  1. A slightly above average children's platforming game that delivers a fair amount of fun. Its good points are that it is an easy and enjoyable gaming experience, its negative aspects are that it just could have been so much more, while yet maintaining its ease of play.
  2. The missions, based on TV-show episodes, are loaded with laughs and kooky inventions. [Nov 2004, p.130]
  3. It just doesn’t do anything particularly interesting to warrant playing through unless you’re a diehard fan of the series.
  4. Well Timmy, after going with you through the course of the game, I saw many things. I saw graphics that just weren’t that great. Voice acting that, while somewhat funny, oftentimes felt forced or the acting was uneven. I saw stages that changed the gameplay too little from level to level.
  5. 50
    Doesn’t offer more than the bare minimum. It squeaks by with bland, tired game mechanics and graphics that just don’t hold up to today’s gamer.
