A very playable and entertaining "sequel" to Beauty & the Beast.

Screen Shots

As far as sequels go, Tropical Trouble seems a natural sequel to Beauty & The Beast. Fun game, fun sound effects. I played the crap out of that game back when I got it. It's got nice variety for backgrounds (although the objective is always the same), excellent graphics and pretty good sound. It's kind of like Beauty & the Beast turned on its side.
