If any video game character has the right to be angry, it’s oft-maligned platformer hero Bubsy. Thanks to the power of ROM hacking, the bobcat mascot finally has an appropriate outlet for his righteous rage.
Retro game publisher Retroism recently dug up an unfortunate remnant from the 90s mascot craze and dropped two of his games on Steam in an attempt to drum up interest in a full-blown Bubsy the Bobcat revival. No thanks, we’re good!
Coming soon to Steam... Bubsy? You remember Bubsy, right? It’s OK if you don’t. He was a—shall we say—less-than-beloved platforming mascot from gaming’s early days. A company called Retroism got the rights, and they’re trying to make it through Steam Greenlight. Good luck?
Bubsy is a....not so great series. But you should still try out this bewildering and bizarre 'celebration' of Bubsy. You'll collect yarn balls and fly, as always. You'll also do a bunch of other surprising, kind of WTF things if you stick with this for long enough. And hey! There are cheat codes, for 'replayability'…
Probably every animal species you can think of is playable or can be found in some form in video games, but today we decided to find those games where you can play as a cat. Any cat. Domestic cats or any one of the wild cats: tigers, lions, cheetahs, all included.
Have you ever played a Bubsy game? If you have, you're undoubtedly familiar with the lackluster controls and odd bobcat mascot who talks... a little too much.
If you haven't, JonTron is here to warn you to keep it that way. Leave your 90s gaming memories untarnished by this platformer.
I wouldn't normally…
