Aero the Acrobat (SNES / Super Nintendo)

Game Profile

The madman industrialist Edgar Ektor has seized control of the World of Amusement. He and a deranged cast of fairground freaks threaten the circus. The only hope for survival is the high-flying, death-defying AERO THE ACROBAT!

Spine-tingling terror unfolds as AERO tackles Ektor's wicked henchmen. Bungee jump into a battle with evil! Skydive toward the danger below! Hang on for the ride of your life as you rise and plunge on a roaring roller coaster! Tiptoe across a terrifying tightrope! Then power drill and twist AERO right through every sinister circus enemy imaginable. And all the while, the show must go on!

It could become a carnival of carnage in the World of Amusement. Because the evil Ektor isn't clowning around...and there's nothing amusing about that.

So, I guess this means Aero the Acro-Bat and the other Iguana games are coming to the VC. Cool.
The first one looks interesting.

Iguana really shouldn't have much to do with this rerelease. It's rather Sunsoft. So I wouldn't hold my breath for games like Turok for example.

As for Aero, he looks like a fun character to control. I was just surprised that this game, which I have heard about for years, was rated for the VC when I found out yesterday.

This one I always wanted to play during the 16-bit era but never got the chance. I may just pick this up when it's available.

It is a cool game, but it was pretty hard from what I remember, and the controls were kind of bad. But overall I think the game is pretty good.
