Cheese Cat-Astrophe Starring Speedy Gonzales is a 2D single-player platform video game developed by Cryo Interactive and published by Sega[1][3] under license from Warner Bros..

Sylvester's alter-ego, the dastardly Dr. Cheesefinger, has "kitnapped" the cheese supply and Speedy Gonzales' girlfriend, Carmel. This "speedy mouse" must outwit the callous cat and rescue the village cheese supply.[4]

Reception[edit]

The four reviewers Electronic Gaming Monthly gave the Game Gear version a 5.5 out of 10, commenting that though the graphics and gameplay are both outstanding, the Game Gear hardware isn't powerful enough to handle them, and the resultant screen blurring whenever Speedy is in motion makes it virtually impossible to avoid taking hits.[5] GamePro made similar comments, but blamed the difficulty in avoiding hits on the fact that Speedy is always positioned at the center of the screen, even when running, thus cutting down the time the player has to react to hazards when they scroll onto the screen. They also gave Cheese Cat-Astrophe a more positive overall assessment, dubbing it "a fun little game."[6]
