Action / Adventure game
Future Boy Conan is based on a very popular animation series
in Japan and created by the now world famous Hayao Miyazaki.
In a non so distant future, most of Earth inhabitants have been wiped
out by a powerful new weapon. Humanity, in a last attempt to leave the
condemned world, tries to flee to the stars without success. Conan,
a ten years old boy, is a direct descendent of the people who, onboard
spaceships, tried to escape. The original animation tells the story of
Conan, and his cute friend Lana, and their adventures in
this new devasted world. They are both pursued by the people of
Industria who have only one goal in mind, to capture Lana's
grand father who, they think, know the secret of a special weapon.
The game puts the player in the shoes of Conan. The young boy,
like other kids, has strange powers. He can communicate with many animals
and has also an unusual strength. This feature is also present in
this side scrolling action game and most of the stages unfold following
the anime's story. Conan can run, jump and kick his enemies. He can
also use a limited stock of spears.
