Mr. Personality himself, Bubsy the Bobcat, purr-forms for you in his first starring role, Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind for the Genesis from Accolade. This 16-meg, two-player (turn-taking) action/platform title will have you groaning in dismay and cheering for the smart-aleck cat, as Bubsy makes his way through 16 huge levels of cat-astrophic warfare against the dreaded Woolies. After playing stages like Cheese Wheels of Doom, you'll never be able to look at cheese the same way again!
The storyline is inventive. Woolies from the planet Rayon have stolen all the yam balls on Earth at the behest of their twin queens, Polly and Ester. The two textile queens have depleted their own wool reserves and must steal to power their wool-fired interstellar spacecraft. You as Bubsy, the world's pre-eminent collector of yam balls, are on a quest to retrieve your hoard and send the Woolies packing back to their own unnatural-fiber wasteland.
Bubsy has it all... plenty of hidden areas, power-ups, bonus items, 16 massive levels (called Chapters), passcode save, lots of digitized voices and a terrific original soundtrack. This cat leaps, pounces, soars and runs his way through some great artwork. There are over 40 different animations for Bubsy alone. It's no wonder he has the smoothness of a cartoon character.

There are three village areas in World 1, three state fair areas in World 2, three Old West areas in World 3, three river areas in World 4 and three treetop-forest levels in World 5. The final stage, A Farewell to Woolies, takes place onboard the Woolies' yam-powered mothership. With stage names like No Time to Paws, Dances with Woolies, Beavery Careful and Our Furless Leader, you may receive more punnish-ment than you can ake. You'll even find that the Woolies wear different hats in each World, from Bozo the Clown wigs to Hunter's Caps.
When you finish Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind, you'll definitely want to go lack and play it over to find areas and items you might have missed. This is a personality-filled can that you'll want to play again and again.
