Stargate is an action adventure developed in 1995 for the Sega Mega Drive and the Nintendo SNES game consoles. The game is based on the 1994 Sci-Fi blockbuster movie Stargate starring Kurt Russell and James Spader.
STORY / GAMEPLAY A team of scientists discovered a strange alien portal (a gate) called StarGate. US Army Colonel Jonathan O' Neil (you) assembles a commando task force to go through this strange gate and find out where it leads to. They ultimately all end up trapped on an unknown planet called Abydos inhabited by human beings that look as if they still live in the prehistoric years! Planet Abydos is a hostile place that's now ruled by a powerful alien being known as "Ra". He and his alien warriors, forced the Abydians to worship them as gods. Colonel O'Neil is now called to fight his way through deserts, caves, buildings, small villages and other dangerous areas around Abydos. His only weapon is a machine gun and some grenades to defend himself and kill every non-human creature on Abydos plus that he must watch for traps scattered around the areas.
GRAPHICS / SOUND The visuals on the SNES are awesome, with hundreds of colors and beautiful backgrounds and details. The music score of this game is a well tuned track that adds a lot to the, already eerie, atmosphere of Abydos and the sound FX consist of classic action explosions, gunfire and more.
