December 2022: Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs’ Big Break (1992)

HO HO HO! I’m imitating a Santaman because it is December! The year is over! What did we do besides play Game Boy? Well, I made homemade pizza yesterday, so there’s that.

This month’s game is Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs’ Big Break

“Wow, that’s neat! A game about Babs!” You say?

WRONG. Well, sorta. It’s about Babs, but you NEVER GET TO PLAY AS HER. 

That said, it’s a Tiny Toon Adventures game and I have a real soft spot for most of them. I’m not even a huge fan of the show. I watched it as a kid and I thought it looked nice, but I didn’t think it was very funny and mostly watched it because it was on after school. However, I do like the designs. And I really, really liked the NES game. The SNES game and Genesis game furthered my love of the cartoon as a video game series. Most of the Tiny Toon games have a nice level of polish in the visuals department and this Game Boy excursion is no different. I remember it being fun, having multiple playable characters not named Babs, and helpers as well. I’m excited to play it again and see if I still find it as breezily enjoyable as I once did.

Without looking I’m going to guess this cart is in the 10-15 dollar range, so it should be pretty inexpensive to pick up. You can always emulate! Emulation is great, too!

Enjoy your holidays!
