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.


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.

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

Finally, a decent Bubsy game. What could possibly go wrong from here?

The long and short of Bubsy: Paws on Fire! Is that it's a running game that isn't particularly difficult, doesn't really stress scores and feels rather hollow. Sure, it's fun and if you like repetitive tasks that reward you for slight improvements, it will certainly shine, otherwise it's just a bland game that is as forgettable as any of the other sequels. Add in a lack of online play or even interesting costumes and it's ultimately a game that coasts on whatever fame Bubsy has and is only really redeemed by having a platinum/variety of achievements that are not particularly hard or engaging to obtain.
