Why is enviro-bear so good?

I read around everywhere seeing people say that Enviro Bear 2010 is like the best game ever and stuff, but I'm not really seeing any reasons. On the screenshots it looks like a poorly made graphics game and honestly idk what makes the game so good. I realize that i'm probably making a fool of myself, but can somebody please explain to me why I should buy the game?

I concur. I do not believe it is that good, but if someone has a promocode and wants to convert me, I won't mind.

You're going to receive a bunch of joke answers (mainly from funkynubman) but in essence, the appeal of Enviro-Bear is its silliness, and the fact that the environment is fun to interact with.

The appeal is how unusually entertaining and interactive it is for such a crappy looking game (although personally I find the graphics rather artistic, apparently it was quite difficult intentionally drawing badly). It's not an easy game though... which is appropriate, because y'know... it's a bear driving a car.

I think it has a a very enthusiastic fan base. It seems like one of those games like a car wreck. You know you shouldn't look at, but you can't not look. I've even had thoughts of buying it just to see what the hype was all about, but I can never bring myself to do it.

Well over a million people on the boards like it. Just ask Hodapp.

Very true. Polls have been held and the response has been massive.

Its so funny, one of my favorites of the app store. It has made me laugh more than anything. There are some surprises if you play for a while too.

Fruho: Those were actually not joke answers, but I guess they might seem so to some. Anyway, Enviro-Bear 2010 is great because (seriously now

1. Fun interactive environments.

2. You're a bear in an orange car. What else do you want?

3. It's only a dollar.

4. The possibility of a MUSHROOM or the legendary GOLDEN FISH!

5. A really catchy soundtrack that fits so well.

6. Pure comedy, and some easy, nerdy jokes on Toucharcade.

The reason you see those is because apparently some people think they'll appear funny by using super old and completely obsolete jokes. When Enviro-bear was released, people were completely shocked at how poor the game was and how "crazily creative" it was in the sense that nothing made sense in the game. It was "so bad that it was good" basically. Now after many months the joke is over. No Enviro-bear is not the best game ever made for the iDevice, and no it's not worth your time, period.

You call those "serious" answers?
1. Grabbing fish and other objects is "interactive"? Almost every other $0.99 game in the appstore offers more "interactivity" on your fingers.
2. Yeah, really serious comment
3. It's only a dollar, guess what? So are thousands of other games of better quality
4. Yup, more seriousness
5. Catchy soundtrack? You must not have listened to real music before
6. What does toucharcade jokes have to do with the game itself? O_o
