Lupin III


A puzzle action game featuring monkey punch's Wolf and co.

This really makes use of the SNES's processing power. There are great in-between images and animations a brilliant intro and really well animated cartoony sprites.

The action has you controlling Wolf as he searches around a large complex looking for the main computer in each one so he can open the doors and find the exit. He does this with a range of mad gadgets including spring shoes, stun light and grappling hook.

The music is nice and catchy but as it plays non-stop in the background in all of the early stages it can get annoying.

There is a bit of slow-down when there are a lot of sprites on screen at once and the repetitive nature of the game could get boring. Even with passwords to save you replaying the same bits over it is still a challenging and enjoyable game.
