I enjoyed Bubsy for SNES back in the day.
It is a fun game with some good music (at least on first stage).
Bubsy Snes OST :
The gameplay is not great, but had good mechanics like the glider. And this was fast,
a Sonic like game engine on Snes, without blast processing.
I had a friend who where crazy about this game. It certainly is not on my worst game list.
I remember be intrigued about wtf bobcat is, short tail wild cats do not exist in my country.
We have ocelots.
Bubsy is the ET the Extra-terrestrial equivalent for 16 bit machines.
It IS a bad game overall, but not an abomination as internet depicts.
The main problem is the bad game physics and unforgiving collision IMHO.
But the graphics and character/game design was really good.
On the opposite spectrum is Puggsy, a Sega Genesis platformer game with great physics but poor
character and game design. You can't have the best of both worlds.
Buggsy would be a real winner!
Anyway, Bubsy 2 was a disappointment. I not liked that game at all, unfunny and with bad music.
There's a reason, it was not made by the original programmer/creator.
I had never played the Jaguar version but looks bad nonetheless.
