Not Yeti Arcade Friday: Bio Force Ape

I've blogged about a few of the Not Yetis of video games before, notably The Shambler from Quake, Yooks from The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Bullymong from Borderlands 2, and Gwani from Ultima VII: Serpent Isle... but perhaps the Greatest Not Yeti of Video Games Of All Time is...

Bio Force Ape

Legendary for its zany weirdness, Bio Force Ape (1991) for the NES was never actually released.

Then all copies of it were thought to be lost.

Like the yeti, there was even a hoax about it.

Then one day it was discovered!

Read more about the game here and here.
