Today on the North American Virtual Console, you can download the 1995 Mega Drive game Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure for 800 Points.
The game is described as a puzzle-platformer, and as you can guess from the title, is themed on snot. It is rife with bad taste, with Boogerman's special abilities being flicking snot at enemies and burping on them. Delicious.
The cover features Boogerman standing in a pile of snot in a sewer, surrounded by copyright-infringing Gremlins, and is rated MA-13 despite having very childish themes. The game is meant to be very good, however the gross-out nature of the game means I would never play it! The humour seems similar to that of Yvon of the Yukon, another disgusting cartoon character.
