One of 7th Level’s most obscure releases before fading into obscurity, Ace Ventura is a decent cartoon adventure starring the wacky cartoon series of the same name which was popularized by a Jim Carrey movie.
Despite featuring some hilarious voice acting and excellent animation, Ace Ventura is ultimately little more than an average adventure game that’s disappointingly short and easy. GameSpot has the lowdown on this one:
“Dude, pull my finger. Did that make you laugh? Then you’re probably going to like Ace Ventura.
Borrowing from the Ace Ventura cartoon series, the game features all the same gags, mannerisms, and obnoxiousness from the world’s famous pet detective – the kind of stuff that’s so stupid, you have no choice but to laugh. And it’s the humor that keeps the game afloat. The gameplay you’ve seen a dozen times before. Once again, Ace is on the case, this time traveling the earth looking for a lost creature. Masters of click-and-solve games will be able to finish the entire game in no time flat. In fact, a lot of it is so simple, you’ll figure out that the game is partly designed for young children.
