New Looney Tunes game involves actual tunes


The latest Looney Tunes game looks not only into the Warner Bros. back catalogue for inspiration, but also to the DS's. Looney Tunes: Cartoon Concerto is basically Ouendan/Elite Beat Agents with Looney Tunes characters and inscrutable golden carrots. Players will "conduct" the music, tapping along in order to direct recreations of classic Looney Tunes scenes from shorts like "What's Opera, Doc?"*

The bizarre thing is that, much like we had to deal with the confusing thought that a Looney Tunes minigame collection could have value, the Amaze Entertainment-developed Cartoon Concerto could also be interesting. Although the one piece of music named on screen is Beethoven's 5th Symphony, it's possible that in some cases we could be directing those orchestral cues that go along with the cartoons. The music in Looney Tunes doesn't get enough attention, and maybe by playing it we can gain a better feel for how certain sounds were matched to certain motions. Not that we have a problem with classical music.

*Did you ever find Bugs Bunny attractive when he put on a dress and played a girl bunny?
