Bucky O’Hare Retro Review

Now that Christmas is over we have Easter to look forward to, and what better way to celebrate that to look at some rabbitty video game heroes!

Created in 1978, Bucky O’Hare was originally a comic book hero before getting his own cartoon series in 1991. Like many animated heroes before him (and after), Bucky made his way into the arcades, and onto the Nintendo Entertainment System.

I first encountered the game in the pages of Zone magazine. This UK based publication was a multi format mag that split into separate Nintendo and Sega versions. The magazine lavished praise on the presentation of the game, but criticized its high difficulty level. 26 years after reading that magazine I thought it would be time to play the game myself.
