Games To Try Before You Die: Beavis And Butt-Head (SNES,Genesis)
Growing up in the 90’s was pretty awesome. We had some great video games and some pretty damn good television. TV today is plagued with a ton of reality shows. Some good, most bad. MTV back in the 90’s though, defined a generation of music and produced programming that was not meant for the young audience. This is where we got 2 bungholes that defined a generation, known as Beavis and Butt-Head. Even though they are entirely stupid, they made 2 pretty good games.
What: Beavis and Butt-Head are two completely different games on both systems. With Super Nintendo, you got a platforming game. With Genesis, you got a puzzle/adventure game. Both were a lot of fun!
Beavis and Butt-Head are stoked for the upcoming GWAR show coming to Highland. Sadly though, Anderson’s dog got a hold of their tickets and shredded them in to pieces! You must find your ticket pieces and glue them back together so you can see GWAR live!
Why: When it comes to both games, they are completely different from each other. Even though they both have the same story line.
In the SNES version, the platforming is good. Although at sometimes, it can get pretty frustrating. One issue with this game is the life bar. If you play 2 players, you share the same life bar. I guess this game is about Beavis and Butt-Head, and not just Beavis or Butt-Head. Makes sense…I suppose, but when one player dies, you both die! The music is awesome, why? It’s featured by GWAR! That is awesome! Even though it is 16-Bit sound, still sounds cool. Overall the SNES version is good, especially if you want a decent platformer.
Genesis on the other hand did something completely different, and it was good. The puzzle solving aspect of the game is challenging and fun, and the end result of some of the completed puzzles is great. Such as a guy eating a dead rat and blowing chunks, photographing a over-sized woman “gettin’ down” at the drive in theater, etc. Games with this content defined the Genesis and make it more of the “Big Kids” machine. One issue, this game is unplayable with 2 players. Primary reason? The sewer level….you will fall into the toxic green liquid more times that you can imagine if playing 2 player. One player? Good to go! 2 Players? Take turns, you will be happier.
These games are pretty hard to compare, so watch the vid’s below and see the difference. Forever immortalized in video gaming, Beavis and Butt-Head (They never scored…)
