a game by Accolade
The fearless feline that scratched his way to the top in one of last year's best Action games returns with a whole new look and feel. Now you get to choose from each of the levels at the outset, you get the chance to escape from the level through an emergency exit (an Acme-style Portable Hole), and your bonus stages are great little subgames unto themselves. Collect marbles (yup, he's lost his marbles) and chuck pies at enemies. Some of the early levels seen in our prerelease copy: a pirate theme, an ancient Egypt area, a medieval castle, and a barnstormer stage.
In a world where the question "What could possibly go wrong?" begs a list of seriously catastrophic responses, the bobcat with the extranimble mind and ' fast feet (or was that ear-numbing mouth and fat feet?) takes on his most purr-plexing adventure yet. Bubsy II, from Accolade for the Genesis, brings new meaning to the term yikes!This one- or two-player (turn taking) pounce-fest has Bubsy traipsing through the Amazatorium with more moves, more stuff, more bonus games, and lots more lip.
Swine Flu And Twin Trouble Too
Oinker P. Spamm is a capitalist boar. This pig sold his own sow of a mother down the river. Got $1.89 a pound, too. So anyway, the greedy son-of-a-swine has snagged Virgil Reality's new invention, the WOMPUM (lengthy acronym...it steals history), and has built a theme park, modestly called the Amazatorium.
Our hero with the size 10 ego in a size 2 body has planned to go to the park with his young niece and nephew, the (no, please don't say it) Bubsy Twins. He takes Terry and Terry (hey, they're identical twins!) to the Amazatorium and, with typical Bubsy timing, shows up the day before the park opens. Not to be deterred, the adorable twin purveyors of peril break in and run off. Now ol' Bubs has to enter the park, find the kids, and save history as we know it.
Just another ordinary day in the life of a very extraordinary, fun-loving bobcat.
Bubsy learns a new high-comedic art the hallowed throwing of the cream pie!
Play games like Frogapult, in which you launch (willing) frog participants toward targets in a pool. Wheeeee!
Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep and the fleecy little ba-a-ad boys are attacking Bubsy. Watch out for their dangerous and high-powered Bleet.
Stuck in a level? Not anymore, you aren't. Use your handy-dandy Portable Hole to exit stage left.
C'mon, billy boy. Quit acting like a goat.
Bubsy has always hated water (except to drink, and even there he prefers milk). Keep him safe in his new Diving Bell. Ever hear the term "bell the cat"?
Run at bobcat speed into a wall — we dare ya. Look at Bubsy's spinning skull. Linda Blair look out. You've got nuthin' on Bubs.
Hight-tech Hairball Hijinks
Oinker P. Hamm has hijacked Dr. V. Reality's WOMPUM (a mouthful of an acronym for a machine that steals history) and built his own indoor amusement park.
The pig calls it the Amazatorium, and as you might imagine, he's in hog heaven charging folks to see what was rightfully theirs to begin with.
Our fearless (or was that peerless?) hairbaii takes his niece and nephew, the Bubsy Twins (Terri and Terry) to see the park, and with typical Bubsy timing, he's a day early and a marble short.
The twins take it upon themselves to hightail it into the park while Uncle Bubsy's not paying attention (this guy has the attention span of a houseplant).
Now our fur-brained friend has to sneak into the park and find them.
Bodacious Bunches of Bubsy
Bubsy II offers more types of play than a deck of cards.
(Note: The previous line was a blatant exaggeration and we don't know how it snuck in.)
The Amazatorium has three floors and two wings—East and West.
Each Tour increases in challenge, starting with the First Floor Tour, then up to the Second and Third Floor Tours, with the largest and most difficult being the Grand Tour.
- All the switches in Egypt look like a lion's head.
- Look Up and Down before leaping.
- Get bunches of lives at the Gift Shop (when you complete a level).
- You can revisit levels to collect lives before hitting the Boss doors.
- Follow the arrows, but note that they get fewer and farther between as you move up the floors.
- The East Wing Grand Tour is slightly harder than the West Wing version.
The cat with the chat is back.
A catchy new catastrophe is about to befall Mr. Personality (better known around these climes as Mr. Mouth).
Bubsy II from Accolade puts the famous-in-his-own-mind furball in a one- or two-player battle against a swine named Oinker P. Hamm and his henchhogs.
You'll swoon (or at least marvel) at the number of new things Bubsy can do in this cataclysmic Adventure.
You can catapult through any of the worlds (in any order), get catatonic over bunches of new usable items, play through a game catacombed with funny new subgames, and best of all, cat-fight a capitalist boar with your favorite cat-o'-nine-lives.
