Sylvester and Tweety in Cagey Capers is a side-scrolling action game for the Sega Mega Drive. The game stars the Looney Tunes cartoon characters Sylvester the Cat and Tweety Bird in levels based on the cartoons that feature the characters.
The game is a platformer where the player controls Sylvester the Cat. The objective is to chase Tweety Bird around the levels while solving puzzles and avoiding enemies. Sylvester walks with or and runs with or . He jumps with and jumps down from platforms with +. To track down Tweety, the player can use the Tweety Scope (assigned to by default), which pans the view over to Tweety, or get Sylvester Jr.'s help to search for Tweety's whereabouts in the level. Sylvester can then give chase when possible, using the button to scratch Tweety for bonus points. Arrows will appear around Tweety when he has finally been cornered at the end of a level, allowing Sylvester to catch him and move on to the next level, with bonus points awarded if the player catches Tweety in as little time as possible.
To get to Tweety, Sylvester may have to interact with various objects to solve puzzles or to defeat, subdue or hide from enemies. The Action button (assigned to by default) allows Sylvester to pick up, use, push or carry various objects as well as Stage Props for various purposes. Sylvester can select a Stage Prop to use by pausing the game with START and moving it to him with or . Props can be dropped by pressing START again. Some objects, such as a cat bed, lamp or trash can, can also be used as hiding places from certain enemies by pressing to hide inside them until the enemy leaves the area, though Sylvester will be automatically kicked out after a few moments. Some other objects can be stacked on top of one another (by moving them into each other) to reach Tweety or other items.
Sylvester's health is measured by the life icon in the bottom-left corner of the screen. As he takes damage, he gets dizzier and his head grows more lumps, with the icon's background turning red when he is down to his last hit point. One more hit, and Sylvester loses a life, indicated by one of his lives flying away. Extra lives are earned every 100,000 points.
The game uses an adjustable difficulty level that can be set anywhere between 1% and 100% to make the game easier or harder. However, lower percentages will prevent the player from playing all the levels. If the difficulty setting is lower than a level's difficulty threshold, the game shows a preview of the next level and then ends.
