Bubsy II Review


A side-scrolling platformer video game developed and published by Accolade for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis in 1994. It is the sequel to the original 1992 Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind. The player controls Bubsy, a bobcat, as he travels through several levels, each filled with enemies and power-ups. The game also features some bonus rounds in which the player can compete for extra lives. The goal of the game is to collect enough points to progress to the next level. Bubsy II is noted for being one of the few sequels to a platformer game to be released on home consoles.

It is like upgrade  to the first one which makes the gameplay bit more fun or easy since you get more hits but it is still a hard game but I do feel it should be credited more as good game not purely known as simply Sonic or Mario clone as many people class it has many different elements to it such as this one you start in a very Egyptian feel to which is cool seeing the cats or other things from the famous part of Egypt time period.

Shows time 13.33 and also the bobcat in like ancient Egyptian time period with a moving cat as well

Jumping is fun seeing the effect when you hit the effect for the attack looks very pleasant to one's eyes to me.

The bonus sort of like parts of the game where you collect the balls is a lot of fun nothing to complain about here and falling in the water can kill you as well so be aware of that and moving fast around the water has in some cases like racing game effect to how fast things move here which can be a lot of fun and I would say Bubsy has very good facial expressions something I don't think any other videogame mascot ever could do in regards to the 16 bit time period.

If you never played a platformer before then this game is probably the wrong one for you since it's tough one to win at overall but with enough practice, you can win at as they say practice makes perfect like always.

The time limit to me is quite fair in this game overall which is good since a lot of games during the time period give you to little time to complete things easy overall. 

Another reason for the bad reputation of Bubsy games is that the series was marketed as a mascot for the company Accolade, similar to how Sonic was for Sega and Mario for Nintendo. However, the character of Bubsy failed to capture the same level of popularity and appeal as those other iconic characters. This, combined with the game's poor design, made it difficult for the series to gain a dedicated fanbase.

Furthermore, the series was known for its poor sense of humor that often relied on jokes that were not funny or were outright offensive. This also contributed to the negative reputation of the series.

In summary, the Bubsy series of games has gained a bad reputation due to a combination of poor game design, uninspired level design, clunky controls, repetitive gameplay, a poorly designed main character, a poor sense of humor and the failure to capture the same level of popularity and appeal as other platforming mascots.

   Controls really suck here even getting attack on a keyboard more less impossible to do here you would need a controller to have any fun but I doubt the controls would really get much better. Graphics look very 1990s here but with better controls it could had being like possible competitor to street fighter instead of like cheap rip of here for how it looks to me and most others I doubt it would had any serious fans unless they never played street  when they first got the game or had no other games making it's low quality seem in theory high quality to a small amount of people in some cases. All the moves look very bad display wise to me.

Doraemon 3: Nobita to Toki no Hougyoku

 Great music here one of the best ever heard from the Snes but I suspect over the popularity of this animation show for why they put so much of effort into music here. You get different characters with the fat  guy having spinning attack which can take down more less  any enemy close combat wise so good specialist attack for that area. You get boy with like shooting attack better for long-distance attacks here. Has a good feel to platformer elements plus you can  get health back by collecting hearts or upgrades to your health amount or get health back from like inn setup in the storyline it seen by many people as like the best Doraemon game for the Snes.

Secret of mana

  The starting part of the game you see the Mana Empire building in action used by the Empire in the past or present during the game the future screen you see is very well designed to me looks wise and the dark green and the blue lights on the power part of it look fantastic to me.  A role playing game released on the  Super Nintendo  it was for many people one of the world best RPG games since for older consoles it had many impressive features to name a few would include Dragons Cannons Magic Weapons many kinds Three main characters Special abilities Mana sword The dragons when you get the device to summon it allows you to call for a dragon which can then fly you to any location on the map when you see the map from the dragon's viewpoint the graphics look incredible for 16 bit machine which is very impressive showing the lack of graphic possible ways of the past it could pass in some ways as better than a decent amount of modern games for the graphic in some ways.
