Tom And Jerry Tales

It's one of the classic and most fundamental conflicts of all time: cat versus mouse. Whenever one thinks of this traditional match-up, two particular icons leap to mind: Tom and Jerry. Now, those two titans of the chase are bound for both of Nintendo's handheld systems.

impressions

Based on the famous duo's latest television series, Tom And Jerry Tales revolves around the theory that Tom, who is a cat, wants to eat Jerry, who is a mouse. In order to facilitate this process, Tom has stolen all of Jerry's cheese and hidden it around the household and in other locales. Jerry is less than thrilled about the prospect of becoming food, but on the other hand, he's a mouse who likes his cheese enough to risk Tom's wrath and regain his stolen dairy products.

On Nintendo DS, players can control Jerry in all his 3D, cel-shaded glory. Scampering around the different rooms in order to find the cheese, Jerry has to avoid Tom, who is waiting around every corner. Just like in the real cartoon, Jerry has certain tools at his disposal to thwart Tom's ravenous ambitions, and certain touch-triggered events can activate traps to keep Jerry one step ahead of the crafty cat.

The Game Boy Advance version features 2D environments and actions, but likewise features the same challenges, which allow for the madcap mania that the series is known for.

word on the street

Tom And Jerry Tales has only just begun airing on the Kids' WB network, but Tom and Jerry have been around since the 1930s and part of countless American childhoods ever since. Each version of the game is system-specific, meaning that DS and GBA versions of the game will each offer a unique experience.

press release notes

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment gives their fans the chance to get intothe chase themselves, when the two hilarious, chase-filled Tom and Jerry Talesgames for Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS ship on October 31!

overall
