I tried out the Transformers NES (Famicom) game and it really is impossible. 3 lives, no continues. It's just not do-able.

I kept thinking of Airworlf but I think there are games for Airwolf from the 80's.

I don't think there are any console Airwolf games but there are some for the home computers:

Ok, having thought of several things only to find that games have been made, I went back to my childhood when I used to go to the cinema on a Saturday morning and watch this guy -



That's right, Captain Marvel!

Shazam!!! The original "Adventures of Captain Marvel" was created in 1941 and no, I am not that old lol but he was my hero and more popular than Superman. Would make a great game me thinks

[size=100]Psst, look out for the film soon[/size] ;)
