Beavis and Butt-head is a video game for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Super NES, Sega Game Gear, and Game Boy. It is based on MTV's animated series of the same name, and follows the titular characters Beavis and Butt-head as they attempt to find their torn-up GWAR concert tickets. The Super NES version was developed by Realtime Associates, the Game Gear version by NuFX, and the Genesis/Mega Drive version by Radical Entertainment, all which were published by Viacom New Media and released in 1994. The Game Boy version was developed by Torus Games, published by GT Interactive, and released in 1998.

Reception[edit]

Reviewing the Genesis version, GamePro commented that "Beavis and Butt-Head is for gamers who possess both thumb speed and the patience to undertake a lengthy junk hunt to crack obscure puzzles." They criticized the extensive trial-and-error involved in obtaining items, but praised the controls and the visual style's coherence with the look of the TV show.[1]
