The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends is a video game released for the NES in December 1992, among other platforms.

Why it Sucks

  1. Terrible ear-splitting music which mostly consists of short music loops. And that's when it actually sounds like it's supposed to; the game's bad programming can sometimes mess up the music and make it sound even worse.
  2. Limited bombs and Bullwinkle's charge attack drains his energy.
  3. In one stage, there is a staircase that takes you further in the level, but it looks like it leads to nowhere.
  4. Ironically and humorously, Rocky can't walk up steps.
  5. Rats are too fast to hit with bombs.
  6. The codes that are built in the game itself (not Game Genie) glitch up the game.
  7. Terrible graphics.
  8. The entire plot is just a line of text: "Get our heroes to Abominable Mansion, and collect Bullwinkle's inheritance!".
  9. No ending other than a poorly drawn "You Win!" screen.
  10. The game is incredibly short and can be completed in less than five minutes.
  11. The game doesn't save your high-scores or have a password function.
  12. Inconsistent title: the game is called "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends" on the cover art, but the title screen calls it "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle".
  13. Hideous attempts at advertising the game, with the game's box saying: "Maximum Fun for Ages 4-10!".
  14. In one of the levels, if a gas-like hazard touches the player, the game won't just reverse the controls, but also distort the music, making it even worse.
