looking game that is just mean. It may be a little too hard for it's own good.

The Bottom Line

Overall, Teddy Boy is an above-average platformer because of it's mix of elements and unique gameplay. Instead of the usual "hop-n-bop" titles this genre is full of, it innovates on the idea you can't just simply jump on his head to stop him, or simply shooting the creature dosen't stop him either. There are two parts to the game where you must prioritize either going after the next guy and risk running out of time, or assuring you wipe out all the bad guys and get chased all over the place in the process.
