Looney Tunes: Cartoon Conductor (known as Looney Tunes: Cartoon Concerto in Europe) is a Nintendo DS game published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by Eidos Interactive.

Plot[edit]

The game starts with Bugs Bunny standing in front of a stage. Bugs explains that the Tasmanian Devil destroyed the classical music in some old Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons, so it's up to the player to conduct a new orchestra to refill the Looney Tunes cartoon background music. Bugs then will teach the player about how to conduct the orchestra.

Gameplay[edit]

This game is similar to elite beat agents Player must conduct an orchestra to perform at a classic Looney Tunes cartoon. To start the orchestra, player must tap three times on the touch screen, like a real conductor. To make the orchestra perform perfectly, player must tap or drag the notes at the right times; if not the performance meter will go down. If the performance meter depletes completely, the orchestra will be canceled and the game will end. There are four difficulties: Apprentice (easy), Conductor (normal), Maestro (hard), and a fourth, unlockable mode and the hardest one: Looney. This mode is about as hard as Maestro mode, but unlike the other difficulties, the player must play through the intervals instead of just watching them.

Scoring[edit]

Each time the player taps or drags a note, the player will gain a varying amount of points. The amount of points depends on the player's accuracy. There are four accuracy levels in the game: Gold, Silver, Normal, and Miss. The score level, scores, and combos also affects the performance meter, the audience, the cartoon, and the musical grade. There are five musical grades: S+, S, A, B and C. The musical grade can be guessed by the amount of applause when the cartoon ends.
