Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Home Alone series (2 titles)
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Imagineering/THQ
RELEASED:         various
TYPE:             Action
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          A series of games based on the first two hit feature
                  films of the same names starring the young McCauley
                  Caulkin as a mischevious and ingenious young boy who has
                  to take care of himself when he is accidentally abandoned
                  by his parents.

IMPRESSIONS:      Yet another round of stupid arcade conversions of popular
                  Hollywood movies.  Both have too many cheap shots for my
                  tastes, and I think they should be left at home - alone!

VARIATIONS:       Home Alone (1992, save the neighborhood from a pair of
                    incompetent thieves - decent enough except for the
                    "water bandit" crap and the many, many cheap shots)
                  Home Alone 2 - Lost in New York (1993, same idea, but
                    different location - is somewhat more bearable, but
                    just barely so)

Dire, evil game based on a dire, evil film. But no-one bought it! Ha ha!

Home Alone 2 was just plain awful but I have to admit I quite enjoyed the first.

I enjoyed looking for things to turn into weapons and laying traps. I liked it anyway.

The sound on the first one was like an un-tuned radio. The game however just couldn't hold my interest and I don't know what I should be doing, yet I'll beat this one and then comment on its merits.
