Bubsy the speedy and the acrobat!
Super Bubsy is a platformer game, rather in the vein of Sonic, speedy enough, but generally a little tamer than the caffeinated hedgehog. But, even so, it's a game that shares many of the elements with that SEGA classic; it's got a similar color palette as well as a similar build in terms of the level design, it's got a sweet well produced set of levels and, more than anything, it's got a proper, well built set of puzzles, even if the majority of time you'll want to speed through the level collecting as many of the coins, and getting as many of the points, by finishing the level fast. The levels are generally built around a central theme; spring, summer, water worlds, etc, and so, from level to level you get a consistently different array of backgrounds and foregrounds, which make the game feel distinct and unique in many ways. So, overall, Super Bubsy is a great platformer game, much aided by the great controls as well, which make it so much fun to plow through the levels, sometimes the ones that you've just completed in order to see if you can get a better score or a faster time. It's at times even better constructed than Sonic, which is definitely something that will please you, when you want something that feels like a Sega arcade/console game, but for the DOS/Windows environment.
