Seven minutes of mediocrity.
When most people think of Chuck E. Cheese, they think pizza, arcade games, and a large, scary mouse. This incredibly short title spins those concepts into a game revolving around Chuck E. Cheese and his large purple friend trying to save Earth from pizza-loving monsters from outer space. The two heroes go through levels, defeating these aliens in a carnival-style game where players must hit a certain number of each alien pop-up as they crawl across the screen.
To hit the aforementioned targets, players must touch the area where they want their character to fire. This doesn’t always mean the ammo hits its target. Other targets can get in the way, and if you aim a little high or a little low, it won’t hit the target at all. You can also hit other panels to earn bonus points, bonus time, and power-ups. The power-ups let Chuck’s blaster fire more than its usual five rounds at a time, and allow his scary purple friend to throw more than two balloons before reloading.
The game doesn’t last long, with only a handful of levels that take a few minutes to beat. It also includes some challenges, the completion of which earns you a trophy, but the game refuses to explain what they are.
This game may satisfy younger kids who still visit or get excited about Chuck E. Cheese, but even without a tutorial level or any instructions, almost any child could blow through it on any difficulty with little to show.
