Gameplay

Buster Bunny's mission in this game is to trace down and defeat Montana Max, who has stolen and hidden some treasure and rescue Babs Bunny. Many foes are in the way, including Roderick Rat and Gene Splicer, who has brainwashed several of Buster's friends, including Plucky Duck, Hamton J. Pig, Dizzy Devil and Calamity Coyote. Upon defeating Gene, the helmet controlling Buster's friends will fall off and explode, leaving them dazed or to fall down in a comical fashion (in the case of Calamity Coyote).

To complete each level, Buster must find Gogo Dodo, who will allow him to enter a portal. Additionally, Buster can find portals reminiscent of the show's rainbow-coloured logo, that will take Buster into Wackyland in the form of a bonus level. Here, Buster must attempt to collect as many items as he can before touching one of the numerous Dodos that populate the level. [3]

Reception

MegaTech magazine praised the graphics and sound, and many levels to explore in different landscapes such as woods and snow. [6] Power Unlimited gave a review score of 90% writing: "Buster's Hidden Treasure is a lot of fun to play and good looking. The game is big and varied. Unfortunately, the sound isn't that great, and you can only play as Buster Bunny." [10]
