This cave bear would calm down if Time Commando put on some clothes. Nature fact: bears are very modest about nudity and will shield their eyes to avoid seeing it. If you ever need to get away from a bear, take off your clothes and then run away.
This cute little white fellow is a pioneer among video game bears because he was one of the first ones.
The reason the player has zero points here is because he hasn’t befriended the bear yet, after he does all the zeroes are replaced by 9s and a happy song plays (and then the game crashes).
Warning: do NOT buy this game. Despite the artwork on the cover there isn’t actually a bear in it. I played it for weeks. I don’t know if my copy is broken but just in case, DO NOT SUPPORT THIS GAME.
Smokey Bear for the Atari 2600 is notable because it never actually came out. Actually none of these games did.
Many historians believe that had the game been completed, Smokey Bear could have prevented the video game market crash of 1983 in much the same way that he prevents forest fires.
The storyline where Uncle Ben came back to life and wore a bear suit was really weird. I can’t believe they made a game out of it.
I can’t understand your bear language. Do you need help? Are you in trouble? Rest your head on my Cry Shield, my Ursidae friend.
It is a little known fact that in the frontier days, bears welcomed their human neighbors with open arms and invited them to their bear feasts. Thanks to video games we can relive this golden era of human-bear relations.
Thanks to the superior storytelling medium that is video games, Stan and Jan Berenstain were finally able to realize a vision for the Berenstein Bears that was impossible to portray with mere books. (thanks to former Microsoft vice president of game publishing Ed Fries for tipping us off to this game)
Not all bears are our friends. This boss battle from the DOS classic Cyril Cyberpunk is a grim reminder.
