Forty-nine years after his first appearance in Action Comics issue number one, Superman made his debut in the video Arcades. Simply titled Superman, this game lets you fight for truth, justice and the American way. Superman begins with Clark Kent running through an alleyway and changing from a mild-mannered reporter into one of the most famous fictional characters ever created. From there you take over and guide Superman through five levels of play. You'll battle numerous super-powered aliens while walking and flying your way through Metropolis, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Washington D.C. and a spaceship; your goal, of course, is to save the world.
As Superman you are endowed with the ability to punch, kick and emit heat vision. By holding the punch button for a couple of seconds, you can throw a blast punch. You can also pick up crystals that give you energy and additional weapons, such as a "Super Blast Punch" and a "Mass Terminator." Cars, gasoline cans and other items can be picked up and used as projectiles. The game alternates between street fighting scenarios and flight sequences. You can play this game by yourself or with a friend. In the two-player mode, one player controls a blue Superman character while the other controls a red. You'll probably recognize the music from this game as it is the theme from the Superman films. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
