"Last Action Hero" Is Released

Last Action Hero for the NES, Super NES, Mega Drive/Genesis, Game Boy and Sega Game Gear is one of a handful of video game adaptations of the Arnold Schwarzenegger film of the same name, this time by Sony Imagesoft.

A Sega Master System version was also developed, but never released. Unlike many such adaptations, the game closely follows the plot and scenery of the movie. The game, like the movie, was not received with much enthusiasm from the public. In fact, all versions of the game faced an even poorer reception than the film, receiving mostly negative reviews.

Last action Hero (Gameboy)

Similar to the SNES port the gameboy version doesn't differ too much.The game is a side scroller Beat 'em up which consists of moving from left to right and from right to left beating any enemies on screen. You move from point A to point B beating every enemies you find. Along the way the player must collect pieces of paper and after a certain amount of paper you get an item which are really important to the player because without items the game cannot continue. The game levels are counted on scenes and every 3rd scene there is a boss which the player has to fight.The game also followed scenes of the movie faithfully with detailed background from the film and the story line.

The Sega Master System is an 8-bit cartridge-based video game console that was manufactured by Sega and was first released in 1986. Its original Japanese incarnation was the Sega Mark III (although the "Master System" name has also been used in Japan). In the European market, this console launched Sega onto a competitive level comparable to Nintendo, due to its wider availability, but failed to put a dent in the North American and Japanese markets. The Master System was released as a direct competitor to the NES/Famicom in the third videogame generation. Despite its shaky performance in the major territories, it enjoyed over a decade of life in smaller markets.

The later Sega Game Gear is effectively a hand-held Master System, with a few enhancements.
