    A surprisingly fun game that blew me away. I enjoyed all the different characters the graphics are decent and best of all, it isn't boring or unfair. A simple but fun game. Get the game while it's on sale for a good deal!

    Bubsy Paws On fire
    Infuriating unfun, but addicting
    Bubsy Paw on fir is a 6 hour long basically endless runner platformer where you play as 3 characters, bubsy virgil, and woolie And I hate everything about it. The game starts with Bubsy being an unlikable douchebag.. yay cant wait to play as this character. But basically this is a score chase with 3 worlds and 9 levels in each…

    But basically this is a score chase with 3 worlds and 9 levels in each…
    Sounds like nothing, and youd be right…
    however theres a catch.. you have to unlock levels with medals much like a kart racing campaign
    so youre forced to play every level 2 to 3 times as all 3 characters
    thankfull all 3 charcters levels are different
    Bubsy is a very beginner friendly platformer, you can jump, glide, and slam through enemies, virgils levels are easily the hardest of them all, as he cant kill enemies or soar.. youre relying on his double jumps and slides… and then heres woolie which is a shooter level and my favorite and also the easiest of the 3…
    Bubsy Paws on fire just feels lazy, the level design is unmemberable prcedirually generated feeling garbage
    However.. the spice of chalklenge Bubsy Paws on fire offers makes it so hard to put down.
    That’s right.. I hate bubsy paws on fire and I hate myself from not being able to stop playing…
    Going through levels as all characters, collecting the 3 pieces to unlock a bonus level for a bonus medal… dying over and over again all while doing this… soending hours on the stupid bubble level boss
    I couldn’t stop playing… it got its hooks in me and I hate that I couldn’t walk away without reaching the end…
    Bubsy Paws on fire still at the end of the day is a lazily designed game
    But it does have that one more try, 1 life per checkpoint hook to it if youre a monster like me into that kind of thing sometimes
    I give Bubsy Paws on Fire
    a 5/10

    Honestly, It’s Decent
    Though it has some issues and is a little annoying at times, Paws On Fire is definitely an enjoyable game.

    Bubsy is back with a vengeance in the new high octane bubsy paws on fire, pick from a whopping 4 funny hilarious characters and play a re-branding of an already released game...but with bubsy...from the 1993 title...called bubsy...

    Bubsy: Paws on Fire's biggest problem is its branding. The game is a perfectly fun and competent runner tied to a mascot who (as near as I can tell) only exists for irony value. The game is straitlaced about Bubsy, so it doesn't feel like a joke, but it also seems like the mascot does more to drive away people than to pique their interest. If you enjoyed the Runner3 style of gameplay, then you'll enjoy Bubsy: Paws on Fire. If you didn't, then the addition of a cartoon cat probably isn't going to change your mind. It's still the best Bubsy game to date, though.

    For being handed what I would consider a horribly tainted license, Choice Provisions did well combining their expertise with it to make something pretty good. I would still recommend their own Runner series before recommending Bubsy: Paws on Fire, but any fan of those titles looking for can’t go wrong with this game. Bubsy: Paws on Fire is hands down the best Bubsy game. Anyone with any nostalgia for this despicable bobcat should find enjoyment here, even if in only short bursts.

    It took a little over 25 years, but Bubsy: Paws on Fire is the bobcat’s first truly great outing. With a fun, cheeky cast of characters and entertaining core gameplay, you won’t have to ask yourself, “What could possibly go wrong?”
