[SNES] Bubsy Two-Fur @ Steam

Post by dreimer »

Another funny addition from something far away from SNES, but... for SNES.
You can get a PC re release for Bubsy 1 and 2 on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/426630/Bubsy_TwoFur/
This title is quite simple on file base:
Bubsy Two-Fur.exe (Illegal used SNES9x emulator with a few gimmicks https://twitter.com/Lord_Nightmare/stat ... 2788502528 )
bubsy_0 (Unknown SNES ROM. This is the game select menu booting on game start, a real SNES ROM!)
bubsy_1 (Bubsy 1 SNES ROM, no known one, one binary difference to Bubsy in - Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (USA).sfc)
bubsy_2 (Bubsy 2 SNES ROM, no known one, two binary differences to Bubsy II (USA).sfc)
game.cfg (Some binary...)

BSNES loves all of them, Game Header looks like it does too.

I am surprised to only learn now there actually was a real PC port of Bubsy 1 (on Windows 95) called Super Bubsy.
I recall there were a bunch of console game ports announced but it seemed like few actually made it to release (weren't there rumors back then of like Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger when Square started doing PC games? Not like current mobile ports that are more likely to exist.). I suspected Bubsy is not a game that was likely to make it. But apparently ATI of all people did it. :D

But it was probably an obscure and forgotten port and probably a good reason this Steam release didn't re-use it and instead went with the simpler approach of emulator+ROM.

The company who licensed these two games called Retroism made even more ports in the same way as it seems. Check Steam and see about 30 others of that kind. (https://store.steampowered.com/curator/35581101) Other consoles and PC, too. It's sad that the emulator was used without asking the right guys, but the idea is not bad at all. I just wonder what these binary differences are in there for.
