Infogrames Goes Playstation Looney

It’s the age-old battle between Looney Tunes™ memorable adversaries Ralph Wolf™ and Sam Sheep-dog™ in Infogrames Inc.’s, Looney Tunes Sheep Raider for the PlayStation™ video game console that ships to most major retail stores this week.
As “anti-hero” Ralph Wolf, players use devious and mischievous, mission-based tactics in order to pull the wool over Sam Sheep-dog’s eyes and rustle his flock. Plenty of hilarious, inventive ACME™ gadgets are employed ­ rocket packs, umbrellas, catapults, sheep costumes, sheep perfume, and more ­ as Ralph Wolf devises ever-cleverer schemes to capture his sheeply prey.

“Looney Tunes Sheep Raider captures the unique and quirky feel of the Looney Tunes cartoons,” says Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing for Infogrames’ Beverly Label. “PlayStation owners who enjoy strategy-based games, but with a humorous twist, are going to find this game totally fresh ­ a real stand-out in the genre. We have included many of the outlandish ACME gags that made these cartoons so much fun, and players will be challenged to employ them to accomplish their sheep-snatching missions.”

In Looney Tunes Sheep Raider players must poach sheep in more than 15 levels with diverse environments. Terrain like volcanoes, deserts, swamps and scary castles provide Ralph Wolf with tons of exciting challenges. Ralph must combine and use over 25 gadgets to capture his dinner. Ralph Wolf has the ability to hide, sneak, jump, swim, creep and fly to cleverly pursue his prey. In addition, special appearances by Foghorn Leghorn™, Daffy Duck™, Porky Pig™, and many more legendary characters make this game a treat for any Looney Tunes fan.

Developed by Infogrames’ Lyon House, Looney Tunes Sheep Raider has an ESRB rating ‘E’ for Everyone and is currently available at most major retail outlets for an estimated retail price of $19.99.
