I wasn't that struck on the demo for toonstruck. It just seemed like an average if entertaining enough point and clicker but on seeing it in the cheapie bin at my local PC shop I thought I'd give it a go and was actually surprised to discover that my original impressions where totally misconstrued.
Toonstruck is a brilliantly conceived adventure game. The game and cutscenes are interweaved seamlessly and the story is great if slightly unoriginal. The old human gets sucked into toon world routine that we've all seen before in Roger Rabbit and Cool World. This game has touches of both, the humour is very good and theres plenty in there to keep kids and adults alike amused although some of the gags are a little adult orientated they will probably go over most kids heads.
The character voices are excellent and the characters are mostly all interesting and for the most part you actually don't mind hearing what they have to say. Not like some adventure games (discworld springs to mind) where you just want them to shut up so you can get on with the game. Christopher Lloyd is great as Drew Blanc, an animation artist who nods off on his drawing board (or does he) and gets sucked into the toon world of Fluffy fluffy Bun Bun, one of his early (sick inducingly cute) creations. Count Nefarious (Tim Curry in good form)has created a melevalator, a machine which turns everything that is cute into the epitimy of vile corruptness. Not a bad thing you might say and actually half way through the story takes a twist in that direction. You must find the objects to create a cuteifier which reverses the effects. The set peices are genuinely funny and icludes quite a few belly laughs. terribly underated, Give this game a shot, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
