Crazy Chase - SNES, 30/3/95


So rarely these days are we graced with an original game - particularly so when it comes to the 16-bits.

Therefore Crazy Chase, with its isometric clown antics, swept through our legs like a pine needle tossed on a nougat-scented gust of alpine air.

Kid Klown must race through five stages to stifle a big bomb. Characteristic of such scenarios, nasty men will attempt to hurt him with blades and rocks.

Though undeniably smooth in control stakes, Crazy Chase excels when it comes to graphics - notably in the depiction of Kid Klown's misfortunes.

From shaking soot from his reddened flesh to piercing his tiny feet on sharp spikers, the Klownster is deliciously animated.

Likewise the levels, which are among the loveliest seen on the SNES.

Ultimately, though, the game is a little on the easy side. What a shame.
