Adventures of Yogi Bear is a multi-platform game released by Cybersoft on October 1, 1994 in North America and later in Japan and Europe. The game is called Yogi Bear in Japan, Yogi Bear's Cartoon Caper for the European Super NES version, and Yogi Bear: Cartoon Capers for the European Sega Mega Drive version.

Gameplay[edit]

This is the result of being "killed" by weasels in this game.

It is a platform game in which the player controls Yogi Bear and must progress through five levels representing Yogi's home, Jellystone Park. Jellystone Park must not be turned into a chemical dumping zone; only Yogi can prevent that from happening.

Each map screen uses bright colors to create a realistic "park" feeling to the game. The player must navigate through various climate zones (including tundra, swamps, and grasslands) in order to retrieve the picnic baskets. Collecting 100 time clocks allow players to receive an additional life. Enemies in the game include bats, skunks, weasels, ghosts, and other assorted baddies. If a player "kills" Yogi in the game, he simply goes into a mournful expression and drops off the screen like an item.

Players can also ride on mine carts and participate in surfing while using a beaver for a makeshift surfboard.

Reception[edit]

This game received mixed reviews from the reviewers; ranging from a 7.8 out of 10 rating from Electronic Gaming Monthly to a 35% overall rating by GamePro. Only the Super NES version of the game was reviewed; it was generally reviewed between September 1994 and January 1995 (for the then-upcoming Christmas shopping season). Various reviewers from Germany and Sweden reviewed this game in order to increase its profile in European markets.
