Game Introduction

In Action Hero, the player takes on the persona of Johnny Nero. Johnny is a comic book hero that plays in three very different 3-dimensional worlds:

Space Wars - An evil alien empire is at war with the human race. Johnny Nero is all that stands between them and our total annihilation.

Curse of The Mummy King - Johnny battles hordes of Egyptian evil enemies and an ancient Pharaoh to recover the priceless Jewel of Amon-Ra.

Ghost Town - Johnny is a gun-for-hire paid to clean out the evil sheriff and his gun slinging hordes of undead.

Game Play

The game features two bonus rounds per comic. You must shoot the amount of targets either under the time limit or before they get away. If you fail to complete a bonus, Johnny Nero will say, "You failed. This is going to hurt.", "You failed. I need a vacation.", etc., and results in losing half of your life bar to both players.
