The Ren & Stimpy Show Presents Stimpy's Invention is a 1993 game for the Sega Mega Drive by BlueSky Software and Sega based on the Ren & Stimpy cartoon. The game combines standard action platforming with a few gimmick stages such as a flying or riding a bike. Curiously, the game lacks a final boss. Instead, a weird machine built by character Stimpy must be disabled by pushing 4 switches .

Gameplay

The game can be played cooperatively or alone, similar to World of Illusion. A is for far jumps, running or digging, B is for attacks and C is for standard jumps. In single player mode, the active character can be swapped by pausing the game and pressing B. The inactive character is invincible and can be used as a shield. A bonus life is awarded for collecting 50000 points.
