Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure (Sega Mega Drive / Genesis review)

Developer: Konami
Publisher: Konami
Released: 1993

Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure is a platformer that's exclusive to Sega's 16-bit console.

+ Interesting stage layouts and each typically features areas below ground, as well as in the sky for more perilous platforming.

+ Unconventional level design ideas, such as being able to immediately see the exit, yet needing to work out the correct route.

+ Map / secret exits resemble Super Mario World (1991, SNES) and the wall jump mechanic is great for avoiding hazards.

+ Excellent controls allow you to carefully manoeuvre in mid-air, as well as being able to adjust your vertical jumping distance.

+ Packs a decent challenge, but special attacks even the odds and can be stockpiled throughout each level for strategic use.

- Map screen could be a little clearer and more immediately intuitive in showing you which levels you've beaten / not unlocked.

- Boss battles are rather unimaginative and task you with repeating the same basic attack pattern several times to advance.
