Hunting High And Low - The Very First Tom and Jerry Game Ever!

Have you ever wandered what was the very first computer game about Tom and Jerry and how did it look like? The straight answer is "Hunting High And Low" by Magic Bytes released in 1989 for Amiga, Amstrad, Atari, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum. Do you even know what 'Commodore' is :)?

The idea about this text is to show you how (bad) these games looked like back in the day and how much we became spoiled and demanding when it comes to graphics features of today's games. On the other hand, it's always nice to go back in time and recall the good old days of arcade games.

Check out the long play by 'World of long plays' of this game in the video below:

Your only option to play this game today, unless you still own Commodore or Atari or Amiga in a functional state, is to download the ROM file of this game and run it on some emulator on PC.

The key featured of the game as you could see from the video are as follows:

  • - There's only an option to play as Jerry. It's simply a matter of gameplay, so you can't pick up Tom.
  • - Simple platformer premise: you run around the house, jumping on and off the furniture trying to get the cheese before Tom gets you. Very basic gameplay
  • - Besides running away you can slow Tom down a little bit by turning on the TV or dropping something on his head
  • - You can go from one room to another through the mouse holes - there are 5 rooms in the house
  • - Graphics and controls are probably among the worst you have ever seen but that's how it was at that time. Anyway, the game belongs to Tom and Jerry history as a first tom and jerry game so we must give it a credit for that.

Here's the game Download Link. Just unpack/unzip go into folder Tom & Jerry - Hunting High and Low, and click START THE GAME.bat file. That's it. Make sure first to read me file.
