Last Action Hero is a series of action video games based on the 1993 film of the same name. Versions were released for the NES, Super NES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, Game Gear, and MS-DOS. Versions were also planned for the Sega CD and Master System, but ultimately were not released. A separate version was released on the Amiga and was developed by The Dome. The MS-DOS version was developed by Psygnosis and offers full-motion video cut scenes from the film; the never-released Sega CD version was planned to include this feature as well.
Last Action Hero is based on the film of the same name. Taking the form of a side-scrolling beat-'em-up, in the SNES and Genesis version players have a strict time limit to defeat each level of the game. Every version of the game has the climactic showdown with Mr. Benedict (the movie's primary villain), except for the NES, Game Boy, and Game Gear versions. There are two car chase stages: one in Jack Slater's 'movie' world and another in Danny Madigan's 'real' world. The NES and Amiga versions however do not feature any car levels. The NES version has an original element that none of the other versions have: a stage that portrays Danny Madigan's 'version' of the classic Shakespeare play Hamlet.
