Released in the still mostly 2D 1995, Bug! was one of the earliest 3D platform games
in the business. (A bugs life
) It's a 3D rendered platform/adventure
game developed by Realtime Assiciates for the Sega Saturn and later for Microsoft Windows 3x and 95. In the game, you are, as the game suggests, a bug. And you want to make it big in Hollywood. And you made it! Bug has finally signed up for an action film in which his girlfriend Queen Cadavra
kidnapped and you have to rescue her. You control him as he goes around the "set", collects coins and jumps on the heads of his enemies to defeat them to make his way to the end of the level or, in other words, to get to the other "set" of the movie. What differs this game from Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog and a lot of other platform games that were so popular in the 90's is the 3D view, which takes the side view and tweaks it. Bug can walk sideways, on vertical objects, and even turned down. The game is visually really advanced for its time and is really the jewel of the game. Although a typical platform game, it's cool to look at bug crushing other bugs
and going around in 3D. The gameplay is also very fun and although typical, the 3D rendering make it seem as something new. And the sounds are very interesting too. I really suggest that you should go and get it, and even try out the sequel of this original game.
