Ah Cool World.
My childhood wouldn’t have been complete without the nightmares and headaches caused by this bizarre little partly-animated flick. A big fan of Who Framed Roger Rabbit? at the time, despite how terrifying Christopher Lloyd’s Judge Doom truly was, I expected the Brad Pitt-starring cartoon film noir to really be the next best thing but it just freaked me out.
Something tells me I might enjoy it more re-watching it today though, we’ll see.
I never played any Cool World game back in the day because, as far as I was concerned, Cool World was evil and needed to die. But, after having tracked down a copy of the Game Boy game since and giving it a go, I can finally confirm that…
Cool World is evil and needs to die.
Or that one game, at least.
Now I’ll give it that: it probably has the best Game Boy opening ever.
