Superhero League of Hoboken is one of those games that is fun to play, diverse, addictive and weird. In other words it has all the needed ingredients for keeping you amuzed for hours to come.
You take the role of the newly elected leader of The Superhero League. Your name; The Crimson Tape! Your amazing superpower; Create Organizational Charts! Your mission; To nurture the rebirth of a new society, to ease the suffering of the dark age, and to provide a place where superheroes can always find a date on Saturday night! This is not an easy task, but luckily you're not alone. With you in the beginning you have Tropical Oil Man (capable of raising the cholesterol levels of his opponents), Robomop (an intelligent kitchen appliance with the ability to clean almost any mess), The Iron Tummy (capable of eating spicy foods without any distress), Captain Excitement (whose aura of lethargy and dullness can put many opponents to sleep instantly) and Mademoiselle Pepperoni (capable of seeing inside a pizza box without even opening it)! Yup, those are your rag-tag band of freedom fighters. Together you must stand against the evil work of your arch-nemesis Dr. Entropy.
You might think that your chances are slim with such a crew, but do not underestimate their powers. Mademoiselle Pepperoni will help you avoid a lot of trouble by her superpower. Pizzaboxes may hold untold fortunes, but also untold horrors! Also, your heroes are not static. They will learn new powers and they will also enhance their old ones. And you will also get new superheroes later in the game.
But what would superheroes be without fancy gadgets?
Superhero League of Hoboken has a wide array of equipment for you to choose from. Ranging from close-range armaments and long-range weaponry, to clothing and protective gear. You can give your characters such items as a Padded Jockstrap, Rubber Knee Pads, Sling Shot, Rubber Earmuffs, Extra-Large Rubber Band (Long Range Weapon), Areobic Shoes.... etc. By just imagine how they must look, can make you laugh for hours.
The game is quite fun and easy to play. Graphics look alright, but they are nothing spectacular. As for sound... I didn't hear any, but the game is still enjoyable. All in all the game is well-balanced. The bad guys are not too tough, and with a little training and some usage of superpowers, you should be alright. I would give this game 4 points for being average in every aspect, but with a fun-factor that is through the roof!
The future ain't what it used to be...
Good luck! Be brave! Be bold! Don't screw up!
