As an early gamer I did not have access to a NES or SNES like many of my friends, I did have a GameBoy, but that’s a different story. The only way I got to play games was on the computer. Among those were the Humongous Entertainment games, Sierras point and click adventures, and puzzle games like The Incredible Machine.

Among the games I remember most was one I found in a discount/bargain bin, a place usually reserved for games so bad no one dare touch for fear of certain death. Okay that last part was a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the idea.

However this one game drew my eye. I’m not sure if it was the cartoon characters on the cover, or the exciting sounding name, but needless to say I begged my dad to buy it for me.

Ladies and gents, I give you, The Adventures of Hyperman!
