When I was a kid, I was a little shit so my parents gave me video games to play to keep me entertained, or old VHS tapes of British tv shows.
But out of the games that I played, there was one that was notorious throughout out my household that everyone could beat, except my mum ( who was probably the second best video gamer I knew at the time).
That game was Fatty Bear’s Birthday Surprise for the PC,
the game came out in 1993 and was developed by Humongous Entertainment.
The company worked on a lot of other kids games, as well as some blues clues games. So the game starts off with Kayla a little African-American girl, who is told to go to sleep because it’s her birthday tomorrow.
She proceeds to sleep when Fatty Bear magically comes to life and decides that he needs to prepare for Kayla’s birthday, by making a cake and putting up letters to say happy birthday, also pretty much everything the mom and dad should have done, not this random Teddy bear.
You then wonder around the house and collect things for the birthday, as the game plays like an old click and point adventure.
Throughout the house there’s plenty of interactive things to click on, most of witch are not safe or even particle.
So naturally I just stuffed around whilst surprisingly not waking anyone up in the House, when I proceeded to play around with everything in the home.
All right I finished stuffing around with everything and then went into the kitchen, there this rabbit thing comes in with Rayman with like helicopter ears, sit’s on the counter and tells me how to bake a cake.
So now I opened the present that the mom and dad left in the kitchen in a box, which turns out to be a puppy who you let lose after opening it.
I just realised that throughout this game Fatty Bear just walks in to any room and just doesn’t give a damn about anything, I mean theres a bowling game out in the back yard which I played numerous times and NO ONE STILL WOKE UP!! (also the bowling pins explode when you hit them…)
okay so I got the dog and put it it back in the box, tide a ribbon around it so it cant get out and to quote Fatty Bear “I think it’s better if the dog stays in this box”
I don’t see PETA liking this one…….
Theres also a recipe for a chocolaty chip cake, which you can actually use in real life, witch is nice.
But Because Fatty Bear is just that good, he dose it in like 2 minutes and you get to decorate it and here’s what I made.
Alright now that I finished everything and did everybody’s jobs, it’s morning and we have to go back to being a regular teddy bear.
Then everybody is happy but Fatty Bear is just there being stared at by the Puppy, as he is the only one knowing what it’s done!!
All in all I really enjoyed this game as a kid and even a bit now, even though I’m a lot older but is was still fun because of the nostalgia.
So I’m giving this a 68/100
Now for some more weird stuff I got up to in this game.
