Bubsy (in Fractured Fairy Tales, to give the game its full title) is another okay-to-middling platform game that stands out like a sore thumb on the Atari Jaguar.
It stands out on the system because most of the competition is so bad, and this 1994 game just happens to be actually quite good. A bit like Rayman on the Jaguar – Bubsy is a classic by accident…
As a character, Bubsy never really did anything for me, and the games: I could take them or leave them. But playing Bubsy on the Jaguar filled me with joy, because it was at least a half-decent game on the system.
A decent 2D platform game, with smooth scrolling backgrounds, lovely sprites and precise climbing and jumping. What more could you ask for?
