I played Superman for the first time on my Nintendo Entertainment System in the late 80s, and I enjoyed the game a lot, because the movie was spectacular and being able to control one of my favorites superheros was incredibly exciting. The game was a side-scrolling platformer mixed with puzzle games. Saving Metropolis from Lex Luther was Superman's task in the NES version. There was an Energy Level bar, power-ups and sometimes a call from "help" in the city - this game had them all. Transforming into Superman was easy: I only had to enter one of the two phone booths scattered around Metropolis.
If you like Superman, try other games: Death and Return of Superman.
