The meaning of «bubsy in fractured furry tales»

Bubsy in: Fractured Furry Tales[a] is a platform video game developed by Imagitec Design and published by Atari Corporation exclusively for the Atari Jaguar in North America on December 9, 1994, then in Europe on January 1995 and later in Japan by Messe Sansao on July of the same year.[1][2][3] It is the third entry in the Bubsy franchise, which is preceded by Bubsy in: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind and Bubsy 2. The title itself is a word play in reference to Fractured Fairy Tales, a segment from the animated television series The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends.

When all of the fairy tales suddenly become corrupted, Bubsy is now tasked on venturing through Fairytaleland and fixing them in order to protect all of the children in the world from these altered stories. Originally planned and advertised to be a port of the first entry in the series as part of a deal with Accolade for the Jaguar, Bubsy in: Fractured Furry Tales later became its own original title during development, while retaining all the gameplay elements from the original game.[4][5][6]

Bubsy in: Fractured Furry Tales received mixed reception since its release. While some critics praised the game's graphics, music and difficulty, others panned the controls, camera, level design, voice acting and personality of the main character. Reviewers also criticized the game for its lack of use of the hardware and compared it to the previous 16-bit iterations. By April 1, 1995, the game had sold less than 9,000 copies, though it is unknown how many were sold in total during its lifetime.[7] The series continued with Bubsy 3D, which was released in 1996 for the PlayStation. Retrospective reviews for the title have been equally mixed in recent years.

Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales is a side-scrolling platform game in which the players take control of Bubsy, the game's protagonist, across five worlds comprising three levels each that are themed after well-known fairy tales that have been corrupted such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Jack and the Beanstalk, Ali Baba, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and Hansel and Gretel to restore them back into their original state.[8][9][10][11] Although it plays very similarly to the previous two entries in the series, the game has more emphasis towards puzzle elements in order to progress through the levels themselves and it closely follows the design and mechanics from the original title. While it has a password feature that allows players to resume their last progress, the cartridge's internal EEPROM only saves high scores and other settings made by them. The game also has a two-player option which allows two players to play the game by alternating turns with either one or two controllers.

The player must maneuver Bubsy through the levels by jumping and gliding, while also collecting objects scattered across the levels that grant points, now called Bubsy Balls instead of the orbs and yarn balls from previous titles and when 500 are collected, an extra life is granted and more lives can be earned by collecting numbered t-shirts. Players start off with nine lives at the beginning of the game, which are lost if Bubsy comes into contact with an enemy or an enemy attack, falls into either a spiked pit, a body of water or from heights without gliding, gets crushed, or running out of time and once all lives are lost the game is over, though players can keep playing from the last level they died by finding a continue item.
