The ACME Animation Factory is not your normal SNES game. This game was made for creative people. Painting, cutting films together and composing music is all the rage here.
ACME Animation Factory
The ACME Animation Factory includes Bugs Bunny, Piggy Dick, and Speedy Gonzales, and other Looney Tunes characters. It is divided into 4 sections. There are possibilities to work with the painting program, to compose your own songs, to use the animation workshop or to play mini-games. Background music can be turned off and the speed of the mouse pointer can be varied in 3 steps. It was created in such a way that it can be easily played with the SNES mouse. This means that it can be operated in a similar way to a PC. It can be played with the normal controller, but it is not necessarily recommended.
The painting program
The painting program gives you a blank sheet of paper that you can let off steam on. You have a choice of colors available, but you can also use new colors and shades. With 3 sliders you can set how high the proportion of red, blue and green tones should be. You can restore the original color at the touch of a button. Pens of various strengths and spray cans are used as painting tools. You can even determine the liquid content of your paints. If something goes wrong, you can undo the last steps with an icon. With the right mouse button you use an eraser or you have the option to clean the sheet completely. With the large brush you can completely fill in closed areas with color. Patterns can be integrated into the images and letters with different fonts can be used. Geometric figures such as circles and rectangles are also available. These can also be cut out with scissors so that they can be rotated, for example. Once a picture is ready, you have the option to decorate it with a decorative frame. It can then be saved. If you don't want to create your own pictures, you have the opportunity to become active in the coloring book.
The music area presents itself with several staves on which you can place different notes. For example, you can choose between three-quarter and four-quarter time. Each note color represents a different instrument played by a special drawing string. Taz Devil, for example, is active on the drum, while Daffy Duck fiddles virtuously on the violin. New Year's Eve trumpets according to your notes. There are also 8 melodies to choose from, ranging from happy to futuristic. You can change these melodies as needed. Here, too, you have the option of using a delete function to delete the entire work again or you can save the song and reload it later. You can use a program to play the melodies again later. You have the option of varying speeds or activating an endless loop. When a track is up, Bugs Bunny takes over as conductor. Here the variety of tones is limited to the normal instruments.
The third variant is the animation section in the game. 6 images are played back at different speeds to create an entertaining flip book. The different film sequences can be placed in front of different backgrounds. Different Looney Toons animations can be colored in or modified. For a change, there is a carrot-nibbling Bugs Bunny, a fluttering Tweety, Elmer Fudd, whose rifle explodes, or Duffy, who is practicing the art of fencing.
In the memory game you can put your memory skills to the test. You have 1 minute to find as many couples as possible and collect as many points as possible. The level of difficulty is increased somewhat by 3 empty boxes. Once you have clicked on this, the game is over. So luck also plays a small role in the game. The background music and the sound effects are a bit annoying.
The variant with the Looney Tunes is quite entertaining at the ACME Animation Factory. Unfortunately, it doesn't last very long. The look has been made very nicely, but then the music, for example, is more likely to be exhibited. The game is very interesting for children or for hardcore Looney Tunes fans. Everyone else should rather devote themselves to other games.
