Tom and Jerry: The Movie(トム&ジェリー ザ ムービー) is platform video game developed and published by Sega in 1992 for the Sega Master System. The next year the game was ported to the Game Gear with completely different level stages, but the same gameplay. Despite sharing the same name as the film, the game has no relevance to it.

Master System video game console

The Sega Master System (SMS) is a third-generation home video game console manufactured by Sega. It was originally a remodeled export version of the Sega Mark III, the third iteration of the SG-1000 series of consoles, which was released in Japan in 1985 and featured enhanced graphical capabilities over its predecessors. The Master System launched in North America in 1986, followed by Europe in 1987, and Brazil in 1989. A Japanese version of the Master System was also launched in 1987, which has additional features over the Mark III and other regional variants of the console, namely a built-in FM audio chip, a rapid-fire switch and a dedicated port for the 3D glasses. A cost-reduced model known as the Master System II was released in 1990 in North America and Europe.

Game Gear handheld game console

The Game Gear is an 8-bit fourth generation handheld game console released by Sega on October 6, 1990 in Japan, in April 1991 throughout North America and Europe, and during 1992 in Australia. The Game Gear primarily competed with Nintendo's Game Boy, the Atari Lynx, and NEC's TurboExpress. It shares much of its hardware with the Master System, and can play Master System games by the use of an adapter. Sega positioned the Game Gear, which had a full-color backlit screen with a landscape format, as a technologically superior handheld to the Game Boy.



In the Master System version, Tom has an adventurous big chase for Jerry inside the house, outside, through the country then back inside the house, ending with Tom finally catching Jerry momentarily. In the Game Gear version Tom chases Jerry on a quest to look for a hidden treasure taking them from the house all the way to an island where the treasure is buried.


The player controls Tom in the game. He chases Jerry through long level stages, Jerry hindering his progress by laying explosive traps and going under platforms. Tom can climb platforms, jump gaps and pounce. Ideally Jerry can be caught at the end of the level by solving a puzzle, but it is possible to catch Jerry earlier in the level with great difficulty. Once Jerry is caught the level ends and proceeds to the next one.
