Sometimes, you just gotta grin and bear it 😉

The Berenstain Bears: Camping Adventure was released by Sega’s Sega Girls Task Force and Realtime Associates in 1994, and is very obviously targeted towards small children.  You can control either Brother Bear or Sister Bear, and they both play the exact same.  With simple gameplay, easy controls, and more hit points than a Final Fantasy boss, you can almost not die.  In fact, I never once died at ALL, even in practice, during this entire Trial!  That said, they still put the effort in a little with graphics, although the sound and music sound tinny and ear-grating.

The speedrun is as simple as it gets: 4 levels to choose from, go fast from A to B.  That said, the first level has a decent amount of precision with the platforming.  However, the controls are heavy, with a ton of input lag and awful physics.  This is an awful-feeling game to play, and you’ll be yearning for something else, ANYTHING else.  But what can you really expect from a child’s game?

Not much, is the answer here.  This average-at-best platformer isn’t worth your time.  This was such a bore that I didn’t even stream my attempts!  Your time is much better spent elsewhere, and my 3+ hours of wasted time is proof of that.
