Bubsy the Woolies Strike Back! is an all new Bubsy adventure featuring Bubsy in a bevy of exotic locations as he travels the planet looking for the beloved Golden Fleece.

The wisecracking lynx also adds over a 100 new one liners to his lexicon to keep fans guessing what he’ll say next.

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is a wholly unremarkable experience. The presentation, controls, and level design are all lacking, and the handful of stages offer little variety. It’s not the worst platformer ever – it’s not even the worst Bubsy game – it’s simply inconsequential, forgettable, and bland in every aspect. Fans of the original games may get a kick out of this, but even they may feel disappointed by the bobcat’s latest, and probably last, adventure.

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is an extremely short and completely forgettable platformer based on nothing but irony and nostalgic notoriety. I’d honestly rather replay the original Bubsy than this - for all of its serious flaws, at least that game was memorable. The Woolies Strike Back isn’t even that.

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back has a degree of retro appeal and may even stir up fond memories if you were around for Bubsy’s first outing. But it’s so unremarkable that it never really manages to get its claws into you.

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back may not be perfect, but it’s easily the best Bubsy game ever made. As a side-scrolling platformer, it’s a rock-solid entry in the genre. Bubsy now controls far better than he did in prior games and while there is an issue with a lack of life within the character due to poor body language, it’s a worthwhile pickup for platformer buffs. His new pounce is tough to learn, but is an effective tool to quickly run through the game.

If that type of level design was seen in the main game (and there was simply more to do in general), then we’d be looking at a very different game. There’s potential for Bubsy to be a relevant 2D platformer in the future, and I’d like to see Accolade take another shot at bringing the furball back to prominence.

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back underwhelms and disappoints at every turn. Bland level design never improves, and tedious boss battles are unrewarding and unsatisfying. Bubsy's return 21 years later could have reminded us why he was once considered a potential peer to the likes of Mario and Sonic. Instead, The Woolies Strike Back only serves to remind us why the mascot hasn't seen a new adventure in over two decades.

The return of Bubsy is a travesty. He was a remnant of a forgotten age that should have stayed in the past. Nothing about this reboot feels good and the criminally short play time is the final nail in the coffin. Very few people asked for the resurrection of Bubsy, and after his comeback, even less will want him to return again.

Bubsy may be a nostalgic part of some gamers childhood as a weird and obscure platformer at the time, but bringing him to current gen while changing nothing was an insurmountable mistake. If you have a few bucks to spare and need a platformer to distract the kids, maybe it’s worthwhile. Maybe.

If you are really dedicated to the character, I would wait until it drops to around $5 or $10. Once you beat the game, Accolade promises that “Bubsy will be back soon,” so let’s just hope his next outing is funnier, lengthier, and more memorable than Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back. Bubsy 3D 2 anyone?

What looks like a harmless return to the Bubsy franchise quickly becomes a clear lesson in laziness. Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back takes no time to show how little effort was put into a simple platformer. From the controls to the overall spirit of the game, it’s hard to recommend anyone try it out, even at its “low” price.

Ya lo avisamos al principio, y es que hubiese sido mejor dejar a Bubsy en el trastero de la memoria guardado en un cajón de la nostalgia. Porque Bubsy: the Woolies Strike Back es un plataformas simplón, carente de carisma y repetitivo en cuanto a mecánicas y situaciones jugables. Tanto es así que llega a hacerse largo por lo aburrido que resulta y eso que no es que sea un juego extenso en cuanto a contenido. Una pena.
Carlos Leiva — Nov 05, 2017
Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back es un juego de plataformas fiel a sus orígenes y al personaje, algo que en cualquier otro juego podría ser considerado como algo positivo pero que en este caso solo se puede traducir en una jugabilidad poco depurada, en un mal diseño de niveles y en un título genérico y aburrido con un protagonista sin carisma alguno.

Ca fait bien longtemps qu'on n'a pas vu pareille croûte testée sur Gamekult, et rien que pour ça on peut être redevable à Bubsy : The Woolies Strike Back. Le jeu d'Accolade nous rappelle qu'entre plusieurs AA(A) plus ou moins homogènes niveau finition, il existe encore une fosse pleine de daubes à l'ancienne qu'on voudrait vous refourguer à des tarifs indécents.
