In this great platform game that was more successful on the Amiga, you're cast in the role of Oscar, a cutesy chipmunk whose task is to find little clones of himself in a bunch of movie backdrops. Gameplay is conventional platform fare but is executed in a very polished manner typical of a Flair release. The game's highlights are the well-designed and diverse levels, each with its own theme, power-ups, hidden surprises, and enemies.

Thanks to Oscar's all-encompassing premise of being set in movieland, the designers let their imagination run wild in designing levels, which range from sci-fi, to Castlevania-style creepy cemeteries, to Western saloons and beyond. Oscar wears appropriate clothes in each scene, and even doodles when idling in ways appropriate to that scene. With attractive graphics, a great soundtrack, fluid controls, diverse levels, and a difficulty level that is just right, Oscar is a great platform game that deserves a second chance. Two thumbs up!
