What a boring game! The game is basically intended for kids just like the cartoons but adults are not restricted either. Tom will almost always throughout the game get his butt kicked for his mischievous behaviors. Much like in the cartoons but here the players control Jerry for different missions.
The intention of Jerry is to steal cheese and trying to get Tom kicked from the house. Just like in the previous versions, you will be familiar with the storyline if you have played them. You will also encounter other characters like Spike the dog, and the cat, Tom’s friend. You will notice that Tom is quite rigid. All in the game is so suggestive of the cartoon; you will feel like you have been taken back many years.
The house in which the game is set up in has six rooms, and each of the rooms is a level in the game. They are quite a number of modes in the game as well; Break Speed, Normal and the Timed Modes. The cutscenes happen in the Normal Mode. This is where the game is mainly focused on. In this scene the player has to guide Jerry through the room as he runs through a rail of system, as he jumps all over collecting cheese. Tom will be in trouble with Jerry at a variety of points. Here you will be presented with different commands appearing on the screen. There will be tapping, rotating wheels, scribbling in boxes and targets.
The mischievous Jerry must cause chaos by breaking things, when you fail an event it leads to another cutscene where Jerry will be causing a mess. When you get to Normal Mode and in order to unlock it, you must get a gold ranking in one of the other Modes. Jerry runs around the room, a footrace in the Timed Mode as he dodges any obstacles and he will be slowed down by the obstacles. In the Speed Mode you will encounter Jerry as he flies around the room in a jetpack. You are supposed to direct him through the colored rings so that he can collect points.
In the Break Mode Jerry will be throwing cheese at objects that are in the house, you will do this by tapping on the touch screen. You can also move Jerry to the direction you like as well as make him jump. You will find these Modes boring. The only lively mode is the Break Mode. You will find that the controls are slow whereas Jerry is a very fast animal, the way we know him from the cartoons. The Break as much is fun, it suffers from touch screen control problems; cheese that Jerry throws doesn’t always fly to where it is intended to fly. The major problem with the game is that it is too short; rather the fun bit lasts for less than twenty minutes.
