Here is my pick for one of the most underrated video game characters ever, as well as a personal favorite of mine. Before I made the jump over to the SNES and RPGs I would play games on the Sega Genesis. Bubsy being one of those games. Is it a perfect game? No. But I feel like it gets a bum rep from its ultimate successor, Bubsy 3D. That game is so horrendous that people assume the first 3 games are also just as terrible. I canít speak much for the third installment, but the 1st two games are pretty good, with the 1st being my favorite. Granted the controls arenít perfect but it still handles well. And plus there are puns. So many puns! I love puns!
Iíll be the first to admit that to this day I have never beaten the first Bubsy. As a child, I would always get frustrated after losing time and time again. The one hit kill system was hard for me to get past. That being said, Iíve only known one person to beat this game, my grandmother. She loved playing the Sega Genesis. Her favorite games were Sonic Spinball, Boogerman, and Bubsy(s) 1 & 2. To be honest Iíve only ever beaten 1 out of the 4 games that I just listed. I gave up on them because they were too hard for me when I was a kid. My grandmother taught me that with a little hard work and dedication, as well as grinding for lives, anything could be accomplished.
So this perler sprite is for her. I wish I could have made it for her before she passed but now it will serve as a memory of all of the things that she taught me throughout the years.
