Get Toobin' with the Tube Dudes. Ride the rapids and check out the white
water challenges for an action packed fun day out toobin'.
It's rad! It's bad! TOOBIN' is so awesome, dude! Have a totally toobular
time Toobin' on dozens of rivers. You can even cruise down Martian canals and
prehistoric swamps. Go through gates, grab treasures and weapons, steer clear
of obstacles and fight enemy dudes before they damage your toob. At the end
of each river is a whirlpool that'll take you to another wet and wild ride!
Keep your head above water and you'll have an excellent rippin' and ragin'
Toobin' - The first game of its kind. Join Biff and Jet, the tube-dudes, as
they cruise the baddest rivers in and out of this world!
A game for one or two, play either Bill or Jet in search of the most
outrageous party they can find. Guide the tube-dudes to places even your
travel agent doesn't know about!
Each river contains new and exciting backdrops to the varied obstacles that
you must negotiate. Pick up tin cans that you'll find in the rivers to
defend yourself against the shoreside creeps like punks, fly fishermen,
swamp monsters and even kamikaze penguins. Watch out for sticks, branches
and spiked logs that can easily burst your tube.
Paddle through the gates for mega-bonuses, but don't bump the poles or
you'll halve your score. Hot toobers can rack up the points this way. Don't
lag behind 'cos the big 'gator is just waiting to catch those slow toobers at
the back. Hold tight as you challenge the white water rapids.
Toobin's got lots of special features like simultaneous two player action for
double the fun, and higher levels with wild and varied rivers from the
Amazon to Mars!, taking in the Nile and the Colorado along the way. Complete
the rivers and you can join in the playing!

Special Items to Pick Up:
Treasure chest: 200, 500 or 1000 points, dude.
Floating can: pick it up to add to your stash (9's the max you can have).
Sixpacks: looks like six cans, but you actually get more. You lose your
sixpack when you sink or when you hit a whirlpool.
Gates: go through them to increase the score multiplier. Miss one, and your
score multiplier gets, like, totally wiped out.
Beach Ball: pumps you up.
Patch: you need these to repait your toob.
Letters: totally toobular things to have. You can get a new toob and 3 extra
patches for three letters, and you can get a big bonus for all seven letters.
Make full use of the two player option if you want to be king of the river!
With a friend to help you the game becomes not only a competition to get to
the and but also to see who makes the highest score.
Try to hit the shoreside obstructions as soon as possible. By stunning them
with your cola cans your passage down the river will be that little bit
Picking up a Beach Ball gives you extra speed enabling you to whizz around
at high speed for a short while. Keep up your speed and gain extra points
by steering through gates without hitting the sides. Be careful not to
dawdle for too long, however, as a giant alligator will start chasing you!
The only way to get him off your tail is to paddle through the gate.
It's very important to shoot everything when you first start playing the
game. The letters T, O, O, B, I and N will be released as you hit each object
earning you massive points when the game is over. Try shooting innocent
looking objects, such as bushes, as these often cover the bonus letters.
