Yogi Bear

Jellystone park's famous ursine resident, so smart he probably even knows what 'ursine' means, starred in his own Pirhana computer game in December 1987.

Yogi's sidekick Boo Boo has been kidnapped and Yogi must find him before it'stime to hibernate. Jellystone Park is a dangerous place, with all manner of obstacles for Yogi to jump over or duck under, but there's plenty of snacks to grab too. If Yogi manages to reach the stepping stones to Boo Boo's prison, he must take the correct route to rescue his pint-sized friend.

Although the characters in the game look great, the 'cardboard cut-out' 3-D is confusing, with dodgy collision detection making it almost unplayable. For Yogi fans only.
