Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs' Big Break is a platformer video game based on the Tiny Toons cartoon developed and published by Konami for the Game Boy on 1992-02-01.

In the game, Babs has gone to the Acme Theatre to become an actress, but Montana Max plans on turning it into his own private vault. You play as Buster, Hampton, and Plucky who work together to defeat Montana Max's henchmen and foil his plans.

I played this game after seeing it highly ranked on lists of the best Game Boy games. I ended up beating it the very first time I played it.

Best Version: Game Boy

— This section contains spoilers! —

Good

  • The graphics are large, well-drawn, and thematic to the series.
  • Konami really crammed a lot of Tiny Toons characters into the game.
  • The mini games are fun and give nice breaks from the levels.
  • The music is fitting, incorporating the show's theme song, jazzy numbers, and even classical songs common to the cartoon.

Bad

  • Each of the three playable characters are very similar, only their weapon functions differently. It would have been nice to give each slightly different movement abilities.
  • The game runs at a very low frame rate. It's like you're playing in slow motion.
  • Despite giving each level its own graphics, the bulk of it felt too similar.
  • It's pretty easy to farm lives in the mini games, especially the race game, and, as such, the game is very easy to beat.

Ugly

  • Despite the game being called "Bab's Big Break" you never play as Babs; she merely acts as a plot device for the male characters.
