Let me inform Microware about the REAL HISTORY of Hulk Hogan.First of all he was born in 1953,so in 1963 he would be only 10.Also,Wrestlemania I was in 1985. Mr.T wrestled in that time but I am not sure whether Hogan wreslted T in that Wrestlemania [I think he wrestled Iron Sheikh],also Hogan becomes Hollywood Hogan in 2003,that's total crap-he became Hollywood Hogan in WCW in June 1996. Alright,now the game:involves some stupid cutscenes and 5 floors where you have to shoot down guys and kill the Villain who has taken over WWF [ahem! it's now WWE] that is Mr.T nothing special, nothing original,Graphics are Tolerable,Soundtrack is okay,overall this game may not get bad ratings but the historical inaccuracies p* me off...
Cute in some respects this game gives you a few nice showdowns packaged in some pretty graphics and a bizzare storyline. The use of the word "nigger" sort of destroyed any charm the game might have had, but it was enjoyable. And I commend micr0 for the nice title picture. The music was also an added bonus but didn't do much aside from introduce the beginning and end of the game.
It was short, but if it was long I don't think it'd be as good.
Micr0wave has made a triumphant return with his first ZZT game in seven years: Hoganeater. The all-star cast (featuring Boothe Howard, Smiley Burnette, Mr. T, and last but most definitley not least, Bob Crane as Robert "Hulk" Hogan) pull off an amazing performance that will send you reeling.
You take on the role of Hogan. The digital comic opens in a ring of lies: The UN. A heated arguement has started between Hogan and Mr. T, over T's unorthodox practice of using UN planes to fly in autographed baseballs. Just when Hogan was beginning to win, T lobs a baseball, signed by baseball legend Rolly Fingers, into the ribcage of Hogan.
Robert was infuriated; what's a nigger doing in the UN, anyway? Hogan drives to Hot Pepper Hill, to confront his boss (Smiley Burnette). It was all a setup: Hogan is tied down and shaved, execution style. Left for dead in a laundry bag on the side of the highway, Hogan is found by Boothe Howard, who gives him hair implants, and the ability to vomit bubbles at his foes. Hogan bursts out of the doctor's office, and makes his way back to Hot Pepper Hill, to face his old Boss, with a mouthful of bubbles. Will Hogan succeed? With your ingenuity, maybe!
The graphics are astounding. There's a beautifully detailed picture of Bob Crane wearing a towel on the title screen. The locations look great, too, as they were all filmed and photographed ON LOCATION! Micr0wave cut no corners here.
The sound is a mixed bag. The dialogue is absolutely fantastic: audible, clear, and very well acted. The musical score, performed by grammy-winning orchestra "The Pee Wee Johnnies", leaves a bit to be desired from. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but not as good as what we've come to expect of them. The title screen theme song, however, really shines.
Gameplay is your standard digital comic faire, but it's not without its excitement! Between all that 'look'ing and 'think'ing, there's many a shoot (Barf?) out with the bad guys! Some are quite challenging, but nothing your typical shoot-`em-up player can't handle!
Great graphics? An all-star cast? Exciting action sequences? A cameo/tap-dancing scene by Jeremy "Be Anal" Beanal? Hoganeater has it all.
Good job, Micr0wave. Keep churning out the hits, like butter.
