Superman 64 is a game released for the Nintendo 64 based on the DC Animated Universe version of the character, Superman. This game is one that is considered very poor by the majority of gamers. This game was even included in Electronic Gaming Monthly's "Top 20 worst Games of All Time" article. This would not be the last offense Titus Software inflicts upon gamers.

This game was reviewed by the AVGN.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Gameplay consisted of two main portions: the Adventure portion and the mission portion. The former consisted of guiding Superman around a small world collecting keys, beating up enemies, and pushing buttons. The latter consisted of guiding Superman through a series of rings suspended in the air and rescuing innocents.

Multiplayer[edit | edit source]

There are two multiplayer modes in Superman 64. The first is a simple race through floating rings where one player tries to beat the others. The second multiplayer mode is a Deathmatch-style mode where one player is in a series of rings and the other player tries to push past them. Also your in Strange Floating Wheelchairs

Story[edit | edit source]

Superman's arch nemesis Lex Luthor has kidnapped friends of the man of steel; Lois Lane, Professor Hamilton, and Jimmy Olsen. The evil mastermind then imprisoned his helpless captives in a "virtual world" and it is up to Superman to rescue his friends.

Graphics[edit | edit source]

The backgrounds of Superman 64 consisted of a meager assortment of buildings, with the rest of the background covered in a green "kryptonite fog". The environments that Superman actually walks around in are sparsely populated with a small assortment of objects. The lack of art in this game is believed to have stemmed from an extremely lazy art department at Titus Software, the game's developer.
