SNES game of the same name.
I hate it when companies develop different games for different systems but give them the same name, it's just confusing. It'd be forgiveable if they were based on a movie or whatever like the Batman 1989 games, but they're not, so I don't forgive them.
SNES version, there's a database of info about Wolverine and his foes on the title screen. Wow, Bloodscream huh? That's pretty bad.
It seems Wolverine's daydreaming about when he got his metal coated skeleton. I guess back then he was the only person around who didn't have clearance for that computer. Actually considering what he does to a computer screen at the start of the SNES game for no good reason, maybe they just want to keep the monitor hidden from him.
Apparently they scientists didn't realise Wolverine was a mutant before they started the procedure. I would have thought at least one of them would have done an x-ray and seen the claws before pouring metal into his body.
Wait, what? Did I skip something? Are we back to the present day now?
Never mind, there's no time for speculation. I've got robots and scientists to cut up.
For a scientist this guy seems to be taking a lot of punishment. What's the point of having all these cool well animated attacks if they barely seem to hurt the enemies? At least there doesn't seem to be a counter telling me to 'kill 15 enemies to proceed' in this one.
It's going to be one of those kinds of games isn't it? I guess I need to flick the lever while the platform's still coming down, then jump on it before it goes back up.
Also that picture on the bottom right is starting to worry me. I'm not sure what happens when the little red dot hits the Wolverine head silhouette but I can't imagine it'll be anything good.
Well at least now I know what the switch does. It puts the floor back. No clue how that makes any sense.
I mean seriously, I pretty much only got halfway across. No clue what I'm doing wrong.
Then I fall all the way down and land by the floor restoring lever again. So I need to pull the lever, go up the stairs, jump across the newly restored disappearing floor, through the broken hologram generator, up the lift, dive through the flickering beam...
She explodes and now I'm down to my final life.
SEVERAL LEAPS LATER.
Back to the lever then I guess. And then the stairs, the disappearing floor, the broken hologram generator...
Kick, kick, kick... I really wish these enemies didn't take so long to kill.
Shame they didn't show up to help, that could have been useful.
I'm not sure what the correct strategy is supposed to be here, I just got in close and hammered the attack buttons until he fell apart.
BUT SOON AFTERWARDS...
This one nearly pissed me off as much as the SNES game, but for different reasons. This Wolverine is fast and nimble but takes forever to kill anything. SNES Wolverine is slow and powerful, but it's a pain to get his attacks to connect. This version forced me to repeat sections of game over and over each time I missed a jump, the SNES version had me searching maze-like levels forever for the last few enemies to kill. I just don't want to play either of them again.
In fact no more Wolverine games for a while. I need time to regenerate my naive enthusiasm and misguided curiosity.
