While investigating Professor Stinkbaum's lab, Boogerman stumbles upon a strange machine that opens a portal to another dimension.

Almost everybody knows Earthworm Jim - But Boogerman, which was created inbetween the first two Jim games, is much less familiar. This is a bit unjust, as it's every bit as quirky and fun as the aforementioned series.Boogerman stars Snotty Ragsdale, a...

This game really seems to show off the Megadrive's ability to display the colour green..............................

I've never played this game, but I remember reading about the gross humor this game featured. As a matter of fact, short of the commercials, this is the only time I've seen actual gameplay footage. The animations looks spectacular for the 16-bit generation, I'll give it that. Past that, I see no reason for me to download this one when available. I'd rather see Conker 64 on the VC if I wanted a potty humor fix (which I know may never happen).

Umm...replace "may" with "will" and you'll have it right, Thomas. No amount of wishful thinking could change that, especially not after Live and Reloaded. Don't miss Boogerman, though, it's a good game. I'd prefer to see the SNES version on VC, but Genesis is better than not at all, especially if you've never played the game.

Makes me wonder when the flatulent, greenhouse gas emitting sequel, "Fartman" is coming out.

Fun character, but the game gets boring once the novelty of tossing boogers and farting wears off. The graphics hurt my eyes, but I did like the quirky soundtrack.

Yuck! This game would have been embarressing back when I was a kid! I'm too old for this now, no matter if it's good or not, I don't like potty jokes anymore.

@arobo. Yeah! All those shades of green, black, and brown look REAL snazzy and detailed! Sarcasm aside, I will say that this game sure does animate well, especially for it's time.

And yea, this game sure does seem like a relic from the Ren & Stimpy era, which it is. Sorry, but I don't find gratutious toilet humor very amusing anymore. That's soooo 1993. :P

probably my most rented SNES game. I LOVED THIS GAME. I liked it because i was at that age where "Fart" jokes were funny. It was difficult and i remember the feeling of achievment when i finally beat it. but I think if i played it nowadays i would find it to be Lame and boring.

This game wasn't very good in its own time, and the years haven't been kind to it, gameplay wise.

Not happening. Lucusarts for whatever reason want to deny they ever had a past that was making good non-Star Wars games.

Pocketim, it was rated MA-13. The old-school version of a Teen rating. Pretty appropriate rating, I'd say.

I've noticed a lot of people hating on this week's release. Sure, it's no Castlevania III, but this game really is quite fun(ny).

I played this as a kid and it doesn't deserve 4/5 b/c that would be saying its as good as Earthworm Jim (4/5) and it's not.
If...
1 = garbage
2 = nostalgia
3 = good but uncreative game
4 = good creative game
5 = masterpiece
this gets 3/5 as its company shovel ware in between good o'l jim

I think I rather stick with Earthworm Jim. I don't think I can stomach this game. Weirdest and stupidest idea for a game about boogers. EWW!

I love the soundtrack and the sprite animations, the humor is a wannabe earthworm jim(not even close man), and the gameplay looks bland.

Personally, I thought the SNES was better in terms of graphics, and sound. (The vocal sounds were better to. "BOOGER!")
The animation is indeed funny, amusing, and well done, and somehow makes the game even more fun to play. The game isn't entirelly innovative, or brings anything new to games, but it's silly, (in a good way) and amusing, I say regardless. Of course, I admit I have a rather strange sence of humor, but I don't always like really really vulgar stuff.

Also, to people putting down the game for it's crude humor, and overtones, personally there are much more vulgar & immature games out there then this. (Just look at Duke Nukem.) This game isn't that edgey or repulsive compared to alot stuff on TV nowadays, I say.
I notice, nobody's complaining about Wario's farts in Brawl, and the booger & such references in the Wario Ware series. (Remember the pinball minigame with balls coming out of Wario's nose?)
To quote a Nintendo Power writer, who put this on their favorite games list, "Thank you Boogerman, for teaching us not to take our jobs to seriouslly."

Putting the presentation aside for a sec, what we have here is a very repetitive game with the usual oldschool flaws like floaty control and trial & error level design.

I'd like to know how many people that think they are above the type of content/humor that boogerman has are male. It would surprise me if most of you were (no insult intended at all), it just seems, in my opinion/experience, that most men or boys wouldn't really have such an issue with this.
@ Thomas- why would you prefer to play Conker to this game? I've actually played some of the origional Conker: Bad Fur Day and it has "worse" things IMO (fighting poo monster, wetting on fire imps?,etc...) than even this seems too have. Is it a 2d verses 3d thing or what? Just curious.
I think people are unfairly judging this (at least the people who haven't played it), just because they think they are above this/too good for this. Do you really feel this way, just going with the crowd, or just afraid to admit that you might be interested in a game like this?

To anyone who thinks you're too grown up for this, some people would think that about about adults playing videogames. Does that stop you from playing games?

@Longtimegamer -
I dont think thomas was saying that conker's toilet humour was and better or worse than boogerman's, just that if he were to play a game to enjoy said humour, he would rather go with conker.
I totally agree, boogerman is a relic from the time when every other game was a 2d platformer cast from a mould, where as Conker is a true master-piece (Live&Reloaded is my all time favourite game - I would dread to think how much time I have spent with it.).
My thoughts on Boogerman however is a solid meh. It's not a bad game, but the humour doesnt interest me enough to make me play what is otherwise a very standard platformer.

Dang, I would never guess that a game about boogers would be any good at all. The review doesn't change my mind though, I will never buy it.

I loved Earthworm Jim (still working on it, up to Intestinal Distress), but this game looks terribly average by comparison. I think I'll save my points for Earthworm Jim 2.

This game looks like one of those polarized games. People either love it or hate it. I might pick it up, but I got a lot of other games I want to get before I get this game. It does look kinda fun though.

For me this game represents the most loathsome aspects of the 16 bit console wars.
The irritating, in your face, were so cool and daring, look at what offensive stuff we can do Mega Drive vs the equally repulsive "not on our machine", morally correct and responsible, "we'll be censoring that" SNES.
