CNET Editors' reviewThis humorous game places the safety of a wacky crew of raccoons in your hands. In Varmintz Deluxe, you guide five furry creatures through an obstacle-packed maze while collecting as many golden eggs as possible. Along the way, you must dodge enemies such as evil birds, rabid dogs, cowboys, and joggers, a task that requires your undivided attention. However, we were surprised to find we had no weapon to fight off foes, although you can drink a magic potion that makes you immune from attacks. The graphics, music, and sound effects perfectly reflect the game's lighthearted tone, but the characters appear to move in a fashion we find rather primitive. It's also tough to see your raccoon at times, especially when it's motionless. You can deactivate the sound and music and choose the screen size, but other than that, the feature set is slim. All told, we think Varmintz Deluxe will please younger gamers but probably won't satisfy the more experienced crowd.
From Skunk Studios:
Varmintz Deluxe brings back classic hop-and-dodge style gameplay in a fast-paced, character-rich environment. The game includes a range of characters and stars. Varmintz is a scrappy raccoon posse in search of golden eggs. Each of the more than 50 levels contains a variety of challenging obstacles and in-game enemies, including rabid dogs, lumberjacks, cowboys, joggers, and skateboarders.
