Alien 3 Edition

snescapades podcast 61: Alien 3, Bubsy 1, and Congo's Caper

We’ve got three 2D, sidescrollers today. Some are alright, some aren’t very good. None are amazing. None are awful. One has some cool things that make it stand out, another is interesting in the ways it falls short, and the last isn’t really interesting at all, but won’t ruin your day.

We start with Alien 3, and though proper horror isn’t really something that Nintendo of America seemed interested in bringing stateside, games like this were about as close as we’d get. 

Then it’s off to Bubsy: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind, a game that we will address as Bubsy 1 from here on out. We discuss the rather infamous, and persistant franchise that began with this game before talking about what works and what doesn’t. Was Bubsy doomed from the start, or was there some potential that was just never realized?

Finally, we talk about Congo’s Caper. It’s fine.
