Wayne's World is an action video game based on the film Wayne's World and released in 1993 by THQ. Different versions of the game were released; the NES and Game Boy games were developed by Radical Entertainment and feature both protagonists Wayne and Garth as playable characters. The Super NES and Sega Mega Drive/Genesis games were developed by Gray Matter and feature only Wayne as a playable character.
In the NES and Game Boy games, the player controls both Wayne and Garth in different levels; however, the Super NES version had only Wayne as a playable character. In the former, Garth's main attack is a laser gun and Wayne has a kick. In the Super NES version, Wayne uses his guitar as a weapon.
According to Flux magazine, Wayne's World was the 19th worst video game of all time.
An adventure game based on the film was released for personal computers by Capstone. Argonaut was also developing a version for the unreleased Super NES CD-ROM upgrade. Nothing is known of the gameplay, just that Argonaut planned to include footage from the movie and "a lot of heavy metal music".
