Superman Returns: Fortress of Solitude (GBA)
Especially not with this heroic music playing in the background.
And now I have to do it again.
A FEW PUZZLES LATER.
Okay fine, let's go do some actual Superman work.
Each wave of enemies drop a crystal when defeated, and apparently I need to collect as many as I can. Maybe a certain number of each colour, I don't know, I stopped paying attention.
This is about as basic as shoot 'em ups get, I fly up and down and press the correct button to kill the bad things as they appear.
Superman's usually against using lethal force, but these assholes interrupted his puzzle game so he'll slaughter the lot of them.
I started getting bored and just throwing pieces down randomly until I put one in the correct place and it stuck. But each mistake adds 30 seconds to the clock, and I only have 10 minutes to finish the whole set of puzzles, so I soon ran out and had to start again.
Oh, what about time travel, time freezing and teleportation, like that guy on Heroes?
Back to the puzzles then I suppose.
Superman game I've played so far. I'm not actually enjoying it, but it seems to work as a game. They've got around the problem of having an all-powerful player character by having him to play a game where his abilities are limited to things like shooting blocks he doesn't want with his laser eyes.
But I don't really want to play a game where I play as Superman playing a puzzle game, so I'm moving on to something else.
