One of the games I loved has a kid, and was based on a cartoon show I loved was Chip and Dale Rescue Ran For those youngsters who have never heard of this cartoon it was shown in the very late 80’s to early 90’s has part of the Disney afternoon. Like Duck Tales it had a very kick ass theme song, but this time it was about the exploits of Chip and Dale who have formed their own crime fighting team called the Rescue Rangers. It was a decent enough cartoons that has aged well enough that I believe a 5 to 10 year old kid would enjoy it has much now a 5 to 10 year old kid did during the 80’s. That said there’s nothing really there too hook anyone who is an adult. But I’m here to review the video game that Capcom released for the NES do to the licenses they had with Disney at the time. And I can say has an adult this game has aged really well.

Story

The story starts off with the Rescue Rangers out to save a missing kitten and in the end beating one of Professor Nimnel machines despite the fact that he is never mention in it. Anyways the whole thing was actually a distraction set up by Fat Cat so he can kidnap Gadget, so she can make him inventions and make him a criminal master mind. Unfortunately Fat Cat the only thing this makes you is a perpetrator of 1990’s video cliché 1B kidnapping a girl in order to spur the heroes in action. The only reason it’s 1B and not 1A is there no fantasy land in jeopardy. Anyways the Rescue Rangers out to try to rescue her.


To be fair to the game you rescue Gadget a few stages away from the ending but still take a look, obviously didn’t spend any artwork on adding animations too here. She looks like a reject from the walking dead. Anyways the story is forgettable has is most early 90’s video game story’s.

Gadget Looks like a Zombie.

nothing says damsel in distress like not adding any animation to her.

Gameplay

What can I say this game taps in too the pure fun and delight of picking up boxes that may have something in them and throwing them at enemies. Yeah that’s the whole point of this game picking up stuff mainly boxes and tossing. And has simple has it sounds it’s great fun and the fact that there are secrets under half the boxes you pick up makes it even more addicting. I could spend several hours just picking them up and throwing boxes in this game it’s that fun. Beyond box throwing and enemy killing there is some platforming and it’s really good, it’s not Scrooge McDuck on a pogo stick good, but it’s still really solid with for the most part, it does lack some of the challenges in its platforming that duck tales had.


And the game is for the most part easy; there are one or two areas that can be tricky either because you have an enemy that is hard to kill with boxes. Or the game actually penalizes you for crazy box throwing but these are few and far between. The game does get credit for one thing. You get to pick your stage and you don’t have to play all of them. After you beat a stage you get pull back on to a map screen and you get to choose what stage you want to go too next. Some are dead end, some are shorter, and some are completely optional, but you get to choose which stages you want to do. For something that could be so bare bones and simple this is a really nice touch.

The over world map

This lets you choose what stages you want to do, just has long has you get too G.

Oh I did speak of bosses there ok, there not bad, but there ok. Pick up a ball and throw it at them a few times and when they die the stage is over. Still a few good ones none the less from Professor Nimnols robot too the UFO with the shape shifting aliens. When you get right down too it they are pretty decent boss battles.

If your an astute Rescue Ranger fan.

you will remember this machine from the episode Nimnol deputed, even if he isn't in the game

The game is really easy for the most part, one ups come easy enough, and the only hard part that might trip up new players is that game over sends you back to the very beginning. Experience players won’t have this happen to much but if you’re a younger gamer get prepared for that set back.

Graphics

The graphics are pretty good for the most part if you don’t count Gadget creepy artwork. Gadget aside Chip and Dale look like there right out of the cartoon series has do the robot dogs, fat cat, and the bosses you encounter I can’t really think of too many enemies that are so off model you have to go who the heck are they, ok with the exception of her and she still looks like Gadget just a mutated zombiefied one. The backgrounds for a game around that time are also nice and look pretty good.

Sound.

The sound and the music is great while it’s not Duck Tales it’s not trying to be while the Duck Tales themes were often epic Chip and Dales are more wacky and fun. Add in some great sound effects and you can’t get a better sounding game.

Final Recommendation.

I loved Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers has a kid and it’s aged like fine wine, it’s a bit on the easy side but it’s still a blast to play through. Has part of the Disney Afternoon collection it’s definitely worth playing. It’s standard price on Ebay has of this writing is about 20 dollars and I say it’s worth that amount, it might not take you long to beat it the first time but it’s a type of game that’s just a blast to play through when you half an hour to kill.
