Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue ROM is a platformer video game published by Activision and developed by Traveller’s Tales, based on Disney/Pixar’s 1999 film Toy Story 2. The game was released for Game Boy, Microsoft Windows, and PlayStation consoles.
The game follows the events of the film, as Woody is kidnapped by Al McWhiggin (the owner of a toy store called “Al’s Toy Barn”), and Buzz Lightyear and the other toys from Andy’s room set out to rescue him. The player controls Buzz Lightyear as he makes his way through various levels inspired by locations in the film; each level features different challenges, such as defeating enemies or rescuing other toys. The game also features levels in which the player controls Woody, who must herd cattle through Roundup Gang territory.
The Nintendo 64 and PlayStation versions of the game feature cooperative multiplayer gameplay, allowing two players to control Buzz Lightyear and Woody simultaneously. The Game Boy Color version of the game is a side-scrolling platformer and features different levels and gameplay mechanics from the other versions.
Toy Story 2 – Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue! was generally well-received by critics; reviewers praised the graphics and level design while criticizing the camera system and controls. The game was a commercial success, selling over five million copies worldwide.
