There are a lot of Bubsy haters out there but there are a lot of Bubsy lovers out there too. Personally I loved Busby on my SEGA Mega Drive although I never was able to finish it as it was much harder than the Sonic games lol! I still remember its gorgeous colourful vibrant graphics even today (especially those train and river levels). Darn it I’ll finish it one day (probably through an emulator where I can cheat my ass off lmao)!
I never did get to buy the sequel Busby 2 and apparently I was not missing anything when I didn’t play Bubsy 3D on Playstation as it was labelled one of the worst games on the console which considering how large the PSX library is that is saying something. In fact it was so bad it killed the Busby franchise for nearly 2 decades!
Until recently that is! At the end of 2017 Acclaim released a brand new Bubsy game for PS4 and PC called Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back! It wasn’t a huge hit with reviewers however it must have sold well as now they’ve announced another busy game for 2019 called Bubsy: Paws on Fire which looks like it has some pretty cool alternative game modes such as piloting a Woolies spaceship and first person roller coaster like special levels. Check out the trailers below!
