Even though I absolutely despised the NES version of the game, I wanted to see if the SNES version held up any better. The SNES was by far a more powerful system, so maybe hardware could save this clunker.
Granted it kinda does. It no longer looks like middle school art done on a computer from 1982. It actually looks very sharp, clean, and colorful. The game no longer has Bullwinkle throwing stuff, but his quest turns more into a platformer such as climbing a brutal mountain. Honestly it is brutal, despite the game getting “better” there’s a lot of stuff on top of this mountain that are almost impossible to avoid. No matter how many times I tried, Bullwinkle just would not stop falling off the mountain.
If you’re not a fan of the main adventure, there is also two mini-games that are in fact pretty good starring other major characters from the show. But mini-games can’t save a bad game regardless of their quality. The SNES version of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends may not be an unplayable mess like its NES counterpart, but it’s not exactly a game I would call very fun to play.
Score: 4 out of 10
