Tom and Jerry: The Movie (Sega Master System, Game Gear)

‘Tom & Jerry: The Movie’ for the Sega Master System and Game Gear features Sonic posters in the background of the City level – though each version is slightly different.

The video game, Tom and Jerry: The Movie was a tie-in to the movie of the same name in 1992. Yes, for those that missed it, there was a Tom and Jerry movie in 1992. The game was released for the Sega Master System and Game Gear and appears to have no real relation to the movie other than the name and starring characters.

Like most licensed games, it is really mediocre at best. Not a horrible game but there are far better platformers out there. You get to play the role of Tom as he chases Jerry down in a series of levels. If you are particularly good, you can catch Jerry and end the level early. Otherwise, you have a puzzle to solve at the end of each level which determines whether you catch him or not. There are a variety of environmental obstacles to avoid or overcome and Jerry will of course make your job harder. In addition to running through dangerous areas, he drops mines and bombs in an attempt to stop you. If Jerry gets out of sight then you lose.
