The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle (in Japan) is an action puzzle video game made by Kemco released on the NES starring the popular Warner Brothers cartoon character Bugs Bunny and was first released in 1989. The object of the game is to guide Bugs through a series of rooms collecting carrots to save Honey Bunny. However, four rascals are guarding the castle: Sylvester, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, and Wile E. Coyote. An early beta version of the game shows the working title as Bugs Bunny Fun House.
A sequel, The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 2, was released for the Game Boy in 1991.
While presented in a side-scroller format
, Crazy Castle
differed from standard side-scrollers such as Super Mario Bros.
in that Bugs Bunny did not have a jump function; therefore, only by taking different routes could Bugs avoid enemies. Some of the levels had boxing gloves
, invincibility potions, safes
, flower pots
, or ten-pound weights
that could be used against the enemies in the game. As a result, the game had a "puzzle-solving" atmosphere.
Because most NES game cartridges lacked the ability to save, passwords can be used to start at a certain level in this game.
The US and European games were modified versions of the Japanese Famicom Disk System
game Roger Rabbit
. Roger Rabbit is the game's playable character, all the villains are all Who Framed Roger Rabbit
-related, and hearts are collected.
