This game is terrific, and all my friends agree. And just in time for the holidays!

Thoughts?

I've loved this one for a long time. It's lot better than the console game!

An A- for a licensed Dr. Suess game on the GBC?

I've never heard of this before and it sounds great. I love how some of the best games are really simple in concept yet so very fun to play.

This has got to be my all-time favorite post of yours. Well done, sir :lol:

My wife and I use that running joke often. My neighbors decided not to have a domestic dispute last night? The cat used the litter box, instead of doing its business on the rug like it usually does? It's a Christmas Miracle!!

Heh. Never gets old.

As far as the game, turning The Grinch into a Pac-Man clone seems like something straight out of the Atari 2600 playbook. Given the era, I would have expected the game to be a generic hop-and-bop platformer, instead. Kudos to Konami for deciding on the former. Seems like a great match, and a wise decision.

Proof that sometimes the simplest ideas are best. I might have to track this one down...

I didn't even know this game existed! Will have to "give it a whirl" this holiday season. Nice review.

I remember kind of liking that Grinch game on PS1 back in the day. Wonder how well it's aged.
