"Take control of the slightly slimy hero as he tries to thwart the nefarious Booger Meister and his plans for world domination."
When you pick up a game called Boogerman, you know right away you're in for a weird, on-the-fringe-of-taste game. Interplay has constructed a game that will appeal to fans of the Ren & Stimpy- and Beavis and Butt-Head-type of humor, because Boogerman uses bodily functions as weapons.
'Snot Very Polite
For every superhero, there's a mad scientist who needs defeating. Boogerman's adversary is Professor Stinkbaum, who's found a way to take the world's waste and send it to another dimension called Dimension X-crement. When things get out of control and criminal behavior starts creeping into the process, Boogerman comes to the rescue. And he finds himself up against many weird creatures like goblins, trolls, and ghosts in five worlds spanning 41 spacious levels.
Luckily, Boogerman is equipped with...well, he doesn't really have any special weapons, other than what he was born with. He can flick boogers at enemies, with some milk he can hawk loogies, and he can belch with damaging effects. His most powerful tool is...well, his butt blasts! He can let off a little stinker to take out an enemy, or deliver something bigger for maximum destruction. With a chili pepper, he's a flame thrower -- and he can even fly.
The Sound of Mucus
As you might expect, Boogerman is filled with juicy noises and visuals for each on-screen action. The only sound problem comes with the many digitized voice samples, which are somewhat raspy. The graphics and 'animations, on the other hand, are really slick and comical to match the game's premise.
Control, at first, seems to be pretty excruciating, as many of Boogerman's excretions and expulsions are control-pad and button exercises.
It doesn't take long to execute his excessive arsenal and extradite his enemies' exteriors into extinction. It's an extravaganza!
Butt... There's More!
As disgusting as Boogerman' can be, as a video game it's fun to play. It almost comes off as a parody of last year's Disney's Aladdin, with extensive, challenging levels that take you up and down, left and right, and in and out of distant areas (using noses and toilets as transporters). Boogerman is a gas to play, it doesn't stink, and it looks P.U.- tiful. You'll have a blast!
- In Level 1, when you drop off the cliff to this spot, blast the rock with s Super Burp. Don't forget to grab the cape inside.
- Grabbing enough plungers to build a ladder gives good bonus points -- and makes Boogerman happy, too.
- In the nasal caverns you can't harm these bobbing creatures. Just time your moves past them.
- In the early stages you have to work your way through the trees' upper branches to get full bonuses.

Boogerman is a 2D platformer video game created and published in 1994 for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and in 1995 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) by Interplay Entertainment. The game was also released later on Nintendo's Virtual Console Wii in North America (November 2008) and in Europe (December 2008). The main character of the game was featured in Earthworm Jim's story as well.
The story begins in a dark and stormy evening, when Professor Stinkbaum was working in his laboratory, where he was building a machine that would save the world from pollution. The main idea behind the machine was that the pollution would have been transported to another place, called Dimension X Crement. Snotty Ragsdale, a millionaire, visit the laboratory in the same night to find out the secrets about the machine, but he ends up breaking it. A portal opens and giant arms pop out of the portal and steal the machine's power source. Then Ragsdale changes into his alter ego, Boogerman, and jumps into the portal to find out more about the theft.
The gameplay of the game is very simple, because the game is a side-scrolling platformer, like many other games released in the same period. The side-scrolling platformer features burp/fart ammunition for Boogerman, but also booger ammunition. The player has to pass through 20 different levels. Afterwards there is going to be an extra level, which is the last boss Boogerman has to fight against. All the levels consist of slight puzzles which need to be finished. To do this, Boogerman has to defeat his foes, which are different on each level. They all have their own set of skills, ammunition and weaknesses.
The game for Nintendo's Wii was not spectacular, actually the graphics of it were not very good and the overall game was considered disappointing. The same story mentioned above is featured in the Nintendo version, so the players will not get anything new if they buy the 2008 installment. The game costs 800 Wii points, which I think it’s way too much for what it gives in return.
The theme from the game was never interesting enough to stand out of the crowd of hundreds other games released in the same period. The gameplay was standard and the graphics were not fantastic.
Boogerman was rated with 6.8 out of 10 by three different critics on GameSpot, while no less than 222 users voted the game with a total average of 8.0, which I think it is a bit too much for this kind of game.
