Green lantern may not be remembered for much other than a failed movie with Ryan Reynolds in the last decade, but long before that in the early ’90s, British developer Ocean Software worked on a licensed Super Nintendo video game for the DC Comics hero.
This unreleased project has largely been shrouded in mystery until now, but thanks to video game historians Liam Robertson and Frank Gasking – the creators of Games That Weren’t – we’ve now got our first look at the game in motion after all these years.
Ocean began working on the Green Lantern in 1991 for multiple platforms, but put it down within months. In 1993, the work started again about the project, this time for SNES. It was a mix of genres, including a platform game, shooting them up and even making use of the Nintendo System̵
This third roof borrowed the company Jurassic Park 2 motor and aims to be more true to the source material. It also swapped Hal Jordan for the new Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, but was eventually threatened when DC Comics announced a “world-changing” event for series that also affected the wider DC universe.
