Description of Cool World
Cool World is a lackluster platform game based on the equally lackluster follow-up movie to Who Framed Roger Rabbit?.
In this cartoon world, you are Frank Harris, a detective hired to stop busty cartoon diva Holli Would from entering the real world. The game consists of four worlds with four levels each. Each world features its own obstacles, cartoon enemies, and backgrounds. Along the way, you will shoot doodles (yes, doodles) and collect coins to bribe your way to the next level.
The doodles are quite fun to watch: they are moving objects from the real world into cool world, and the more doodles that make it through to the real world, the more objects they will be able to push back to cool world. The danger bar at the bottom of the screen shows the number of doodles in the real world. When the bar is full, the imbalance is far too great – and it’s game over. You destroy the doodles by shooting and sucking them up with your handy pen, return the objects to the real world—all under a pretty strict time limit.
Overall, funky cartoon graphics makes Cool World fun for a while, until the challenge becomes too repetitive and the doodles all too similar. I also found the game more difficult than average, so if your reflexes are not up to scratch or you hate time limits, stay away from this game.
When all is said and done, Silent Software/Disney’s game based on Who Framed Roger Rabbit is better and more varied than this rare underdog.

Is there a nude mod or one where she's a shemale? I vaguely remember this from Usenet in the 90s

Say what you will about the movie, but I loved Holli, she was damn fine. I actually liked her much more than Jessica Rabbit

The film I was never sure about, a decent cast, a bit novel in style, but one of those films you see once and think "meh" and don't watch it again. Now the game. This game had a decent rating in Commodore Format, and with Ocean, you know it will be a typical platformer. This isn't necessarily a bad thing as Ocean have given us Navy Seals, Batman, Robocop etc, but this by far wasn't going to tear up the ground. I managed to play this on abandonware about 15 years ago, I found it ok, but nothing brilliant, and I wouldn't say it's bad. If you like platformers especially licenced ones, this is worth 10 minutes for a quick play.
