Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales
|Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales|
Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales is a 1994 platforming game published by Accolade for the Atari Jaguar as the third game in the Bubsy series. It is the sequel to Bubsy 2 and is followed by Bubsy 3D, which was the last game in the series for over 21 years until Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back.
Why It Sucks
- It's basically a rehash of the first game, Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind.
- Very poor controls. Jumping is very difficult and you gain momentum after releasing the D-Pad making falling very likely.
- Bubsy dies in one hit like in the first game, a problem which had been corrected for the second game but for some reason is here again.
- Bubsy moves really fast, making it very easy for enemies to hit him.
- Levels are too long and hugely tedious.
- Poor level design. Some areas are very confusing to navigate, they're too long, there are tiny platforms Bubsy must jump onto, etc.
- Terrible enemy placement.
- Absolutely terrible hit detection makes it easy to get hit even when Bubsy is clearly not touching a hazard or enemy.
- Confusing enemies. Balloons can damage Bubsy when he touches it.
- Enemies can kill you before they even do their attack animations.
- Frequent cheap deaths.
- Short, generic music loops.
- The graphics, for an Atari Jaguar game, look average and isn't very nice to look at, the backgrounds look unappealing, as they seem made on a SNES or Sega Genesis, rather than Atari Jaguar, the character and enemy designs are bad, especially Bubsy himself.
- Speaking of presentation, the animation moves a lot more poorly (e.g Bubsy being somewhat distorted due to the limited speed with his death animations). All in comparison to the previous games that actually had good animation.
- Due to a bug, the exclamation mark in Bubsy's shirt is yellow, when it's supposed to be red!
- Speaking of yellow in the box, Bubsy's exclamation mark is red, however, a bug causes the exclamation mark to be yellow. So it's basically misleading to the audience.
- Despite being generic, there are some good songs in the game.
- Aside from the exclamation mark, the front cover of the game box is at a satisfactory level.
