ActRaiser is an early SNES game that show’s off the strength of Nintendo’s recently released powerhouse 16-bit console. With cutting edge graphics, multi channel stereo sound, this game developed by Quintet and published by the legendary Enix pushed boundaries. More ambitious than it’s demands on the new hardware though was its fit large game design. Combining elements of city-building, god-sim, and action platformer, ActRaiser brought players the control of a world at both the 30,000 feet and on foot level.
