Bubsy 3D is a polygonal platformer, and one of the earlier games released domestically for the Sony PlayStation. It is a continuation of the Bubsy series, which debuted on the 16-bit platformers back in the early 1990s. The game's graphics are predominated by flat-shaded polygons. The gameplay is broken up into a series of stages. The typical goal is to find pieces of a broken spaceship. The game supports both password saves and the PlayStation Memory Card, but it does not feature analog support.
