Tiny Toon Adventures for NES on this wed-NES-day

The year is 1990. After a long day at school, you come home to unwind. Turn your television on to the local syndicated cartoons as what was done at the time. What comes on but this amazing theme song…

I like to think my generation had the coolest stuff for kids, but I may be a bit biased. It definitely indeed was simpler times.

Now, at the time, it was toward the end of the run of the Nintendo Entertainment System, the console that changed gaming, perhaps forever. Games based on licenses had been very hit and miss. For every quality game like Duck Tales, you had a million games by LJN that just weren’t up to snuff.

Thankfully, as far as Tiny Toon Adventures, goes…

We were treated to what I feel is one of the top platformers on the NES. While the graphics do draw comparisons to another NES Classic, you may have heard of it, Super Mario Bros 3. However, the game stands out on his own.

Plus, it has that really catchy as heck soundtrack to add to the charming experience. It has some great platformer mechanics and amazing cartoon graphics for pretty much any era.

Social Media Memories

So, of course, I took to social media and we all discussed some of our memories of this amazing game.

That is definitely some interesting information that we should all try RIGHT NOW.

Nate is a good friend of the Geek’s, so here is his Let’s Play Video!

This is most definitely the case. The game has some fantastic animation. Definitely one of the best licensed NES games, and possibly one of the best licensed games in general.

You can certainly not go wrong with Tiny Toon Adventures.

Other Tiny Toons Adventures

So, if you can’t get enough of Tiny Toons, there are some other options…

= Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs’ Big Break (GameBoy) by Konami
– Tiny Toon Adventures Cartoon Workshop (NES) by Konami
– Tiny Toon Adventures 2: Trouble in Wackyland by (SNES) Konami
– Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster Busts Loose! (SNES) by Konami

– Tiny Toon Adventures: Wacky Stackers (Game Boy Advance) by Warthog / Conspiracy Games
– Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster’s Bad Dream (Game Boy Advance) by Treasure / Conspiracy Games

Now, the only game on this list that I have personally tried is Tiny Toon Adventures 2 for NES. I can speak to that being a quality, albeit much easier, game.

One game on that list that has intrigued the heck out of me is Buster’s Bad Dream on Game Boy Advance because it is developed by one of my favorite video game studios of all time, Treasure.

What is astonishing is that the last Tiny Toons game was released in 2002. There were only 3 seasons of the show and the last new episode aired in 1992, and the reruns stopped airing in 1995. Obviously, much of that is due to the success of both the cartoon and the amazing first game by Konami
