It kind of peaked in the early-mid 90s, actually, with stuff like Cool Spot, Chester Cheetah Cheese Cat-astrophe, Chex Quest, Pepsiman, McDonald's Treasure Land...
Wow. I thought that kind of marketing died with the 2600.
Hmm, I doubt don't that the game has it's fans but when the reviews used as evidence to claim it received critical acclaim consists only of reviews from magazines that exist solely to promote the platform the game is exclusive to I have to take it with a grain of salt. Same goes for Nintendo Power and Playstation... whatever doing the same thing.Since it came out?
it's one of those failed mascots trying to be Sonic, like Bubsy, Aero the Acrobat or Gex mixed with being a british thing (i guess trying to be the Amiga's Sonic) yeah i get why, i only know Zool from retro game reviewers like the AVGN...Of all the 90s mascots, I do not remember who the fuck this is.
I don't know this fool
Gex is nothing like Sonic lol?it's one of those failed mascots trying to be Sonic, like Bubsy, Aero the Acrobat or Gex mixed with being a british thing (i guess trying to be the Amiga's Sonic) yeah i get why, i only know Zool from retro game reviewers like the AVGN...
it was literaly advertised as a "Sonic Killer" though..Gex is nothing like Sonic lol?
I'd argue Bubsy plays better than Zool, I think Zool is only fast because he is a Ninja, I'm not even sure it's trying to he a Sonic clone, just people make the comparison because he's fast.
Zool actually released close to Sonic predating nearly all the clones so I think it's just a coincidence Zool is fast not that it matters the game is terrible.
Banjo Kazooie is one thing.This of all things gets a modern reboot while Banjo, Kazooie, and Conker continue to lay in their coffins.
There is no justice in this world.
Then all the more reason to actually do something useful with these IPs, no? I didn't even know what the fuck Zool was before clicking on this thread. Meanwhile, you have people asking for sequels to the IPs I mentioned for 20 years and no dice.Banjo Kazooie is one thing.
Also Zool is a cheap 2D game lol, you're talking about games that used to be big graphical pushers on the console they were on, in 3D.
