The late 90s were a bizarre time for video games, particularly game mascots. Dominated by anthropomorphic platforming heroes in hopes of joining the mainstays like Mario and Sonic, these obnoxiously colourful characters either never made it to the top or lacked the charm to last long. While there's still a market for characters like Spyro, Donkey Kong, Rayman and Klonoa, names like Gex, Crock, Ty and Scaler have laid to rest long ago.
While many of these games had relatively solid gameplay, they were usually skins of other platformers during that era and lacked identity because of it. If a developer thinks they can simply tack on a new mascot to a familiar world and expect sales to blow the roof they're grossly mistaken. There's a reason why these platforming clones (for lack of a better word) never made it to the limelight when there are far more creative ideas in store.
