Move Over 2D Arcade Games, Bubsy's Back in 3D! Accolade Ships Bubsy 3D For The Sony PlayStation Game Console.

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 25, 1996--Jump, fly, climb, run, warp, swim and glide as Bubsy Bobcat, Accolade's wise-cracking star of the Bubsy series, returns in his latest adventure, Bubsy 3D. Bubsy 3D, which starts shipping this week, is the first and only true 3D action platform game on the PlayStation.

"Bubsy 3D has more levels, environments, puzzles, animations, characters, moves, and gameplay experiences than any other game of its kind," said Jim Barnett, CEO of Accolade. "With over 80 hours of gameplay, it's certain to be a favorite for the holiday season."

Bubsy 3D takes place on the planet Rayon to which Bubsy has been abducted. In order to finish the game, Bubsy must travel through six worlds and 16 huge levels filled with 24 challenging enemies, while collecting his lost rocket parts! Bubsy runs, jumps, swims, flies and soars through a variety of land, air and sea levels, all in true 3D. There are 64 hidden areas, six bonus levels and four bosses for players to encounter along the way.

Bubsy 3D offers a cartoon-rich, "go anywhere" 3D environment with unlimited camera angles. All of Bubsy 3D's enemies are also rendered in true 3D.

Not available in any other PlayStation platform game, Bubsy 3D offers a one-of-a-kind, first-ever two-player experience. By using a "deathmatch" style of play, players can compete against one another in five special levels.

Bubsy 3D will be available this week for the Sony PlayStation game console at an estimated street price of $59.95.
