It’s time to get voting for SNExploration 31, even though 29 just came out! It’s all thanks to our new system. Here’s the twitter poll:
Dimension-Force or D-Force
D-Force, or Dimension Force, is a Super Nintendo vertical shoot 'em up in which the player controls a blue and red Apache helicopter. Each stage alternates between “Shooting Mode”, which plays like a traditional shoot 'em up with realistic enemies and “Exploration Mode”, which allows the player to change their altitude and fight unusual enemies like dinosaurs.
Like the later Axelay, D-Force takes full advantage of the Super Nintendo’s Mode 7 by emphasizing its sprite scaling technology. Before starting each stage, the player takes off from a zoomed-in version of the background (similar to Pilotwings) and, upon losing all their lives, spirals towards the incoming ground in the same effect. The Exploration Mode stages allows the player to drop their height, which also zooms in on the background.
Snow White in Happily Ever After
Snow White in Happily Ever After is a platformer for the Super Nintendo. It is based on the 1993 Snow White-themed Filmation animated movie Happily Ever After, from which the game borrows its subtitle. The player, as Snow White, passes through a series of forested areas while attempting to combat the bereaved and vengeful brother of the original movie’s Evil Queen, Lord Maliss. Eventually, the player can also control the enigmatic “Shadow Man”, who helps protect Snow White.
The game is the third attempt to create a game based on the movie, following a canceled NES game and a Genesis game.
Indiana Jones’ Greatest Adventures
Indiana Jones’ Greatest Adventures is a 1994 SNES action platformer that chronicles the three Indiana Jones films released at the time. The player, as Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones Jr., must progress through a series of stages inspired by the three movies via his fists, whip or with his pistol. The latter two must be found first before they can be used. The pistol is used to defeat enemies, while the whip can be used this way but can also be used as a grappling tool, for the platforming elements of the game.
Indiana Jones’ Greatest Adventures is inspired by JVC’s earlier Super Star Wars series. The game makes special emphasis on the sound and look of the movies, with action that is fast-paced and Arcade-like.
