In this humorous adventure game (with role-playing overtones), you are The Crimson Tape, the leader of a friendly gang of mutants known as the Superhero League of Hoboken. The Hoboken faction is one of several that belong to a larger Superhero League and your patrol territory is the northeastern United States (specifically New York and New Jersey). The adventure takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland set nearly 200 years in the future and the Superhero Leagues are trying to restore order, preserve historical knowledge, and wipe out the bad guys.
The game features an incredible and hilarious array of more than 30 mutant beasts to fight (such as the Glowing Bean Eaters, Junk Bond Amoebas, King Kong Salmon, etc.) and league members (like Tropical Oil Man, Mademoiselle Pepperoni, etc.) to choose from. The ultimate goal is to defeat the evil Doctor Entropy after completing six levels of adventure, each with five funny, specific missions involving combat, character interaction, exploration and puzzle solving. You'll earn money by buying and selling items in markets and get mission briefings from the League computer, Matilda. In the role-playing aspect, you'll track your characters' health, condition, brawn, brains and toughness. Superhero League of Hoboken is mouse driven and uses the old method of building commands from a list of verbs and objects. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
