Looking for some fun in the sun? Hit the desert highway with the Road Runner and his nutty nemesis, Wile E. Coyote. Clever animations and dual-sided gameplay make Desert Demolition a lightweight frolic.

Double Your Fun

Desert Demolition is really two games in one. You play through the six levels as either the dinner (Road Runner) or the diner (Wile E.), with the gameplay changing depending on which character you control.

Naturally, Road Runner is pure speed and can dodge, bounce, and sprint past the coyote's traps. Conversely, as the slower Wile E., you command an array of wacky Acme gadgets, including rockets, spring shoes, and wings.

Desert Duo

Although there's double the gameplay, there's not exactly double the fun. As in the cartoons, Road Runner is pretty one dimensional -- the coyote's the comedy star. Road Runner's basic running and jumping gets pretty routine, and he can usually race right out of danger to the exits. The real fun comes when Wile E. uncovers his latest goofy gadget and uses it to catch his prey.

The controls are easy, especially for the simple Road Runner. He charges along, stops quickly, and bounces accurately.

Once you know what each new Acme gadget can do, Coyote is pretty easy, too. Al though his spring shoes are awkward, flying with the wings and racing with the skates offer fast fun.

Acme Animation

The graphics and sounds are true to the classic cartoons. The backgrounds are flat and colorful, and the two protagonists are large, fluid sprites. Best of all are the humorous animations when the frantic Wile E. flounders with his springs or skates. The sounds are cartoon quality, punctuating the action with lots of boings, bams and beep-beeps.

Fans of the cartoons will welcome these crazy critters into their homes like family. Serious gamers hoping for a challenge won't find it here, however. With only one simple boss to beat at the end, Desert Demolition is easy fun that's entertaining one afternoon but forgotten the next.

ProTips:

  • These cannons look like they hurt you, but they actually help you reach elevated areas.
  • To exit Choo Choo Terrain, throw this switch before you reach the smokestack.
  • Beat the Acme truck in the Grand Finale by dodging its bombs and pulling the switches to drop explosives onto it.
  • Before you slide down this first rope, grab the extra coyote life off-screen to the upper left.

In Desert Demolition your goal: run through six different desert environments before time expires, collecting ACME stamps.

As the Road Runner, speed is your ally as you do incredible jumps, burn though loop-de-loops, and avoid all of the Coyote's contraptions and ambushes. The Road Runner can also scare an unsuspecting Coyote with his Beep-Beep attack.

As the Coyote, you use Acme's crazy gadgets to catch the Road Runner, constantly attempting to master their power without getting yourself flattened. The Coyote has a special leap attack which allows him to make a last ditch attempt to grab the bird!
