Marvel's X-Men comic-book characters feature in this mission in the Murderworld amusement arcade. The story is told in an exclusive bundled comic - Magneto and Arcade have kidnapped Professor X, and the loyal X-Men must rescue him. If the X-Men are to save the day, the player must combine action and adventuring skills. A device to stop Magneto exists, but the pieces must be found. In total there are over 500 scenes of combat and action. You can switch between the X-Men at any time, with their special abilities ranging from Wolverine's claws to the Nightcrawler's teleporting incorporated into their moves. Other X-Men regulars feature in the game, complete with their special abilities.
Pressing the space bar gives access to a panel of icons at the bottom of the screen, which allow interaction with objects and use of special powers - watch out for your power and energy levels.
X-Men: Madness in Murderworld is a wonderful action-adventure game placed in Arcade's own amusement park, called, as you might've guessed already, Murderworld.
Professor X (Charles Xavier) has been kidnapped by Arcade and Magneto. You need to save him by finding scattered pieces of the device capable of stopping the villains. It's pretty much normal for a story taken from the Marvel universe.
Most of the game is maze-like and generally a royal pain to get around. Different enemies are nice, with the occasional boss that dies in less than a minute. The player gets six characters, whom are Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Cyclops, Colossus, Storm, and Dazzler. There is also the ability to pick up and use items, which is what gives the game its adventure-like qualities. Puzzles mostly consist of finding a certain key, then opening a lock; of course, only if Wolverine or Colossus can't rip it open. There are also traps, which consist of either things shooting up/falling on the player, or the player falling down several screens. There are also health potions in the game, which are very useful for keeping your X-Men alive longer. Some of the items which you need to win the game are located in something destroyable, so think twice before destroying objects.
The graphics are mostly average, although the different areas are nicely varied.
Sounds are a bit annoying, but still better than some others I've heard.
A great side-scrolling arcade game featuring all the X-Men and their cool powers, Madness in Murderworld pits the team against their arch-enemies Arcade and Magneto in Murderworld, the deadly amusement park of terror. The game boasts over 500 action and combat screens, and some puzzle-solving (e.g. find the right key for the door). The game also came with a limited edition comic book that leads up to the action.. and no, I'm not selling mine .
