USA VC Update: Boogerman
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
It's just one game again this week, and unfortunately it's neither of the big-name titles (Castlevania III and Phantasy Star IV) which Europe recently got. What you get instead is Interplay's next title.
Boogerman is a rather average game in terms of gameplay - Just run and jump your way through the stages. What really sets it apart from other platformers however is the theme - Your character, Boogerman, is pretty much the filthiest hero ever, as his arsenal includes farts and belches! Of course your enemies aren't exactly the cleanest bunch either - To beat them you'll have to traverse areas such as the Flatulent Swamps and the Pus Palace, go through sewers by actually going down toilets, and more. This unique theme actually makes the game quite enjoyable, although it's not in the same league as Earthworm Jim.
