Home Improvement: Power Tool Pursuit! is an action/platforming video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System very loosely based on the hit sitcom Home Improvement. A version for the Sega Genesis was made but was never released. Sega rejected the game, as it would be the same as the SNES version.
On a special broadcast of the show Tool Time, Tim prepares to unveil the new Binford ultra power tool line name after him, the Binford-Taylor Turbo Power Tool Line. He goes to retrieve them, only to discover that they are missing and a note left in their place demanding Tim to come and get them.
The player's weapons include modified tools such as a nail gun, a blowtorch (used as a flamethrower), and a chainsaw which inexplicably hurls energy waves. These weapons are used to fight dinosaurs, acid-spewing mummies, robot sentries, and other enemies.
The game is broken down into four worlds of four levels, each world containing a boss level.
Ultimately, the game has received very negative reviews despite the show's popularity. The game failed to sell in large numbers and it is hard to find today. Nintendo Power pointed out in a 1995 issueTemplate:Specify that the game lacks the humor that makes the TV show so great.
