Masters Of The Universe: The Movie

By the power of Greyskull, I have the power! So He-man says, but can we take his word for it? He must fight nasty people and collect eight chords in five game sections. Chords are found in the streets, others can only be obtained by splattering Skeletons hit men. He-Man has brought along two of his pals to help him in his mission, Teela and Gwildor. He-Man may be the master of the universe but he definitely isn't master of the computer game. This is bad with a capital B and another of those boring Gauntlet variants which cropped up so much in the past. He-Man is a tiny character, mostly mid- screen, and a not very impressive one at that.

The graphics do slightly improve on some levels, but not enough to make you shout it from the roof tops! The tune doesn't resemble the cartoon series at all. The tasks and plot being exactly the same each load, does not help the lastability factor.
