What did megacorporations in the early nineties? Same as always, trying to take over the world. The sticky tentacles of tightly entangled media space. Do not stay aside and our favorite video games.
It just so happened that the vast majority of games made under license and the means of the manufacturers of burgers, soda and chips were, to put it mildly, disposable and forgotten playing brethren faster than it was time to go. The more interesting it looks like our patient is the most striking exception to this sad rule.
Character Cool Spot was a symbol of pop "7 Up" in the early nineties: a red tablet with the arms and legs of Mickey mouse and grace MC hammer is the will of the designers came from the logo of the drink and went on a journey through the world of video games. Before us is the second most successful part of his adventure.

Collect the red pill, jump on the Islands, shoot the enemies with bubbles of soda; typing the required number of tablets, release his brother-twin, languishing in a cage, gaining slightly more than the minimum required, are sent off to the bonus level. In fact, everything. Rather, everything about the gameplay. And then the fun begins.
