Its Bugs Bunny’s 50th Birthday and he receives an invitation to a party celebration in his honour, Bugs is very excited however his other Looney Tunes friends are not happy that they were not told about this party so they go out of their way to prevent Bugs from arriving to the party location.

The game is a basic 2D plat-former where the main goal is too get from the start to the end of every level but this is a little more ambitious than is to be expected because these levels require a little exploration and thought due to tricky enemy placements and multiple paths with often only one of them allowing you to progress further.  The games beautiful art style and colour palette help to make the game a joy to explore in order to see all of the gorgeous backgrounds and imagery.

The games enemies can do a lot of damage if they come in contact with Bugs, you cant jump on them but they can be knocked out using a mallet to hit them on the head, I never really used this myself as I found it easier to jump over the enemies and avoid them.

The boss fights are really fun to encounter because all of them are based on various Looney Tunes characters, some of the encounters you may not expect such as Sylvester Jr and Hawky.

These are all very easy however and all of them fight in a similar manner, I wish they were more creative as none of them are very memorable.

Between levels you can use the carrots you’ve collected to earn some more lives in bonus games, in one game you need to line up numbers and in the other game you need to wack multiple weasels.

The soundtrack is quite fun but its very repetitive and the same tune plays throughout worlds only changing every few levels.

Bugs Bunny’s Birthday Blowout is not a perfect game as it falls short in a few places however it is a very solid plat-former, with great controls and is overall a lot of fun to play, I do wish the boss fights and sound track were more creative but I really enjoyed everything else and I cant think of many negatives to this one, this is better quality than most licensed games and with it being quite cheap to pick up I would recommend getting a copy to check it out for yourself

8.2/10
