Bad Mojo is getting/has a re-release? That's crazy. I remember playing it back in the day, yeah the environments were grimy and dirty but that was a huge part of it, partly for added detail because you were so close to the ground, and also just to illustrate how horrible a neighbourhood this was.
Maybe it doesn't hold up anymore, but I really enjoyed this game back in the day. Good levels, good puzzles, good memories, and as far as I'm concerned, good game.
