Super Back To The Future II is a Japan only platform game by
Toshiba/EMI and based on the popular movie of same name. The player
takes control of a super deformed version of Marty McFly and the game
starts out as he and the genius Doc time travel to 2015 in a desperate attempt to save
Marty's future. Our hero rides a hover-board and his only means of
attack is to flip the board in the air and to hit enemies
with it. Coins can be collected along the way and spent on vending machines
to purchase power-ups, extra lives or shields.
Marty's arch enemy Biff and his loyal minions usually wait at the end
of each area, and these frantic fights push
our hero to use elements of the scenery (usually in the shape of large buttons).
The game faithfully follows the blockbuster movie and
stages become fairly large later in the game. Each level is divided into sub-areas
and the story unfolds in cute original cutscenes. A password system allows
the player to save his progress.
