    Bucky O'Hare © 1992 Konami Company, Limited.

    Bucky O'Hare is a scrolling shoot-em-up for up to four players based on the TV cartoon series Bucky O'Hare and the Toad Wars. Players must stop the Toad Empire from invading their home planets in the 'Aniverse' and enslaving their people. To achieve their goal they must shoot their way through an army of brainwashed toads to destroy their evil leader, a computer program known as 'KOMPLEX' and release the 'Interplanetary Life Force.'

    Players choose to play as either Blinky (a one-eyed android), Bucky (the heroic rabbit captain), Dead-Eye Duck (a four-armed mallard) or Jenny (an 'Aldebaran cat' and telepath). Differences between the characters are purely visual as each plays the same.

    In addition to their gun, each character carries a small number of smart bombs that can kill multiple enemies. Weapon and health power-ups appear at certain points in a stage, appearing through a glowing 'door' outline, that opens and throws the power-up into the stage.

    Some stages feature locked cells in which Bucky's people are imprisoned. These can be shot open to release the prisoners. The game is mainly viewed from a side-scrolling perspective but will sometimes switch the viewpoint from stage-to-stage, with some stages using a forced isometric perspective or a vertically-scrolling viewpoint.

    A large boss character awaits players at the end of each stage. "Bucky O'Hare" features eight stages of play:
    Stage 1: Planet Warren
    Stage 2: Planet Punk
    Stage 3: Climate Converter
    Stage 4: Asteroidbelt
    Stage 5: Planet Rat
    Stage 6: Mother Ship
    Stage 7: Toad Star
    Stage 8: Planet Life Force

    TRIVIA
    Bucky O'Hare was released in September 1992, it is based on the short-lived cartoon aired in 1991. Originally based upon the comic book created by Larry Hama in 1978, this was the first serious competitor to the TMNT because it wasn't completely children-oriented and the comic book wasn't a TMNT wannabe. However, due to poor distribution of the TV show and financial problems with the producers the show couldn't see a second season.

    Several of the staff members went on to form the developer Treasure the following year. 'Escape Iuchi5' is Hiroshi Iuchi, the director of "Ikaruga" and "Radiant Silvergun". 'Gammer Kikuchi' is Tetsuhiko Kikuchi, the character director of "Guardian Heroes", and 'Star Hanzawa' is Norio Hanzawa, the composer for most of Treasure's games.
