Bug! (Sega Saturn review)

Developer: Realtime Associates
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1995

Bug! is a 3D platformer that was followed by a sequel titled Bug Too! (1996, Sega Saturn).

+ Levels are huge and there's plenty of alternate paths / secrets to locate on your way to the goal.

+ Enemies are varied and slowly introduced throughout each world to keep things feeling fresh.

- Your jump attack is very inconsistent and it's often hit-or-miss as to whether you take damage or defeat an opponent.

- The difficulty curve is dreadful, as the game starts off very challenging and doesn't ease you into the action.

- The camera tends to snap around wildly and the need to be near the edge of the screen for it to scroll obscures your vision.

- Too many blind leaps of faith that zap away your limited number of lives in unfair fashion.

- Despite being a lengthy game, there are very few checkpoints and no option to save your progress.
