|Title: Todd's Adventures in Slime World

Synopsis: Todd and Rooney are mild-mannered go-getters who believe it is easier and more rewarding to drive a space-cruiser than to navigate a desk in some windowless office. One dreary day, it seems that a new planet has been discovered near Beta Delta and the administration feels that Todd and Rooney are perfect for the job! The mission briefing says that the blue-green giant is made of some unknown semi-liquid material, but the two gung-ho guinea pigs are out the door before they can read on. The blue-green-but-mostly-green Slime Planet's many winding tunnels and slime meanies await their next victims! That's the story from the box, and it's really not there for any other reason other than decoration, as this story isn't really in the game.
Todd and Rooney are seperated mainly by hair color, a quick way to make different characters and a method used often in the early gaming days. The game has many different modes including co-op and head-to-head. You traverse the slime tunnels of Slime World fighting various slime monsters with a pressurized water gun. As you travel, you will possibly get slimed. The more slime you get coated in, the greener you get until you pop in a slime burst. You can avoid this by walking into the water pools spread around the tunnels or by having your teammate (co-op) shoot you with the water gun. Other weapons include water and slime bombs and grenades. The music isn't really music, it's more of an ambient enviornmently gurrgling sound with some mechanical tones, and while it helps the mood of the game, it isn't very good. A 7 1/2 for originality and gameplay, the variaty of levels will keep you entertained.
