Power Play (Nov, 1990)
Obwohl der Nachfolger zum Klassiker "Impossible Mission" vorletztes Jahr mit neuen Extras und neuen Robotern aufpoliert wurde, wirkt das Spiel etwas angestaubt. Die Nintendo-Umsetzung wurde zwar mit viel Liebe programmiert (es gibt nur minimale Unterschiede zur Computerversion), trotzdem hat das Genre heute Interessanteres zu bieten. Wer einen Veteran schreien und springen sehen will und intelligente Plattformspiele mag, sollte sich das gute Stück zulegen - gut spielen tut's sich allemal. Außerdem: selten hat ein Sprite so markerschütternd gebrüllt, wenn es in einen Abgrund stürzt.
The only saving grace of death is the fantastic sampled death scream. The idea of having to collect data and passcodes is interesting, but sadly the endless difficulty, added stress of a timer, and terrible controls let down what should have been a fun experience.

Should you choose not to accept this game, in truth, you won’t be missing much. Impossible Mission II is too tedious to be of any merit. Every room is the same thing: search for items, either use said items in that room, or move on to the next room. Watch your time. Repeat endlessly. That’s it. If your main character didn’t always move like he was in slow-motion, this game would be a breeze. His unwieldiness is the only reason for the game’s difficulty, but don’t worry, you have unlimited lives. I think dying lowers your time a little bit, so watch out for that. Or don’t. I’d go with the latter.
