Microsoft Xbox

Two of Superman's biggest rivals, Brainiac 13 and Lex Luthor, have plans for world domination. It's nothing new for the caped hero, but he must use all of his strength to stop both villains from taking over the world.

You have full control of his many powers, from flying around at the speed of light to using freeze breath, x-ray and heat vision. Time is a factor, so you must complete each task quickly, whether it be fighting off goons...

Superman: The Man Of Steel

Superman: The Man Of Steel

Commodore Amiga - 1989

Space Harrier style. Whether Superman selects heat vision or super-strength, you have to select the less than superhuman power of extreme patience to overcome the evil Parra demons. Once the first level has been...
