LOAD “”

Before Bubsy became synonim of awful videogame our loved rabbit was a protagonist of good 2D adventures. In an era in which platformer mascots were a legion (Superfrog, Zool, Dynamite Headdy, James Pond a.k.a. Robocod, Rayman, and so on) Super Bubsy was one of those colourful platformers I was more fond of, together with Superfrog. I played it first time thanks (of course) to the pirate compilation Twilight 013 and the game, that I discovered only years later it was simply the port for Windows of Bubsy in: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind although with a different name, got good reviews when it came out. Before Bubsy became the idiot character in an horrible 3D adventure, he used to moonjump, he collected balls of string and jumped on strange raspberring creatures to dispose of them, but in the end it was fun.


Prima che Bubsy 3D diventasse sinonimo di pessimo videogioco il nostro caro coniglio era protagonista di ottime avventure in 2D. In un’epoca in cui le mascotte che apparivano in giochi platform erano veramente tante (Superfrog, Zool, Dynamite Headdy, James Pond a.k.a. Robocod, Rayman, ecc…) Super Bubsy era uno di quei platform colorati ai quali mi ero affezionato di più, proprio assieme a Superfrog. Figlio (ovviamente) dell’ennesima compilation pirata, il Twilight 013, questo gioco, che solo anni dopo ho scoperto che è semplicemente il port per Windows di Bubsy in: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind e ricevette buone recensioni all’uscita. Prima che Bubsy diventasse un idiota protagonista di una vomitevole avventura in 3D saltava come se fosse sulla luna, collezionava gomitoli e faceva fuori strane  bestiacce che facevano le pernacchie, ma alla fin dei conti era divertente.
