Game of the Bear

One day Ursulo the bear was walking around, minding his own business...when suddenly a weird floating machine appeared and teleported him into the lair of the evil mystical scientist Doctor Wizardo! Now Ursulo must find the three keys and defeat the evil Doctor Wizardo in order to escape from the haunted laboratory.

Game of the BearCart and ManualBox


Your objective is to get the three keys needed to access the room of Doctor Wizardo, defeat him, and get out of the haunted lab.

But it will not be an easy task! Ursulo must carefully navigate through multiple rooms filled with creatures and mechanisms in order to discover chests containing the keys necessary to reach Doctor Wizardo. When you get a key, an icon will apear next to your remaining time on the bottom of the screen. Since Ursulo has no pockets, he can only carry one key at a time. To pick up a new key, Ursulo mus first use the key he is carrying.

At certain points of the haunted lab, there are teleporters that allow you to move between rooms and return quickly to previously visited areas.

If you lose all your lives or the time expires, then the game is over. If you beat the game, the remaining time is your score, so try to be quick!

If you're looking for a really fun platformer, you can't go wrong with this game. Game of the Bear is everything I hoped Mr. Run and Jump would be. Especially fun to play w/ a Genesis controller.

This is a fun game where you may come back to it several times for replay value. For some, it may not be challenging enough, but I really enjoyed the puzzles.

This game has a great metroid like feel, along with some elements of fast traveling back through levels. This game offers a great challenge with great level design that give it a more modern feel. My 16 year old daughter and 13 year old son love this game! We have a great time trying to figure out the levels together. Its a game we go back to often!
