'Crazy Chase' (GBA) - Facts & Screens

by Rainier on Feb. 1, 2002 @ 12:52 a.m. PST

"Crazy Chase" is an action packed game with 16 stages. While following an asymmetrical scrolling parcours, the hero Kid Klown has to evade traps, enemies and nasty surprises by jumping, roller-skating and by using special items. There are hundreds of hidden items and bonus areas. There are also four mini games (airhockey, darts, Punch-the-Mole, ball game) to be mastered. The superb character animation features hilarious facial expressions.

"Crazy Chase" is the remake of the classic game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) from 1994. Eleven of the 16 stages are exclusively designed for the GBA version.

One day the King said to Kid Klown: "Rumors are rampant that Space Pirate Dirty Joe plans to kidnap my sweet Princess Honey. Kid, I want you to protect
her! I think you can do it, even if it's halfwitvs. half-wit!”

But against all odds, Dirty Joe succeeds and kidnaps the Princess. While Joe escapes with a starship, Kid Klown goes for the chase: "Attention Dirty Joe! release Honey now! Kidnapping a princess is a capital offense!" Joe said: "You again? Stop pestering me! Want to see my prized missile collection?" With these words, Joe shoots Kids starship down. But it is not enough for him: "Wait Kid, I think you'll enjoy my prized bomb collection, too!"

Kids Dangerous Life

Kid Klown sets off on his crazy adventure running from the upper half of the stage to the lower half. The action is set on a asymmetrical-scrolling screen. On the way he has to dodge all kind of dangers. Kid has to reach the goal before the flames of the burning fuse can reach the big bomb at the end of the stage. By jumping, Kid can overcome trip-wire, nails, puddles, and trenches. He has to dodge flying axes, rolling stones, wood blocks and snowballs, as well as Joe‘s Ice Cannon. And beware of the ghosts, fireballs and hydrants!

Kid Klown History

The first Kid Klown game was published in 1994 on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). In 1996 ("Kid Klown in Crazy Chase 2" for Japanese market only) and 1997 ("Bombing Islands"), two games followed for the PlayStation.
