You can only change one aspect of the gameplay or presentation. What is it?
>>
>>2912196
Make him trans.
>>
Give him a health meter with at least 3 hits before death.
>>
>>2912196
No more fall-deaths.
>>
>>2912268
I almost said this, but hp would likely mean fuck-all when it comes to those fall deaths.
>>
>>2912272
Those are easily avoided with the glide feature.
>>
>>2912279
Bubsy can glide? I haven't played this since, probably, 1994.

Regardless, fall deaths are lame as shit.
>>
You know what? Fuck Bubsy. This is now a Rad Gravity thread.
>>
>>2912292
This is your cue to leave the thread.
>>
You can't deny it. The music is top notch! And what other game has an entire level played upside down?

As if Rad Gravity wasn't badass enough already, his sprite looks just like Bruce Cambell.
>>
>presentation change
Neglect to present it at all.

A way bigger field of vision OR some kind of mechanic to prevent instadeath, like Sonic's rings.
>>
>>2912196

Some sort of spin attack that can be used while going fast.

If 0-1: No time limit
If 2-3: No fall damage
If 3-4: Fix the fucked up aerial momentum
If 5-6: Give Bubsy a spinning dash like Sonic so you run safely instead of awkwardly tiptoeing
If 7-8: Give the game some story context, so you're not running through random levels for no reason and collecting yarn balls for no reason.
If 9 or dubs: REMOVE CADE and replace him with another failed mascot.
>>
>>2912196
I make it a good game.
>>
>>2912196
Remove all vertical scrolling so that you don't have to worry about blind jumps/glides and falling death. Bonus feature: this also eliminates the fall damage.
>>
Make bubsy get a tactical nuke after 25 kills
>>
Give bubsy a pompador, large chin, and raygun.
>>
>>2912196
Replace Bubsy with a generously endowed naked woman. Then we have the worlds best pornographic platformer.
>>
>>2912591
>best
I'm gonna need a list of competitors
>>
Howabout make him Japanese developed?

I've always had a theory, Bubsy was intended to have a gun and they only removed it very late in the production. He just has too much momentum and he literally flies smashing into foes. A gun would solve all these problems.

He would be a Jazz Jackrabbit of sorts.
>>
>>2912196
THAT FUCKING VOICE JESUS
>>
>>2912272

>All that whining over fall deaths, every time

he can GLIDE for fucks sake! I dies many deaths in the game but falling wasn't one of them, except if it was intentional to see the animation.
>>
>>2913021
>I didn't fall off the screen because gliding!
>I just crashed into shit all the time, also because gliding!

That's honestly two symptoms of the same problem, and the only one here whining is you.
>>
>>2912309
>And what other game has an entire level played upside down?

Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa.

The genre's a lot more common than you may think.

Also huge titties are overrated.

Guns solve many problems.

>>2913021
>he can GLIDE
Not well enough.
>>
>>2913021
Most emushits just download 10,000 roms and play them randomly for 10 seconds, obviously without reading the manual and many times don't bother to press all the buttons.

Whatever impression they have of these games is taken from 1/4 to 1/2 of the first level.
>>
>>2913136

I'm pretty sure most people got mad about Bubsy because they've rented/bought and played it when they were young and really expected a pretty good platformer, which even without any of these problems it wouldn't be.
>>
>>2912196
Adjust his controls, making him going running progressively not as fast, and having more control in his jumpings. Basically make him an enjoyable to control platformer.
>>
>>2913193

Get a room full of monkeys to randomly pound their fists into a keyboard, then use that to program the video game. There is no way that randomly generated code could make a worse game.
>>
>>2913021
No, knuckles the Echidna glides, Bubsy just sucks gravity's cock enough that it gives him a free pass every now and then.
>>
>>2912570
kek
>>
>>2912918
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?!?!
>>
>>2912196

Make the level design and level themes less convoluted, especially at the start.
>>
>>2913158
This is my experience the game. Haven't played it in ages because it's fucking terrible.
>>
>>2913109
>Guns solve many problems.
Oh, I agree.

But seriously, go play the first level of Bubsy 1 at least, and imagine your character had a gun...

It just fits perfectly.
>>
>>2913136
>emushits
Listen here nigger: I rented this bullshit back in 94 and hated it more than Gadget Twins for Master System. Belive it or not, some people just don't have shit taste in games.
>>
>>2913136
>emushits
Except this game was poorly received back in it's day, all the people I talk to who have actually played it will give you the same negative impression.

Bubsy was never good.
Never ever. No matter how much you try to deflect criticism on the dreaded 'emushits' or 'e-celeb' boogeymen.
>>
>>2913813
>But seriously, go play the first level of Bubsy 1 at least
I don't want to

>and imagine your character had a gun...
So he can shoot himself?

>It just fits perfectly.
He needs more than that. Sure, you can shoot with a gun, it'd vastly improve gameplay, but the gun can't treat Bubsy terminal cancer that is the overrall bad gameplay.

>>2913816
This, Tittyfucking Christ, only total autists will valiantly defend a below average platformer with a forced meme mascot.
>>
I have no clue how this shitty fucking game got 3 sequels and a handheld port.
>>
>>2913158
>>2913816
>>2914801
I never said it wasn't a bad game, fucking reading comprehension guys.

I just said many people didn't even know he could glide because they never bothered to press Y.
>>
>>2914837
It's hard to tell because the BIDF has been sighted rather frequently on /vr/ the past year
>>
>>2914946
Lol, Bubsy Internet Defense Force.

That made me chuckle.

Here, have literally the only good thing to ever come out of Bubsy.

https://youtu.be/_WLIA-z2GVU
>>
>>2914965
That'd be Bubsy Internet Denial Force

I've once seen a guy defend Dragon's Lair for the NES but I've never seen multiple individuals so adamantly defend such a poor game.
>>
>>2915013
Well, in Dragon's Lair's defense the animation and setting was beautiful...

If there was a hack that sped up Dirk and actually made the lifebar matter and it didn't have the stupid elevator that one wrong stop makes you replay a level, I'd say it would be a decent game.

The pc version "Super Bubsy" supposedly fixed these problem:
https://youtu.be/5xYMTsANw28
The video lacks the soundtrack btw.
>>
>>2913080
Yeah, but it's not this fucking Rad.
>>
>>2912196
I never much cared for bubsy. It's not my place to edit the works of the original developers. This was their artistic creation. I'm not against romhacks. I'm just saying the original deserves to be left unchanged. Preserve the original first and create your own version second.
>>
>>2912543
>Give the game some story context, so you're not running through random levels for no reason and collecting yarn balls for no reason.
What. The game came with a fucken comic. It had more story than most platformers.
>>
>>2915774
Lol, what the fuck was it?
>>
>>2915114

The clusterfuck backgrounds were solved, it's already a damn good thing. It would be nice if the game zoomed out when Bubsy started running, and if his jumping animation were able to kill enemies the whole time and at every angle, just like Sonic jump.
>>
> what would you change?
I'd change it to a better game.
>>
>>2915030
> in Dragon's Lair's defense the animation and setting was beautiful...
Not as beautiful as the actual Dragon's Lair, it had a lot of animation frames, but ultimately it was one of the worst platformers on the NES.

>If there was a hack that sped up Dirk and actually made the lifebar matter and it didn't have the stupid elevator that one wrong stop makes you replay a level, I'd say it would be a decent game.
That's a start but there's honestly more that could be done.
