The bad: 1995 is too late for an arcade style release, too short
Average Score: 9.1/10
Ever thought of a game with a comic book environment tagged along to it? Ever thought of making the game? Sorry to dissapoint you, but unless your making a sequel to this game, or if it's not Superman, then you're too late. Comix Zone is a highly classic Beat-'Em-Up that was released too late to buy. It's revolutionary because of its comic book game-play, which consists of you going through two pages per level, unlocking secrets by scrapping papers, and more.
Sketch Turner is a cartoonist whose comic book comes to life via a lightningbolt, and his villian, Mortus, comes out of the book to cause tons of chaos. It's up to you to control Sketch to save the day.
The game-play is just like a comic book, in that you must travel across a panel once at a time. This is very influential and original, considering its idea wasn't thought of before. However, The game could've been released in 1992 or 1993, and 1995 is too late for a game, despite the New Year release.
Graphically, the game has plenty of detail in it, and everything is clean and beautiful. The music is also inviting, and leaves nothing to be desired. Although you might consider passing on a game like this, the answer this time is no. Comci fans will be pleased of this game, one of the best beat-'em-ups created, and one of the best Genesis games ever. If you want a revolutionary Genesis game, look no further than Comix Zone.
