    Default The Crash Dummies video games

    There were at least four maybe more

    GB
    NES
    GEN
    SNES

    I only played the SNES one more than a decade ago. I used to have a Crash Dummy fetish haha. I loved the cheesy toy lineup, I had the little foot tall dummy "doll" where you could rip his head legs and arms off and I liked the whole idea of the Crash Dummies.

    But boy did the SNES version suck. Anyone thought otherwise? Maybe I'll revisit it if opinions vary, after all it's only $5 at the most...

    How are the other CD games? From screen shots, the NES one looks like it might be the best -- is it any good?

    Thanks.

    I've got a GameGear one.

    Set up as missions of sort, that as you go thru the days of the week they get longer and harder to complete. One mission was jumping off a building, one was skiing, another driving a car. There was a rocketship one too. I liked it when I was little, though I never did beat the whole thing.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    I'm a sega fan and have both the game gear and genesis version and I gotta admit, these games do suck. Generic platforming. But gotta love how licensing back then is still being used the same way now. Horray for licensed crappy games

    I have the NES and SNES ones. They are both pretty poor attempts at videogaming.

    There's also a Master System version (in Europe & Brazil, anyway) which plays like the GG incarnation.

    I really liked the games :O The game boy(where you go day by day in minigames) was a lot of fun, and I remember sinking time into the NES and SNES platformers. They were generic, but still fun.
