Post by Larry Laffer »

I've played(and still do) SuperHero League of Hoboken and I enjoy doing it... I'd like to share experience(and/or tips) about it





Presuming that someone on this site ever played this game

Well... You may call it a parody towards all the party games(Eye of the beholder, ain, Might and magicetc.). The action takes place on the Eastern Coast of America, in the year 2560(or somthing like that). You are Crimson Tape, the superhero captain and your superpower is Create Orgasitional Charts, You must lead your merry Mutants(with superpowers varying from "Increase the foe's collesterol to Eat spicy foods without any Destress) trough out the fight aginst DR. Entropy,it's realy fun...
For downloads see <Link removed>
for a better review than this see http://www.mobygames.com/game/superhero ... of-hoboken
it's realy cool and it's worth a shot...

[MOD EDIT: Link removed, sorry the site contains warez]

Sorry I'm going to have to remove that download link, though the game sounds really cool, if I can get motivated enough to start playing games again I'll definitely have to check this one out.

No worries, the only 'warez’ site we allow linking to is The Underdogs, and I believe it's still down.

I played & still own SuperHero League of Hoboken & I still enjoy it.

To The_Sinister_Mastermind,

This game is a DOS RPG/Adventure game made years ago by Legend Entertainment (they were shut down about 1-2 years ago by Atari). This game takes place in the northeastern USA. You visit places like New York City, East Orange, NJ, Harrisburg, PA, Scranton, PA, et al.

You make money by defeating enemies which you can use to buy new weapons & armor . Your superheros also have superpowers which they use against enemies. For example, there is a character called Oil Man whose power can raise the cholesterol of enemies which causes damage to the enemies, et al.

From your description I'm reminded of Syndicate, which was a kick arse game, so I'll definately need to check this one out if I ever locate a copy, thanks for the info.
