Though the evil Arcane has planted a bomb that destroys Alec Holland's laboratory, the young scientist is far from dead. His bio-restorative formula, mingled with the waters of the swamp combined to change him into the Swamp Thing!
As Swamp Thing, you must confront Arcane, who has exploited your formula. Fight his mutant Un-Men, an army of nightmarish creatures, in level after level of ecological action!
Swamp Thing fails to deliver on any of the themes it setts out to address. The graphics and animation are substandard, with detail playing a secondary role in the visual departments. Each level leads up to no type of a climax at all. While Swamp thing could have been cool, this effort definitely looks rushed.
Even though the NES is not the most technologically advanced machine, a lot of the newer carts have shown that good games can still be made for this system. This cart doesn't offer anything new and with sound, graphics, control and game play being less than average so is the overall game rating. A disappointment.
Choppy! Choppy! Sob! Sob! Why release an 8-Bit cart that offers nothing in terms of game play, graphics or originality? Licensing of course! Not even the Swamp Thing can save this poor example of 8-Bit technology. Fans of the movie will be very disappointed as will anybody who buys this cart.
The name says it all! This game doesn't belong on the GameBoy, let alone the NES! The graphics are mediocre, and the control is substandard. There are no sound effects worth mentioning, although plenty should be completely reworked. This game doesn't do the Swamp Thing justice.
