Well the picture is of an empty street, so I'm going to guess that it's the strange disappearance of pretty much everyone else. The most important story in the Daily Planet's history, yet ironically the worst selling issue.
Fortunately he goes down with one punch. The only hard part about fighting these guys is trying not to walk into them while getting into position to hit them. Laser eyes would have been nice right about now.
These three fly in from the right, do a circle around the center of the screen, then fly off to the left. I should be perfectly fine next time if I can just stand in the right place when I see them coming.
Even though the enemies can run past this forcefield thing just fine, I'll have to destroy it before continuing past. This game really isn't doing a good job of making me feel like the unstoppable Man of Steel so far.
I do have a super punch that can take it out in one hit. But I just tried that and missed, so I'll have to resort to regular punching until that's had time to recharge.
Okay, so Superman's powerset in this game is:
- Can jump over twice his own height.
- Able to take several bullets or punches before dying.
- Occasionally able to punch really hard.
One continue left.
I doubt this game's going to get any better, but I can't just give up halfway through the first level. I'm know I'm not great at games, but I'm not that bad.
ONE RESTART AND TWO CONTINUES LATER.
The red shield gives me a health refill, so now I have a fighting chance to make some progress.
