sgm0173 - Developed by Beam Software Pty., Ltd. and Published by Data East USA, Inc., "Shadowrun" was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in May of 1993. In a post-apocalyptic world where magic has returned and society is controlled by massive corporations, you are a Shadowrunner. "Shadowrun" for the Super Nintendo was the first video game based on the Shadowrun tabletop role-playing game. At the start of the game, the player wakes up in a morgue with no recollection of his life. He only knows his name: Jake Armitage. This game from Beam Software tasks you with uncovering the rest of your identity and why you were killed. "Shadowrun" also has the distinctive honor of being one of the first film noir-style games on a console. The story is a loose adaption of the first Shadowrun novel, "Never Deal with a Dragon." For gamers who want to see everything this version has to offer, there are approximately 25 hours of gameplay.Track down your apartment and your identity in the early rounds of this SNES game. From there, you'll eventually uncover a plot that could change the world as you know it. "Shadowrun" features point-and-click gameplay that is unique for a platform system. You can examine everything in your environment, which often leads to new clues. When you talk to NPCs, you ask them questions from a list. Only knowing the right questions to ask will provide you with the necessary answers for your adventure. "Shadowrun" is not just a film noir game; it is also a cyberpunk one. As a result, this SNES title has a slightly futuristic look and feel. Characters can insert themselves directly into the internet, and it's common to see gene-spliced humans walking around. Like any good film noir story, your investigation will eventually lead to combat. Fight scenes take place in real time. The environment is displayed from an isometric perspective that gives you a broad view of the action at all times. Your character remains stationary while you aim a reticule. You'll need to pick off your enemies before they can shoot you. Often, your enemies are hiding in every nook and cranny. You'll fight not only other humans but also vampires, dragons, and reanimated skeletons. In addition to an array of weapons like pistols and assault rifles, you can also wield magic. After every kill, Jake earns karma, which he can use to increase his skills and health. He'll also earn Nuyen, the currency used to buy new weapons and armor. At certain points in this SNES title, you can directly enter the internet. Here, this SNES title becomes more like an RPG, or role-playing game, as you destroy nodes and collect data in turn-based combat. Publisher Data East captured the feel of the "Shadowrun" universe in this SNES version. The world is presented in grays and blacks, giving a sinister feel to the gaming environment. The music features a heavy dose of techno and bass. The character portraits are extremely detailed, replicating those found in the pen-and-paper game perfectly.

Pre-owned, includes game only, no box, manual or inserts included.
