Past

When first released years ago, the Tomatopotamus series received high acclaim, its best installment proving to be Tomatopotamus 2.[1] The series also published a video game that shattered gender archetypes with the introduction of Ms. Tomatopotamus.[2] However, the series would experience several hardships as it developed, with fans calling the game company out for ruining the franchise. Some would criticize the series' 3D games for being unsuitable for such a format, while others would criticize the redesign of the series' titular character. Additionally, nearly all existing copies of Tomatopotamus 2 would be recalled for the Sparcium within them.[1]

Trivia

  • The Tomatopotamus series and its decline is a reference to the Sonic the Hedgehog series, whose 3D games have been criticized for being mediocre and for having transitioned poorly from 2D to 3D gameplay.
