What if: A Raccoons video game
- It's too bad there never was a Raccoons video game, given the fact
that the Raccoons franchise never had the mass merchandising of
other 80s properties (Transformers, GI Joe, Care Bears,etc.).
During the time of the specials and the series, it would have neat
to see a Raccoons video game released either on a console (like the
Atari 2600, 5200 or 7800; Intellivison; Colecovision; NES; Sega
Genesis, etc.) or on a home computer (like the Apple II, Commodore
64, Atari 800, TI-99A, etc.).
Here's the point of this post. What do you think a Raccoons video
game would be like? Could you base it on a special like the Xmas
Raccoons or the Lost Star? What would it be, a sidescrolling
platformer, an RPG, a graphic adventure, a shoot-em-up? Would you
take control of Bert, Ralph, or Melissa going through levels facing
the minions of Cyril Sneer?
THat is a cool idea, i always though of a graphic adventure, or RPG,
something based on the lost star special.
I did some character sprites at one point for the raccoons myself in
hopes of makin a rpg, but the software didnt allow sprites that big..

Yeah, an RPG would be nice or even a graphic adventure.
For the uninitiated, a graphic adventure is a game where you play a
character who can interact with its environment (talking to others,
looking at things, picking up and using items) and must solve
puzzles involving items they pick up along the way. Examples of
graphic adventure games would be the King's Quest series, Leisure
Suit Larry, the Adventures of Willy Beamish, and Sam & Max: Hit the
Road. Sadly, the genre is all but dead today as there is little
replay value (why play again when you know how to solve all the
puzzles?) and most of the elements have been incorporated into other
game genres like action or RPGs.
Hmm, I'm trying to picture Raccoons DOOM with your choice of Bert,
Ralph, or Melissa and them walking around levels taking on Cyril
Sneer, his pigs, and his bears with weapons like slingshots, water
guns, bowling balls, BFG 9000s, etc.
