This flippant side-scrolling platformer states its “anti-remake” philosophy in
no uncertain terms: starring as _X-Men_ ‘s Wolverine, you get to hop, skip and
jump across the pastoral landscape while savagely butchering such mainstays of
video game lore as Mario, Sonic and Alex Kidd, who have somehow been cloned
into a rampaging army bent on gory violence. They’ll attempt to thwart you
with their hand-to-hand combat skills; you can return the favor using your
kicks and punches, or find more efficient means to deal with them – such as
miniguns, bazookas and flame-throwers.
You lose a life when your energy meter goes down to zero, either in combat or
as a result of environmental hazards. All characters are procedurally animated
in bouncy “ragdoll” fashion, which enables certain flexible acrobatic feats,
as well as very messy dismemberment. The entire game takes up 32 KB of
executable code; the full source is included (Turbo Pascal 7 with inline
assembly), as well as the tools used to create it, including the level editor.
