Super Dropzone is an improved version of a very popular arcade game, which in the eighties was released, among others, on Commodore and Atari computers. The original version of Dropzone was largely modelled on the cult Defender. The player played the role of a scientist equipped with a jet backpack. His task was to save civilians kidnapped from the planet’s surface. The aliens on the map had to be eliminated, but killed in such a way as not to hurt innocent people. Moreover, the civilians had to be returned to the surface. This version of the game does not introduce any revolutionary changes in this respect. The only major improvements included the quality of the graphics, which should be quite obvious. Pocket Studios is responsible for the preparation of this conversion. At Gameboy Advance we also developed such games as LEGO Racers 2 or Star Wars: Flight of the Falcon. Super Dropzone in this form appeared only on Nintendo’s portable console.
This product is not a completely new work, but only a conversion of Archer MacLean’s Dropzone, released in 1995 to SNES. This means, above all, that the fun can seem quite limited. The player is only involved in the above activities aimed at rescuing civilians. The only differences concern the appearance of the boards to which we are transferred. In addition, the player has to face the most difficult bosses from time to time, but this is not the most important element of the game. Super Dropzone looks relatively poor visually. The action is still observed from the side. However, we can move in both directions. The most interesting were the backgrounds, which, however, change relatively rarely. This production has a fully fledged multiplayer for two people.
