Animated Blood, Cartoon Violence, Crude Humor, Tobacco Reference
This is a fighting game in which players engage in brawls with characters from Cartoon Network TV shows. Players control stubby characters that punch, kick, and smack each other until opponents' energy levels are depleted; the "cartoony" matches are highlighted by comical grunts and battle cries, and colorful impact effects. Each character can also use special attacks (e.g., laser blasters, fireballs, electrified guitar solos) against adversaries. Some attacks include belching or flatulence sound effects, which are accompanied by green gas clouds; in one pirate ship level, diving seagulls release bird droppings on characters. The game also includes unlockable videos: in one animated clip, splashes of colored liquid appear as a character punches, kicks, and defeats various monsters; in another, a character is depicted with a broken cigar in his mouth.
