TC's arrived to join the rest of the Hanna- Barbera computerised cartoon characters with Beverly Hills Cats. In this action packed cartoon adventure you take control of TC and have to explore three interlinked levels looking for members of your gang, objects to help you and milk bottles to top up your energy.

The object of the game is to rescue poor Benny The Ball from the clutches of an evil butler and find the rightful heir to an old lady's fortune. You start in the alley, inhabited by vicious skateboarders, hedgehogs with sharp spikes and exploding bombs. Walking around the semi-30 screens is soon mastered and you can get down to solving the puzzles. The other two levels are Beverly Hills and the mansion, each with their own puzzles and nasties.

There are plenty of objects to pick up, even rubbish is useful - you get extra points for putting it in the bin. Be careful what you're putting in your pocket though, there are rotten apples and sour milk which eat away at your all important energy.

The game is visually very good with recognisable characters and a lot of colour, even it it's a little blotchy in places. The initial puzzles are not very difficult, but they do get harder the further into the game you get. Top Cats In Beverly Hills Cats is another great game from Hi-tec All fans of the cartoon will love it.
