Yogi's back and he's brought a few friends along with him this time. They've all received a call from Top Cat about how the toys of the world have been stolen and set out to find them. Unfortunately, being dim cartoon characters, they've gone and got captured by the evil Greed Monster! You, as the boisterous bear, now have to find all the toys and rescue your pals from a late worse than death - the eraser! Oh not! Not the dreaded... (Shut up! -Ed).

The first thing you think when playing this is... Top Cat! The game is basically exactly the same as TC with more of the well drawn and coloured graphics and a variety of nastiness to be avoided. Instead of collecting milk to restore your energy you now munch picnic baskets, and items like keys, sweet jars, honey and cans of pop can all be used to your advantage.

YBAFITGM (for short!) is instantly appealling to the younger gamesplayer. The cartoon characters are all recognisable and the simple gameplay is not difficult to master. If you find getting around the aliens in the semi-3D environment a bit hard then fret not! Yogi has been armed with sweets. Firing one at a nasty will soon solve your problem.

Yogi's latest adventure may not be anything new but I found it great fun to play and quite addictive. I recommend it to all our younger readers: the game gets a little repetitive after a while but you'll still have some good fun.
