Publisher: Accolade

From the developers of the BIT.TRIP series comes Bubsy: Paws on Fire!, the latest and greatest in bobcat-based gaming. Oinker P. Hamm is determined to capture every animal in the universe for his “Amazootorium.” Bubsy, fearing mostly for himself, is just as determined to stop him. Two archrivals, stitched together by the cruel knitting needles of fate. No matter who emerges victorious, there is one thing we know for certain: There’s going to be a whole lot of yarn along the way. So, so much yarn. Features: Four playable characters, each with their own unique mechanics! Fly and shoot your way through the air as The Woolie, take it underground with Arnold’s bonus levels, or run your way to victory with Bubsy and Virgil Reality! An all-new story featuring the unlikely alliance between Bubsy and his archrivals, The Woolies! Over 100 levels set across three different worlds! Three boss battles! A unique combo system and set of leaderboards for every character! A shop with costumes and cosmetics, all of which players can unlock just by playing the game. There are no in-game purchases! Unique character dialog for every level! A variety of collectible types, ensuring maximum replayability!
 The return of Oinker, Terri, Terry, and many other characters from previous Bubsy incarnations! We even have Virgil Reality from the Bubsy cartoon pilot—we dug deep!

No Recommendation / Blank

Beneath the bland mascot lurks a decent arcade game.

Ultimately, however, the repetitive gameplay, bland presentation and hollow world prevents players from immersing themselves in its optimistic spirit. The Bubsy experiment has ended. It's time to let the bobcat go.

An OK-ish platforming game that offers some good humor, but fails in many aspect of the level design.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

It took a little over 25 years, but Bubsy: Paws on Fire is the bobcat's first truly great outing. With a fun, cheeky cast of characters and entertaining core gameplay, you won't have to ask yourself, "What could possibly go wrong?"
