Bad Mojo is one game that is easily remembered, since it is indeed one of the few titles around where the player commands a cockroach : roaming around in kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, avoid being squashed and, at the same time, trying to save someone from suicide.
Sounds weird enough?
The story, unfortunately, goes that the first time I actually managed to play it, I ended up being pretty underwhelmed. The intro sequence was pretty interesting and the graphics were also very well done, but I ended up getting stuck in a manner of minutes and I had to resort to consult a walkthrough to understand what I was actually expected to do.
This is because the child can do things no normal human infant could do without hurting himself, like falling from great heights, jumping hurdles and throwing heavy things around. You move objects around, balance yourself on leg tables in order to climb around and not much else.
I have no quarrel with the adventure part, but the action? Personally, I find it ideal when games find a middle point: a realistic gameplay experience that also managed to be entertaining.
The iperrealistic simulation is fun only for a niche kind of market, not the one really interested in weaving a narrative like the game from Pulse Interactive. Maybe they should have just deed the game to be approached differently, but I can see the dilemma the developing team was facing.

Most of the time spent in game will be actually figuring out where to go and not die, rather than what to do.
Since the game is played in a topdown view, most of the time it is necessary to explore every nook and cranny to look for an exit.

Even though there are no famous or recognizable actors, the cast is pretty decent and really one of the best features of the game. Digitized locations are expertly used, full of tiny details which will act as clues as to what to do next and as callbacks to events of the future and the past. Also, as a small but essential technical detail, the development team managed to keep the whole game, although pretty short, on a single CD, so there is no disc swapping required.
Also that working inside certain technical limitations of the time could still produce excellent .
Now comes the part of the article where I should try to find a kind of alternative, only this time it does not really come that easy. The player alternated between a tarantula and a scorpion, had a pretty interesting atmosphere and also a plot which the creatures were part of, but never protagonist.
