DescriptionThe Incredible Hulk is an isometric 3D action game.
The popular Marvel comic book hero The Hulk returns to the PC, Playstation and Saturn systems to battle tons of lowly enemies and the occasional monstrous super-villain. When the lawful Pantheon society of superheroes kidnaps the green giant, he joins forces with his abductors and smashes through 13+2 isometric 3D levels (in a look reminiscent of the Loaded series of games).
True to the comic books, the Hulk relies on no other weapons than his massive muscles to punch, kick and crush his enemies. When he has accumulated enough gamma energy, he may use powerful special moves like a Vortex Spin or the Floor Hammer. Rare bonus items also allow the Hulk to summon one of the four Pantheon team members Atalanta, Ulysses, Ajax and Hector to assist in the thick of battle.
Most levels include at least one arch-enemy, such as Piecemeal, Trauma & Lazarus or the U-Foes. Luckily, the Hulk’s regenerative powers allow him to regain health slowly. Little seems to be left of the Hulk’s legendary leaping capacity, however, so the green meat ball is forced to hop from platform to platform every now and then.

TriviaThe Incredible Hulk is based on the comic book series of the same name. Nuclear scientist Robert Banner mutated into a brawny giant for the first time in 1962, when Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the first The Incredible Hulk comic book for the publishing house Marvel. Hulk lasted only six issues, but resurfaced in the Tales to Astonish series in 1964 and gradually became so popular that he pursued a solo career in The Incredible Hulk comic books from 1968 on. When The Hulk was launched in 1999, the original series ended at issue #474 (with 380 stand-alone issues).
