Couldn't really say I was a huge fan of the cartoon but there was something about this game that had me and my sister hooked for months. Despite it being essentially a clone of Rock n Roll Racing, it had enough charm and gameplay to stand out on it's own.
Konami's trademark presentation and rock soundtrack all added to the fun. It took a little while to get used to the isometric viewpoint and controls but once mastered it was pure bliss to play and you could blast around the courses with a speed unusually seen on the humble SNES.
It only had 6 characters to choose from and 5 different varieties of track but there were 6 variations of each which extended the lifespan of the game. You couldn't beat playing with a friend or family member though.
Placing high in the races would earn you cash which you could use to pimp your ride which was a nice touch. What wasn't so nice was the blatant and frequent product placing of Snickers bars – be it on an advertisement board in the game or as an invincibility power-up as you raced! Even finishing a track was accompanied by your rodent rider having a good old nosh on a bar along with them spouting out some garbage about how good it tastes!
