REAL GAMES - ACME ANIMATION FACTORY

Fuck yeah!  A "game" that I can use my mouse from Mario Paint with!  I knew that wasn't a complete waste of money.  Now if I could just find some more games to use my Super Scope 6 with, I'll be set.

So what is ACME Animation Factory?  Well, it's a Mario Paint knockoff that is set in the Looney Tunes world.  What's Mario Paint?  Mario Paint was the Adobe Flash of Super Nintendo.  It came with a 2 button mouse peripheral and a solid mouse pad that you could use to draw and animate your work, make music, play a mini game, or just paint an assortment of pictures.  The same is true for this game as well, minus the peripherals.

Think your mouse pad is cool?  Mine can stop a bullet.
The game presents us with the Looney Tunes theme at the beginning, and never shuts up.  We also have similar options as Mario Paint: paint, animate, game, and music.  There isn't really a lot to discuss here, so lets just dive in.

Controls are awesome as long as you are using the mouse. Otherwise, this game would be horrendous to play.  Point and click, pretty simple stuff.  The only downside that I have found is while drawing.  The mouse pointer becomes a pencil, but the part that actually draws is an x that appears up and to the right of the pencil.  Not a big deal, but it does interfere with my artistic talent.

The constant sound looping is death on the ears.  Imagine an annoying polka song being looped for ever.  Now, imagine that same song being played in midi format.  The only escape from this is the music maker part, in which you can make your own song to jam out to.  I tried to create the ACME rendition of Dragonforce - Through the Fire and Flames, but I guess I'm not metal enough.  If you want to see the Mario Paint version, check it out HERE. Haha...sorry, I couldn't resist.  The real Mario Paint version is Here.  That guy is insane.

If I was to judge this game graphically, it would be based on my own ability to draw.  Therefore, this game is graphically superior to every game...ever.  However, if we look at the graphics presented within the game, it still ranks pretty high.  From the sprite animations to the coloring book pages, everything is top notch.

Choke on this, Photoshop.
Unfortunately, the only way to rate the "play" value of this game would be to base it on the mini game.  It sucks.  Mario Paint had an awesome flyswatter game with varying levels of difficulty and even a boss battle.  With ACME, we're given a crappy version of the memory game.  However, if we can judge it based on its other features, it still comes off as a straight knockoff that offers no originality.

Overall, this is not a game, and thus it is hard to rate.  If you're interested in this type of stuff, stick with Mario Paint.  It's better in ever aspect.  Therefore, I'm giving this game 2 bongo playing Tazs out of 5.

Since there is no real end to this, here's a shot of a perfect round of the Memory Game.

only 2 bongo playing taz?

Classically Trained Nub said... [Reply]

@ilikeicecream - the reason it only gets 2 bongos is because this game requires you to purchase Mario Paint for the peripherals. The game itself looks great, but it is still just a sprite change from Mario to Bugs Bunny. If a company is going to make me buy another game just in order to play their game, they better not be the exact same game.
