Starring Looney Tunes legends Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester and Taz theTasmanian Devil, this 'loon-atic' game allows up to four players to assume the identity of their favourite character. Each one has their own unique personality and attributes, and 'Fight for Fame' by using an arsenal of classic cartoon ACME traps and props such as custard pies, falling anvils and instant storms. Out-dancing, out-performing, out-fighting and plain flat-out upstaging their opponents through a series of interactive movie sets, the Bugs, Daffy and co. battle it out to become the number one superstar by disrupting other players 'acting' and ensuring they alone bathe proudly in the spotlight.

Overseeing their, umm, acting exploits is the director of the piece, Yosemite Sam. Not exactly known for his patience and understanding at the best of times, the player must display to the short-tempered director that they are worthy of the accolade of star performer, and be prepared to accept his stinging criticisms in the form of advice on how they might improve their acting technique.

Loons: The Fight for Fame combines all the elements of classic Looney Tunes humour with pastiches and tributes to a multitude of Hollywood blockbusters, past and present, to provide a truly innovative and unorthodox gaming experience. In addition, the Behind the Scenes mini-game features on each level will appeal to all players, whether veterans or new gamers, as they are based on retro games and are perfect for a 'quick fix' or for reliving a few memories from all those years spent hanging around the arcade.
