Bugs Bunny’s Birthday Blowout (1990) Review

Bugs Bunny Birthday Blowout - Label

Bugs bunny’ s Birthday Blowout is video for the Nintendo Entertainment System, it was developed by Kemco and was one of the last games released for the NES before the release of the Super Nintendo.

Bugs Bunny Birthday Blowout (Nintendo Entertainment System)

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

Gravity Falls Review

3190_gravity_fallsGravity Falls was a hit cartoon series created by Alex Hirsch for the Walt Disney Channel, it first aired in 2012 and it has now finally concluded at the beginning of 2016, the show about a brother and a sister spending the summer in a mysterious town became very popular amongst millions of viewers and Gravity Falls soon became known for its quality, I have now seen the entire series and I am ready to share my opinion.

Twins Dipper and Mabel Pines are spending their summer vacation with Stanley Pines (Great Uncle), They are spending the summer in a mysterious town called Gravity Falls, where Stanley is making them work at his business the Mystery Shack where he guides tourists through a fake museum of mythical creatures and mysterious artifacts, Dipper soon gets bored of this and decides to go and explore the town while his sister Mabel is seeking romance, Dipper accidentally discovers a Journal which is filled with mysterious legends and secrets which may help uncover the dark secrets and hidden mysteries of Gravity Falls.

Apart from the few episodes that really expand on the shows main plot, alot of the episodes can be watched out of order without many consequences as a big portion of the show is just Mabel and Dipper going on adventures and trying to resolve a problem they have discovered in Gravity Falls, most of these problems can be resolved by someone searching for the answers in one of the journals image

When the show does focus on the main plot its hard to not get glued to the tv, for a Disney Channel show it’s surprisingly addictive and many of the non plot themed episodes are full of cryptic clues to some of the towns mysteries image

All of the main cast are very lovable. but surprisingly almost every character in the entire show has a personality and some even have interesting backstories, personally my favourite character is Mabel Pines but my favourite background character is Blendin Blandin a time traveler you will meet in season 1

Gravity falls is one of the best looking children’s cartoon shows I have seen in a very long time, the animation is smooth and the pixels are at a minimum so the show looks absolutely flawless, I highly recommend watching it in HD so you can truly appreciate it’s beauty.

Overall Gravity Falls was one of best animated series I have ever had the pleasure of sitting down and watching, it is a little sad that the show has finished but I know for a fact that the fandom the show had brought together will be around for a long time.

I hope you enjoyed this review of Gravity Falls

Birthday Cake M and M’s Review

DSC_0076

 

When I saw that you could get Birthday Cake flavoured M and M’s I was immediately confused because birthday cake is not a flavour, yeah you eat it on someone’s birthday but the cake is always a certain type of cake such as chocolate, sponge, carrot etc, at least that’s how things tend to work in the UK.

You may not be able to notice in the above picture but compared to original M and M’s the Birthday Cake M and M’s are almost double in size and they only come in a variety of three colours Red, Yellow and Blue

underneath the shell lies the usual Milk Chocolate that you will find inside of  any other M and M’s  candy but what surprised me the most was the flavour of the chocolate because it legitimately tastes like chocolate cake, the chocolate cake flavour is actually quite amazing because you get the obvious taste of chocolate but you also get a surprising fruity flavour that tastes very similar to the jam that you find in between the layers of most cakes.

Birthday Cake M and M’s really surprised me, I expected that they would have hardly any cake flavour at all and that they would be nothing but a cheap product that M and M’s put together to make a quick buck, but too my surprise there was a large quantity in the single packet I bought and they legitimately taste like chocolate cake.

Birthday Cake M and M’s are great and I really wish that they were sold in the UK 10/10

Thank you for reading my review of Birthday Cake M and M’s

If you respect my opinion, I will respect yours
