4.0 out of 5 stars Fun. Different. October 23, 2001
It's fun and easy to get started with, even though it's unlike other games.
You have to start with the EXT levels to get points for the real battles. These levels are good for getting acquainted with the controls without any pressure. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes to get the hang of moving, stretching, and locking. You also accumulate points by attacking the bonita zakos (the huge breasted ones). After the first few times, though, these levels become tedious tasks of getting points, so it's probably just as well that the game is pretty much just the 12 boss battles.
The main part of the game is the 12 boss battles. Each one has a unique scenario, and supposedly requires a different strategy. However, I beat half of them on the first try by simply running around attacking and dodging attacking without any clear strategy. I enjoyed the different scenarios, particularly Anne Droid V2.1 (shades of Le Petit Prince) though that one didn't require any strategy, and Cyan, which did require a little strategy.
There is some mild slowdown when the screen gets busy in the EXT levels and in the final battle with Spirit. It's slightly distracting, but not enough to detract from the game.
I really liked the sound. The voices and the music fit and enhance the game's atmosphere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best boss-battles ever, but that's it! September 8, 2001
Games made by Treasure have always been known for wild and crazy boss-battles. In a way, "Stretch Panic" is the "purest" Treasure game. The bulk of the game is really *just* boss-battles. Before you give up on it though, let me say this. I've been playing video games since Atari 2600. I've played thousands of games and probably fought tens of thousands of bosses and the boss battles in "Stetch Panic" are the most insane and wildly original ever put in a game. The only thing that keeps it from being a perfect game is the fact that bosses are all there really is. Sure, there are some "in between" levels where you beat the heck out of cartoon girls with huge breasts (I'm not kidding), but the only goal is to get enough "points" to fight another boss. No exploration, no collecting, no cast of zany characters.
As long as you know what you are getting into, this game is easy to recomend, but think of it more as an "arena battle" type game than a platformer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but Short September 3, 2001
By Travis
I purchased this game today, expecting, well, a game. I was hoping for a mario or sonic type adventure where you go through levels, defeat bosses, find secrets, etc. Instead of all that, you get just the bosses. No levels, no secrets, no collecting, just dorrs to each one of the bosses. Now this isnt necessarily a bad thing, its a very fun game. The bosses are all extremly entertaining to fight, but all and all its more of a boss royale than a game. It is good though, so it really depends on what your looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Gaming Etude July 13, 2004
For those of you not familiar with the word etude, it is a French word which, in America, usually refers to a musical study, or a piece built around a single theme or pattern. I have played two other games by Treasure: Mischief Makers (which was made with the assistance of Enix) and Gunstar Heroes. Gunstar heroes (for the Sega Genisis) and Stretch Panic are both video game etudes: studies into a theme, but nothing more.
Gunstar Heroes, for those of you unfamiliar with the title, took perhaps two hours or less to COMPLETE. That isn't just rush through without getting everything, after two hours, there isn't much left to do. Stretch Panic is simalar, except slightly longer. In Stretch Panic, you are given a small story line about a girl and her three vain sisters. Then you are given a possessed scarf and placed in the Museum of Agony, a small area from which you go to the game's 16 areas. Four of these areas are known as Ex levels, and in those levels you aquire points which you use to open doors and launch your one special attack.
There is only one unique enemy in this game, and she is probably the reason the game is teen rated. The enemy is a woman who wished to have a bigger chest area, and from that wish, she grew breasts which are probably twice as large as the lady possessing them.
The main parts of this game are the boss battles, of which there are twelve. Each battle is fun and unique, yet usually fairly easy once you figure out how to go about fighting it.
While the battles are fun, and the action great, by the end of the game, you'll be hungry for more. After defeating and freeing the last sister, you'll get a lowsy ending which only increases any irritation toward the game's length.
