One man takes on the Banjo-Kazooie theme in some really brightly colored shorts and I think it works! While fans remember Banjo and his feathered friend fondly, I don't think many gamers know the license as well as they should which is a shame because the industry could use a few more inventive platformers.
Back when the first game was released on Nintendo 64 in 1998, I think a lot of players saw it is an unknown but exclusive to the big N's platform and therefore a must-have. I never actually owned a Banjo-Kazooie game, but I did love the different jumps you could do with Kazooie and the general progression from world to world.
Of course, this was the start of Rare's heavy reliance on collecting random garbage in-game. It's not like that didn't start with Donkey Kong Country, but it certainly solidified in Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie.
