About the Story
The fiendish Tax Collector and his gang of cronies are threatening the city and only YOU - the fabled Masked Defender - can stop him!

At bottom, Super Hero is entertaining writing trapped in excruciating code. I fervently hope that other talented IF writers can avoid this dastardly predicament.

Delron Review Compilation
Roughly written, but consistant
A little roughly written, but fairly consistent tonewise. Superheroics and particularly comic superheroics have been done before, and done better. The fact that the protagonist is a slob is hammered home a bit too heavily. There are a couple weird parser bugs, which I chalk up to ADRIFT, not this particular game, but which nonetheless marred my play-session. There are a couple of bugs, or things which appear to be bugs, and I don't think "manic" means what you think it means.

This game has the same sort of superhero tone as the Frenetic Five games. You are a superhero that isn't really that super.
The game had a fun tone, with some fairly silly humor. It's long though, and somewhat buggy. David Whyld's games tend to be fairly similar, so if you like one, you'll like them all-and vice versa.
Superhero parody involving a talking parrot and lots of comedic characters. Let down by quirky parsing, overly sparse implementation and verbose prose. The humor didn't quite work for me.
