The video game instructions and box may not be included. Unlike the first game, this is more or less a traditional action game and less of a giant scavenger hunt, and the enemies here are not the minor nuisance they were the first time around. Home Alone 2 has you back playing as Kevin. Marv and Harry arrive separately at the two entrances to the house. This one is about 20 minutes, but it could be a challenge to some people. L and R cycle through your weaponry, as does Select.
It helps that Home Alone 2 is no longer a frustrating scavenger hunt and is instead a generic point-A-to-point-B side-scrolling action game. Most of the time, they are hidden in certain objects, but other times they have them on screen. Each trap can only be triggered once and they all inflict the same amount of damage. Also, there is a toy dart gun which is very effective and two weird fist guns. Turtle doves are a jump power that can take out a number of foes. The game starts with one difficulty level, but a harder one can be unlocked. No further setting of traps is possible after this period.
Once again, not a terrible game by any means, but like the movies, the first one is the better one though both movies are watchable and funny. Marv and Harry bring reinforcements this time to nab the kid that sent them to jail. Each gun has a specific amount of ammunition, but collecting other ammo items after the completion of certain guns will refill the ammo supply. When this happens, Kevin must fight them off with different weapons and guns in order to fill up an empty Pain Meter; when he does so, he will have saved that particular house and cause the Bandits to retreat. Kevin is represented very accurately and has really smooth animation movement. If only more Super Nintendo games from this time sounded so complex! In the bonus levels one on each six , however, the Wet Bandits and pets are absent.
It was not thought up well. That being said, it is far from putrid. This is more of a pure side scroller and it takes place in parts that were in the film, just with different ideas. His gaming prime revolved around the Nintendo 64, and he never questioned the logic of a controller with three handles. The weaponry is far from creative, but useful.
This game can be rather frustrating at times, between the precision it takes to make jumps at certain times and the simple fact that basically everything under the sun is out to get you. This time it seems a whole city is out for Kevin. Sound effects are pretty basic. They got Harry down somewhat, but Marv looks like some other guy than Daniel Stern. Outside of that, it plays decent. Controlling the boy hero is virtually the same.
Three stars out of five. Other weird ones include suitcases and mops. Enemies look a lot less cartoonish although most of the enemies are quite cartoonish by nature , and somewhat resemble normal, proportional human beings instead of caricatures. After securing the fourth safe, the player also has to eliminate the furnace referring to a point in the movie where Kevin has to conquer his fear of the basement furnace. They consist of going through areas, beating a boss and making your way to the next level.
There are also whole pizzas that are instant extra lives as well. If all the houses end up flooded, the game is over. Item in photo may not match exact item you receive. Most licensed games during the 16-bit era can be done in less than an hour, typically 40 minutes. Home Alone is a single title from the many , and offered for this console. This is especially true for some of the Nintendo versions. In each house, there is also a dog or a cat.
Guess who's all alone again. Digitized images are used on the characters in cutscenes and are a big improvement over the first game. Kevin can also hide behind certain parts of the house, but only for two consecutive turns; any other concurrent passings will result in a game over. The former can take out an enemy in one to maybe three shots and the latter can take out someone in one to maybe two shots. The story of the game follows the film somewhat.
