Originally, the X-MEN started out as classic comic, but over the years, there have been many incarnations of the franchise, including a TV cartoon series, and even a motion picture film. To tie in with the release of the film, a number of video games were sent into production, and now, for the first time ever, X-MEN makes it’s way onto GameBoy Color in the form of a beat-em-up called, X-MEN: Mutant Academy.

X-MEN: Mutant Academy lets players train as one of their favourite mutants to become a full-fledged member of the X-MEN. You can fight as 10 different X-MEN: including Wolverine, Cyclops, Gambit, Storm, Beast, Phoenix, Magneto and Sabretooth. Each character has unique, signature mutant powers, abilities and moves.

Because the GameBoy Color has been pushed so hard, the developers were able to squeeze a lot of power out of the little purple box, making X-MEN a valid 2D beat-em-up.
