I first heard about this game several years ago. Seeing that it was made by Capcom as well as having good reviews, I promised myself to lớn get it someday. A few years ago, I came across this trò chơi at an independent trò chơi store. At the cheap price of $8, I did not hesitate a moment further.

Among the first Marvel games made by Capcom, Mutant Apocalypse is a rather uncommon

blend of platforming và beat em’ up action. The trò chơi was released in late 1994 in North America & was also released in nhật bản on the Super Famicom. Mutant Apocalypse’s blend of platforming và beat em’ up kích hoạt sounded very good, but a few flaws ultimately undermine the experience.

The story of Mutant Apocalypse is simple enough. There’s a rise of anti-mutant activity in the small island of Genosha. While using Cerebro to lớn investigate, Professor Charles Xavier finds out that Apocalypse is residing on the island & that the island government is using him as a scapegoat khổng lồ tighten the control of the mutants in the island. However, Apocalypse has his own plans và if they’re not stopped, the conflict between humans and mutants will exacerbate. Thus, he sends out a team of X-Men lớn foil Apocalypse’s plans. The team in this game consists of Cyclops, Wolverine, Psylocke, Gambit, và Beast.

The graphics for this trò chơi are what you would expect from Capcom, nice & detailed. A lot of the levels feel very similar to lớn the ones from the first 3 Mega Man X games in terms of graphical design, which was nice. The environments feel varied, even when a lot of the stages in the game take place in various bases. The character sprites themselves are also finely detailed; Cyclops and Beast have clearly designed muscular builds while Wolverine và Psylocke look very agile. A lot of bosses in this trò chơi are HUGE & look lượt thích they were taken straight out of a comic book. You can tell that Capcom put out a lot of effort into the graphics. Although the trò chơi obviously looks nowhere near as good as Children of the Atom (which came out within the same time period), it’s still one of the better looking Super NES games. I have no complaints in this department.

Capcom also did a great job with the music as usual, making it so that there’s a good variety

of music. Cyclops’s stage theme sounds like it was taken directly from the Mega Man X games & does a good job of making the player want lớn beat the tar out of everyone while Beast’s stage theme has a more jazzy and slow-paced feel khổng lồ it. I also like Wolverine’s theme since it evokes a sense of urgency … if only there was a sound test option. Quite a few of the sound effects are the usual stuff that you hear in any beat em’ up game, but still, they make it feel like you’re really beating the tar out of somebody and that’s good enough. I found it a bit weird though that there doesn’t seem to lớn be many voiceovers in the game. In fact, the playable characters don’t even say the name of their special moves when you perform them.

At the start of the game you can pick what stage you want khổng lồ go to, which is similar khổng lồ Mega Man’s stage select. However, you can only play as the character that the trò chơi gives you for a particular stage. For example, you can’t play as Wolverine in Cyclops’s stage. After you clear the first five stages however, you can pick any character you want for the remaining stages, but the order of the levels is fixed at that point. Each of the playable characters has a few chất lượng special moves which can either be done simply by pressing a direction & a button or a Street Fighter-esque combination (stuff lượt thích quarter-circle forward, half-circle

forward, etc.) Now, there are some flaws in this department, which really undermine the whole game. For starters, the trò chơi ISN’T too hard lớn the point where it’s frustrating, but it can be cheap at some points, particularly when you get cornered on both sides and enemies from both sides start beating the tar out of you. At that point, there’s nothing you can really do. Furthermore, at the start of the game, each character only has 2 lives. You thua thảm both of them in any of the first 5 stages and it’s game over. Fortunately, a password system exists in the game that allows you lớn go straight to màn chơi 6 or farther. However, it really would have been nice if the password system would be extended lớn the preliminary stages of the game.

Flaws aside, this trò chơi is worthwhile for anyone who craves beat em’ up kích hoạt with some difficulty on the side. For everyone else though, it’s best to try it out a little bit before buying. Fortunately, the game can be had for less than $10, so even if you didn’t lượt thích it, at least you didn’t waste a lot of money.
