A Game of Titanic
Crown Yakko, Wakko, and Dot as kings and queen of the world
of Animaniacs: A Gigantic Adventure. The Warner Brothers and Sister are trying
to rescue lost movie classics, and they're starting their search on an old
luxury liner set at the studio. But watch out for the CEO of Warner Bros.,
Thaddeus J. Plotz! He hid the films and will do anything to keep them hidden.
You'll help the Animaniacs through the bridge, first class dining rooms and
onto the iceberg. And if they avoid the villainous crew members, they'll get a
chance to explore other sets on the Warner Bros. backlot.
Play as Yakko, Wakko and Dot and experience their zaniness
first hand through three difficulty levels that will challenge everyone from
the novice to the side-scrolling expert.

Just Adventure, by Randy Sluganski
"...I wish to state for the record that Animaniacs - A
Gigantic Adventure is without a doubt the best side-scrolling platform game
created exclusively for the PC that I have played (and I have tried them
"For those who fondly remember the controlled, calculating
mayhem of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and their cohorts, well, forget it, the
Animaniacs are all of these characters combined - on a sugar high. The
animation and joking references to popular foibles are a throwback to the glory
days of big studio cartoon extravaganzas from the 1930s and '40s, but this is
the lunacy of a new generation. These are colorful, spastic characters
desperately in need of a sedative for their nerves and our sanity..."
"All of this craziness occurs over eleven levels of 3D
environments that run the gamut from the different ship levels to movie sets
based on such famous films as 'Jurassic Pickings,' 'Invasion Earth' and
'Frank's Stein.' Hidden rooms and warp levels add to the replay value, as does
the ability to play at the three difficulty levels of easy (my level), medium
and hard. The game supports the keyboard, joystick or gamepad and the reaction
time from a peripheral is instantaneous, the best of any PC game I have played.
The one feature that will really make Animaniacs stand apart from its
console counterparts will be the ability to compete against other players on
the Internet's MSN Gaming Zone..."
