Realm is a Super Nintendo Entertainment System platform video game with shooting elements that was originally released in 1996.

Summary[edit]

Firing red energy shots at a bunch of enemies that resemble fireballs.

This video game takes place in the extremely futuristic year of 5069[1] with the player being in control of a young Biomech cyborg.[1] An alien invasion has devastated the entire planet of Earth; destroying almost every human being and devastating our cities.[1] Earth's last hope is a cyborg that travels through five levels (realms) to defeat the enemies with laser weapons and other Space Age guns and save what's left of humanity.[1]

This game was released near the end of the Super NES' lifetime and features extensive graphics for a side scrolling action game. This game was reviewed on September 1996 (88th) issue of Nintendo Power[3] - an issue that essentially previewed games that were going to be released in the fourth quarter of that year (up to and including some Christmas releases). A future issue of the same magazine would review this game, giving it average marks in fields like graphics, overall game play, and its overall fun factor.

Weapons[edit]

  • TR1- Fires three spreading plasma shots.[1] Inflicts medium-light damage.

  • GSX750- A machine gun-like rapid fire gun. Inflicts heavy damage.
  • CBR600- Fires small fireballs that act like boomerangs.[1] Inflicts medium-heavy damage.
