Can you defeat the guardians with your magical returning Warhammer, Boots of Power, ESP and Teleportation Activators? You'd better be a Super Hero else you'll end up in the Dead Zone!!
This 3D game blows others away - Super Hero is the best 3D game we've ever seen - a must for any real games player ... Codemasters
Fate has cast you in the role of an immortal, a superhero. To break the long, monotonous days, the gods and super heroes have taken to giving each other complex puzzles to solve. Today it's your turn to play the game, and for the very highest stakes - you must perform well, for all the other deities are watching you from above, ready to strip you of your immortality and status if you fail in your quest!
Luckily, Venus, the goddess of love, feels sympathetic and has hidden some useful objects in some of the rooms - find these and your task wil become a lot easier...
Playing The Game
The first thing you should do is explore the complex and find the four magical gifts the Venus has hidden for you - these will endow you with supernatural powers... Look for the power boots which enable you to jump, the returning warhammer, for slaying the myriad monsters and ghouls in the corridors... a trans-dimensional bag which nullifies the mass and size of an object, allowing you to carry it easily... and a mystical helmet which destines you to be showered with gifts from the watching gods.
The Treasures From The Gods
Once you have the Mystical Helmet, gifts from the gods will occasionally be bestowed upon you while you are in the corridors of the complex. Gifts could be:
Teleport Keys for using the teleports
Mercury's Winged Shoes for running more swiftly (only temporarily)
A Paralyser to eliminate monsters in the corridors
Gold to buy things from the traders, and
ESP Activators which, when taken to the ESP Orbs (in certain rooms) will guide you towards the next Guardian's Spirit (Green means right direction, Red means wrong direction)
Bodiless creatures with winged ears. You can buy things from them with your gold (extra lives, paralysers, teleport keys, information) or you can gamble with them! Run headlong into a trader to activate him.
Fuzzy balls that are found in some of the rooms - they home-in and kill you, unless you can jump on top of them
In the corridors, your way will sometimes be blocked by one of the five evil guardians. The guardians can only be vanquished by capturing their spirits, which are hidden in rooms in the complex.
Every time you capture a Guardian's Spirit, you will be thrown into the Dead Zone - if you survive, you are awarded a bonus life.
To complete the game, you must eliminate all five Guardians then enter the room behind the final Guardian. When you pause the game, the Player Status screen is displayed. This will tell you many things, including which of Venus' magical items you have found - you possess the ones that light up in yellow.
