Wild Woody sounds and looks like a sex offender.

Not the worst game ever made, but this shit stuck out to me as a kid as an embarrassing focus group created mascot.

This literal who (even though I kinda like the game) clockwork knight too. And Astal. The Saturn was honestly full of them. And none of them were necessarily bad games, just not anywhere close to mario/sonic/crash tier.

>> No.5700739

Astal isn't a mascot. BUG! certainly is, though, and is pretty embarrassing.

I never played any games of this franchise, but I always found the cover interesting. Are they any good?

Zero. Kamikaze. Flying Squirrel.

I fucking love it.

To be fair, he actually was Xbox's defacto mascot for a while after release. That was back when most people considered Master Chief to be too generic to be the Xbox's Mario. Needless to say, it only lasted like half a year.

>> No.5700972

It is good, but it is a puzzle platformer more like Lost Vikings than Sonic the Hedgehog.

He sold well and his games were at the very least, solid. No idea how Square Enix could've let this IP rot.

Bonkers was created after Disney realized they wouldn't be able to use Roger Rabbit. It's not his fault

That is truly an awful abomination of a mascot.

I'm told Blinx was supposed to be their mascot as well at one point? You'd think they'd push Banjo hard after buying Rare but they just fucking sat on all those IPs and barely did a damn thing with them.

What's the deal with scotformer mascots and their habit of showing their callipygian buttocks to the viewer? Bubsy did this in bubsy 2.

Big recommendation. Close to a 10/10. Exoddus is great too, it streamlines some of the gameplay and adds a bunch of abilities.

All of these games itt are peak scotformer material. Just cynically made platformers designed by focus groups in order to create the next big thing; bonus points if there's no synergy between the character and the game mechanics.

We don't even have 7up here in my country, so I just grew up wondering why did they make so many shitty games with the same horrible mascot. I thought it was another Bubsy kinda stuff, but at least Spot had a big company shilling him.

You know, I remember liking this show as a kid but it was because of the humans in the show and not Bonkers himself.

I loved this game as a kid. He's probably middle-of-the-pack in terms of video game corporate mascots, if not recognition.

It's awesome, it's like they designed a game around Sonic 3 shields.
