In short time your fate will be sealed, Superman.There's no time to waste! Describe this atrocity of a game here.Superman
(or The New Superman Aventures
[sic]), unofficially referred to as Superman 64
, is a video game based on Superman: The Animated Series
and released by Titus Software
on May 31, 1999 on the Nintendo 64
. It is notorious for the negative reception it received from critics and is considered one of the worst games of all time.Lex Luthor
creates a virtual version of Metropolis and then succeeds in trapping Lois Lane
, Jimmy Olsen
, and Professor Emil Hamilton
within it. Superman is forced to enter Luthor's virtual world and SOLVE HIS MAZE.
Other villains in the game include Parasite and Brainiac.
The player assumes the role of Superman and is challenged to complete puzzle obstacles throughout the game; usually levels contain similar challenges. In many levels, Superman flies through a series of rings within a time limit

(which was actually the game's inability to render anything more than 10 feet away without being choppier than it already is), supposedly there to slow him down. Other levels feature Superman moving through buildings fighting various enemies and going out of his way to protect the virtual world's inhabitants.
Oh, and every ring-based level is a Timed Mission
