Felix the Cat (Genesis)
Felix the Cat (Кот Феликс) is an unauthorized port of the NES game of the same name by Hudson Soft. It was created in Russia. The developer is not credited anywhere in the game, but it's assumed it was developed by BMB, and it is known that it was published by KDS (Kudos).
Why It Sucks
Note: This is only for the Genesis port, The other versions are fine and more family-friendly.
- No boss battles at all unlike the original NES version.
- The game over screen in this port is extremely disturbing! Similar to Quest for Camelot for Game Boy Color's game over screen. Young gamers would be deeply scared by it. Joel from Vinesauce found it terrifying. It's nothing like the NES original's game over which shows Felix knocked out at some alley at night.
- Stolen pictures. The aforementioned game over screen is actually a t-shirt design the developers plagiarized.
- Poor controls.
- Unfitting sound effects, at some point, they are unexisting due to the music's volume.
- Flawed gameplay. Controlling Felix is hard due of poor programming.
- Horrible ending. It's just a image of Felix with his girlfriend and some text.
- Poor AI.
- This game is so short. You can finish this game in 13 minutes.
- False advertising: The rating on the cover is rated 6+, but in the game it has gory humor.
- Unlike the other BMB Games, this game is a lot like the actual cartoon. (Minus the game over screen). Examples include: Felix having has trademark Magic Bag of Tricks, having him save his actual girlfriend, looking a lot like the original cartoon, and acting like he would in the show.
- Nice graphics.
- The level designs are okay.
- Decent soundtrack that you can listen to .
- This game was later banned in Russia due of its aforementioned game over screen but you can download this game in other websites.
- The level selection screen can be accessed by pausing the game, pressing the C, Up, Down and Right buttons at least 25 times each. A similar cheat code reportedly works on both Chip 'n Dale ports, as well as Darkwing Duck, but it's worth mentioning that the screen itself is exactly the same all throughout and that it says the following: "Code Screen. If you're reading this, then you're either a cheater or the greatest ever developer of this game. Now choose your round, mortal!!!", followed by the word "level" and what appears to be the current version of the game.
- The continue and the game over themes, as well as sound effects, come from the Mega Drive/Genesis port of Uwol: The Quest for Money. It should be noted that all the sound in both Uwol and Felix the Cat is handled by Shiru's TFM Music Maker, and because the developers of Felix seemingly didn't want to bother with doing original music, this is also the reason to the in game music playlist's incoherence.
- It spawned the HET meme.
