Wayne’s World is a platformer video game for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive console, released in 1993 and based on the popular Saturday Night Live sketch starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey. The player takes control of Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar as they navigate their way through a variety of levels set in familiar locations from the sketch such as Wayne’s basement, a mall food court, and a local park. Along the way they must battle enemies with their signature air-guitars while collecting items to help them progress further into the game.

The game follows Wayne and Garth as they attempt to save Cassandra (played by Tia Carrere in the film) from an evil music producer named Mr. Big who has kidnapped her and taken her to his sinister tower. To reach Cassandra, Wayne and Garth must travel through six different stages, each filled with enemies ranging from flying robots to giant snakes that can be defeated with Wayne’s trusty guitar or Garth’s drumsticks. The duo also have access to various power-ups such as extra lives or invincibility that can be collected throughout each stage.

The two protagonists also have access to special moves which can be used against enemies or obstacles blocking their progress. These include Wayne’s “Rock Out” move which causes all nearby enemies to dance uncontrollably (allowing him time to pass by unscathed) and Garth’s “Air Guitar Solo” move which temporarily stuns any foes caught within its range.

At certain points throughout the game, players are given the opportunity to play mini-games for bonus points or items; these mini-games involve activities such as skiing down a mountain slope, playing pinball with a giant bowling ball, or participating in an arm wrestling match against an alien creature. In addition, there are also hidden bonuses scattered throughout each stage which reward players with extra lives if found.

Overall, Wayne’s World is an enjoyable platformer for fans of both Mike Myers' iconic character and classic 16-bit gaming alike; its colourful graphics, catchy soundtrack and fun gameplay create an experience that is sure to bring back fond memories of watching Saturday Night Live in the early 90's - not just for fans of Mike Myers but also those who simply enjoy a good old fashioned platformer!
