Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure (Genesis)

Developer/Publisher: Interplay Entertainment

Release Date: November 18, 1994

System: Sega Genesis

Genre: Platformer 

Players: 1


The power source of the Zap-O-Matic, a machine designed to warp pollution to a parallel universe, has been stolen and it’s up to Boogerman to take it back. In Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure, players control the game’s namesake as he explores Dimension X-Crement in search of the stolen power source. Each level features a disgusting theme like the Mucous Mountains and the Flatulent Swamps. The monsters that inhabit these areas are also themed after various bodily functions or puns such as Nose Goblins. Aside from its gross out ’90s motif, Boogerman is a platformer that requires players to navigate obstacles, battle monsters, and fight bosses.

Our hero’s main line of defense is his ability to jump on enemies, but he can also flick boogers at creatures with enough force to kill them. Furthermore, he is capable of emitting a powerful fart that can be charged up to hit monsters on the other side of the screen and is able to attack baddies with a mighty belch.

Over the course of the game players will find plungers that can be collected to play a minigame that can earn players extra lives at the end of the stage. There are also items like peppers that power up the hero’s attacks. Boogerman’s health is limited and he can only take a couple of hits (as indicated by the color of his cape) before losing a life. His snot and belch abilities are also limited, so players will have to replenish them with items found in the game’s twenty stages.
