The gaming big Atari has not too long ago made an enormous announcement, stating that it has acquired the rights to greater than 100 video games (for PC and console) from the 80s and 90s. The corporate has plans to revive these basic titles, together with remasters, re-releases, and even new entries in previous sequence. In line with Atari, the acquisition will enable it to “broaden digital and bodily distribution of the basic titles, create new video games primarily based on the IP, and discover model and merchandising collaborations.” Though the complete listing of titles has not been revealed, it contains video games from Accolade, Infogrames, and Microprose; among the names that Atari talked about particularly are Bubsy, Hardball, and Demolition Racer, in addition to the flight simulators 1942: Pacific Air Struggle, F-117A, and F-14.
After all, one sport that stands out from the listing is Bubsy; within the 90s, Bubsy was a mediocre platformer who did not compete with Mario and Sonic, nevertheless, the orange cat and his video games have surprisingly remained related.

In 1996, Bubsy’s reputation took an enormous hit with the discharge of Bubsy 3D, which acquired very unfavorable responses from critics and gamers. Nevertheless, greater than 20 years later, Bubsy made a comeback with two trendy sequels, The Woolies Strike Again in 2017, and Paws on Fireplace! in 2019, each of which acquired poor opinions.
