Review: Bubsy - Paws on Fire!

Review: Bubsy - Paws on Fire! screenshot

Once again, '90s kind-of-but-not-quite-an-icon Bubsy the Bobcat has graced video gaming with his presence. Originally appearing in Accolade's 1993 title Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind, Bubsy was one in a long line of wisecracking, committee-cool characters that came along in the wake of Sonic the Hedgehog's success. A totally outrageous paradigm, Bubsy, like so many of his ilk, was The Simpsons' Poochie in all but name.

Bubsy would then occasionally show his face time and again. First reappearing the following year in Bubsy II, the dopey mascot then popped up on the ill-fated Atari Jaguar, and eventually the Sony PlayStation. Only one real thread links all of these games: They aren't very good. Bubsy's inability to skyrocket to stardom like Messrs Sonic and Mario eventually consigned him and his shitty TV pilot to the bin.

All until last year, when Black Forest Games brought the maligned bobcat back for Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back. Was the time right for our boy to make an "ironic" comeback? No, of course not, Bubsy's games were still terrible. Yet here we are, a new year, a new developer, and a new Bubsy. Handed off to Choice Provisions who're well known for their excellent Bit.Trip titles will Bubsy: Paws on Fire be the entry that's finally going to make the perpetual zero a hero? Let's find out.
