Hollywood Or Bust

Not one of Mastertronic's better efforts. You wander around a large film set looking for five Oscars. You're harassed by cops and ghosts and occasionally chased out on to the street for a Keystone Cops sequence. You have custard pies to fight with. Simple gameplay, yukky graphics but a jolly tune.


Graphics 42%
P. Large animated characters.
N. Very blocky design.

Sonics 65%
P. Jolly tune throughout game.

Grab Factor 36%
P. Challenging exploration/mapping task.
N. Only one life and too easy to die.

Staying Power 30%
N. Just exploring and the odd bit of pie-throwing.

Overall 39%
Cheap... but not very cheerful.
