He was resting when I entered the large, windowless room. Oil canisters littered the grimy floor and spiders hung from cobwebs in the farthest corners. As I took out my notebook, I sensed that I was in the presence of a hero.
Arnie was a special character - unique. Bright red with a smiling face, he was in fact a cartoon car. Just in case you are not an expert on cars who are Toons, they are intelligent, independent, and incredibly smooth.
I questioned Arnie about the task ahead and he explained in his soft, gentle voice: "I've got to defeat Captain Grim. He has gone too far this time. I am gonna get him! I am gonna demote him! I am gonna ki...".
I could tell he was keen to get at Grim! Maybe. Let me explain more clearly.
Grim has spread his evil throughout the land and captured a number of Arnie's friends. Arnie has to drive over the ground Grim has descrated. By jumping from platform to platform, the levels can eventually be cleared of Grim's evil. However, a number of Loony Toons are intent on preventing you from completing your mission. They roam the many platforms, trying to kill you.
Fortunately, you can collect various means of defence by running into Icons. These include oil slicks, smoke screens, a gun, mortar bombs, smart bombs and more.
By collecting a specific series of icons you will be rewarded in other ways. B.O.N.U.S. significantly improves your score, while E.X.T.R.A. gives you more lives.
After travelling specific distances you will have a chance to rescue one of your friends before continuing on to the next scenario. Here the Loony Toons become more frequent, and their level of deviousness increases frighteningly.
With 48 levels and eight different areas to drive through, there are difficult times ahead. Only a Toon of immense skill and stamina will survive to cleanse the world of evil. Only Arnie can defeat Captain Grim!
