PLAY THE WORLDS GREATEST CAT BURGLAR

Eddie Hawkins, also known as "Hudson Hawk", just got out of prison after serving a long 10 year sentence. He's vowed to give up his illegal profession as the world's greatest cat burglar. That was until ultra-rich and mega-trendy Darwin and Minerva Mayflower forced him out of retirement. They needed the best thief in the business to steal three Leonardo da Vinci artifacts. If the Hawk-man refuses to work for the Mayflower's, they will kill Hawk's best friend!

With his back against the wall, Hawk accepts this new mission which sends him around the world in search for the three artifacts. What Hawks doesn't know, however, is that these priceless objects when combined together are extremely lethal, as in goodbye civilized world! Hawk eventually discovers this reality with the help of Anna Baragli. With this new found knowledge, not only does Hawk have to track down the necessary artifacts to save his friend, but also put a stop to the Mayflowers' evil scheme.

In Sony Imagesoft's "Hudson Hawk" for the Nintendo, you play Bruce Willis' character, "Hudson Hawk", searching for the artifacts while avoiding the police, the Mayflowers and other dangerous traps. You'll also have to deal with jumping across ravines and buildings throughout your quest.

Game Reviews

Another movie title has been converted into the portable format! Find a way into the museum and steal the precious artifacts within! Watch out for dogs!

Released in 1991, this video game was published by Sony Imagesoft and developed by Ocean Software Ltd.

A cat burglar, Hudson Hawk, has got a mission: he must get the three works of art by Da Vinci's: "The Sforza", the rocking horse; his sketchbook that he called "The Codex", and a precious crystal. For this mission, Hudson Hawk has to go through a mansion, castles, rooftops, subways, and the Vatican. Certainly, collecting all these things will not be as easy as it seems to be. Hawk has to come across not only security guards, guard dogs, and others, but also he must do his best to avoid setting off alarms. To defend and past by safely, Hawk is able to punch enemies, or throw a ball at them.

Hudson Hawk may not have been a big hit at the box office, but it could be a hit on your Game Boy. Sony Image-soft has put this bad boy gone good on three missions to save his best friend and the world's economy.

Mission Impossible

Darwin and Minerva Mayflower are rebuilding Leonardo da Vinci's Alchemy Project, a machine that will create gold and send the world into financial ruin. They've got Eddie Hawkin's friend on ice until he steals the Project's key component for them.

In this side-view, multi-scrolling action/adventure, Hawkins, a.k.a. Hudson Hawk, encounters menacing obstacles that range from live creatures to electrical devices. Armed only with his fists and some baseballs, Hawk has to jump his way around rooftops, factories, mansions, and even the Vatican. Hawk has all sorts of cool moves. Most of the time he just needs to run and jump. However, he can crawl on his hands and knees in tight spots, climb ladders, and even scale hand-over-hand on high-hanging ropes and pipes.

Mastering Hawk's easy-to-con-trol agility is critical, because the really deadly obstacles (the electrical devices) can't be stopped with a baseball. Instead, Hudson has to find hidden switches which momentarily turn them off. Hawk also finds money bags, which hike up his score as does pummeling his enemies. It's a good thing he starts out with five lives. For a fighting chance, he also gets three continues with three lives each.

Hawk's Eagle-Eyes

Hudson Hawk will tease your brain and test your thumbs. The graphics are excellent for a Game Boy game, and the sound's above normal there are no cutesy tunes here. Instead, you get a pulsating, ominous tune. This cart may end up being a bad influence to those who play it, because it makes the life of crime fun!

ProTips:

  • Mission: Part 4-M you don't successfuty jump over the burner after switching off the second fan, forget it You can't go back to the fan's switch to turn it off again.
  • Mission Ifart 6-The only way to avoid getting electrocuted by the electronic eye is to jump over the beam. Be sue to time your jumps.
  • Look for poles or wires to scale hand-over-hand. They will save you from falling.
