Description of Pac-in-Time
Fury of the Furries is a great cartoon platformer/puzzle game from Kalisto that was released only in Europe (as an interesting side note, Kalisto released a very similar game based on the same engine called Pac-in-Time in the US shortly after, although it features the famous Pac-Man instead of Tiny, and the levels are different and not as much fun IMO as this European title).
The description and at MobyGames gives a good overview: "In Fury of the Furries, you control a cute, round creature called Tiny, who must defeat "the wicked one" who has captured the King, and turned all the Tinies into mindless monsters. Fortunately your Tiny has special powers. It can transform himself into a swimmer, rock eater, fireball spitter, or rope swinger during its quest. The game takes place on a huge island separated into eight regions: Desert, Lagoon, Forest, Pyramids, Mountains, Factory, Village, and finally the Castle."
The game has a lot of neat concepts that add a lot more depth than a typical platform game. You can switch between different Tinies, each with different abilities, and there are some physical puzzles to solve (mostly of the “how do I get from point A to B?” variety). The downside is that you can save only after every 5 levels, which is something that might frustrate action beginners. I don’t find the game particularly difficult, though, as there is a good balance between fighting monsters and solving puzzles with various Tinies.
If you enjoy Lemmings but want more action, or if you enjoy Sonic the Hedgehog but want more depth, Fury of the Furries fits the bill as one of the most innovative action/puzzle hybrids ever made. Highly recommended!

I can't get the joystick to move the characters, the buttons work. The keyboard moves them, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong. The joystick calibration only has you center and not go up-left/down-right...

I could have had memories of this game but my pirated Mac copy always crashed first thing going from the title screen to the (what must be the level selection) map.
Now that's injustice.

"Winners don't use copies", fine, I'm gonna run my GTA VC.
