New review series I have begun

Post by MrEightThreeOne on Fri May 16, 2014 12:15 am

(Copy-pasted from my post about this on MobyGames)

You might or might not remember my Backyard Sports series of reviews and my quickie LEGO Island review series. I feel the former series really didn't get a whole lot of attention, so I thought I'd try something more ambitious. I'm going to review every Humongous game featuring the "big five" -- Putt-Putt, Fatty Bear, Freddi Fish, Pajama Sam, and Spy Fox. Not just the adventures though, I'm also taking on the spinoffs they were a part of too (with the exception of Pajama Sam's Games to Play on Any Day, since I've never played it and probably won't since it's so rare). You can see the first review in the series, Putt-Putt Joins the Parade, here: http://www.mobygames.com/game/win3x/putt-putt-joins-the-parade/reviews/reviewerId,246035/

The games will be reviewed in the following order:

Putt-Putt Joins the Parade

Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise

Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon

Putt-Putt and Fatty Bear's Activity Pack

Freddi Fish 1

Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo

Freddi Fish 2

Putt-Putt and Pep's Balloon-o-Rama

Putt-Putt and Pep's Dog on a Stick

Freddi Fish and Luther's Maze Madness

Freddi Fish and Luther's Water Worries

Pajama Sam 1

Spy Fox 1

Putt-Putt Travels Through Time

Pajama Sam's SockWorks

Spy Fox in Cheese Chase

Freddi Fish 3

Pajama Sam 2

Putt-Putt Enters the Race

Freddi Fish 4

Spy Fox 2

Pajama Sam's Lost & Found

Spy Fox in Hold the Mustard

Pajama Sam 3

Putt-Putt Joins the Circus

Spy Fox: Operation Ozone

Freddi Fish 5

Pajama Sam 4

Putt-Putt: Pep's Birthday Surprise

As you can see, this will take quite a long time to do. If I can do the Backyard Sports reviews though, anything is possible.

As of this posting, three reviews are already done, with Putt-Putt & Fatty Bear's Activity Pack currently being approved. I will post updates on this one as well if you want to follow me here instead of on MobyGames and want to provide more discussion.

Enjoyed reading these, thanks a lot. Keep up the good work. I actually never knew that Putt-Putt Parade was released before Fatty Bear, or that Ron Gilbert was involved with the beginnings of Humongous.

These have been great so far. The HE games (and LEGO Island, for that matter) don't really have established consensuses, so it's nice to see someone chronicling some well-reasoned evaluations of them. Keep it up!

I read a few of your review articles, and I must say, well done! Keep up the great work!

Also, in your review of "Putt-Putt and Fatty Bear's Activity Pack," I must say, I like the "Circus Stormin'" minigame because I like the way it's a similar vein to the "Bear Stormin'" minigame in Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon, although "Putt-Putt's Fan Pack" (which is the first game to feature the "Circus Stormin'" minigame) came out in the same year as the second Putt-Putt Junior Adventure. I bet "Circus Stormin'" is the codename for "Bear Stormin'," and it's also a beta version.

Because the Junior Arcades are relatively easy to review, you're getting two today!
