Comix Zone

aka: Comix Zone Classic

Description official descriptions

Sketch Turner was a starving comic book artist, living with his pet rat Roadkill... that is until a lightning storm mysteriously brought his cartoon villain, Mortus, to life and imprisoned Sketch within the pages of his own comic book. Now trapped in the world that he himself created, but someone else is now drawing, Sketch must battle through the pages of his own comic book, and past his own creations, to a final battle with Mortus. Perhaps one of his own creations, General Alissa Cyan might be able to help...

Comix Zone is a side-scrolling fighting game with a difference, you're inside of a comic book and you yourself know it. Smash enemies into the sides of frames, rip through the paper to unleash a super move and otherwise wreck havoc throughout the limitations of the graphic novel. Sketch himself can jump, attack and use various items that he finds along the comic book, including his rat friend, Roadkill. Button combinations can be used to unleash powerful techniques.

The game progresses linearly through each page of the comic book, however secret paths and alternate routes through the story can be discovered. At the end of each level, Sketch receives a super hero rating for how well he's progressing.

There are two endings in the game, depending on whether you have saved the girl on the last stage or not.


The end of this game states patent pending. This refers to US Patent 6,010,405 "Videogame system for creating simulated comic book game", filed in December 1994 by Sega Enterprises Ltd, and approved in January 2000.


Some versions of the original release of the game include a bonus music CD - in the US, an American Recordings sampler (featuring The Jesus and Mary Chain, Julian Cope, Love and Rockets among others), while the European version (and also the PC version in the US) features an EP with the music of the game played by an actual rock band in an early 90s grunge style. It was later sold as a regular music EP.
