Super Bubsy is a 1995 PC remake
of a game that is actually called Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind
, or just Bubsy and is the first in the Bubsy game series. The allusion to the famous movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" is not accidental and in the game you have to defend the planet's supply of yarn balls from alien invaders. This, graphics is an improved version of the game and it is identical to its original in its gameplay. You go around, collect coins
and stomp on enemies to defeat them. Now, how is this game any different than all other popular platform games
? It really isn't. Before the original came out, the whole community was hyped about this game, hoping it to be the next Sonic or Super Mario. But once out and played, it became evident that this game is a mediocre copy of the two aforementioned legends. That leaves us puzzled about why the developers would think this game would become any better in enhanced graphics. Sure, it's better to look at, but not better to play it. It's not bad; it's just that it's not that good. If you want yourself a good platform game, go play Super Mario
. If you're tired of Super Mario, try Sonic. If you're done with that one too, then you can try this one out.
