Apparently Hudson Hawk one of that rare breed - a good game from an appalling film.
The first thing that strikes you is the little Hudson Hawk character - he's beaut! But I suppose you lot want to know about the plot and stuff, don't you? Well, it's all very complicated and convoluted, so I'm not going to tell you. Oh okay, here's a remarkably brief summation... Hudson Hawk is an all round good cheese. He's discovered that a bunch of crims have got this machine that will soon be able to make gold, all they need is a few of Leonardo Da Vinci's personal belongings. As Hudson, you decide to foil them by stealing Leonardo's stuff yourself and then blackmailing the crims. Oh, and they've kidnapped a mate of yours too. Phew, eh?
Well, as I was saying, the little Hudson sprite is so cute - especially when he gets chucked off the roof by a St Bernard or jumps up and down on parasols. The game itself is a straightforward horizontally-scrolling platform game that'll take you quite a while to finish. The graphics are blocky, but they really work and your Hudson sprite is nice and easy to control. Dead good - a pleasant surprise.
People found it hard to believe that Thumper had once had a starring role in a motion picture. He'd grown so much that relatives often failed to recognise him.
