Now that he's a comic book superhero, Sketch can instantly fight like a one-man mercenary platoon!
Gain Ground (Genesis, 800 Wii Points): In the 31st Century, the human race was near perfection: no war, no poverty, and no conflict. With nothing to worry about, people lost their ability to cope with problems and conflicts and their survival instincts were nearly forgotten. The United Earth Government grew concerned over their passive planet and created the Gain Ground system, a war simulator that would help humans rediscover their lost instincts. Yet, the system malfunctioned and the creators became prisoners in their own creation. Team up with two courageous comrades to rescue your fellow humans and destroy the system.

When an evil magician named Agahnim begins kidnapping young maidens in Hyrule in a quest to break the imprisoning seal on Ganon, a young boy named Link is called upon to stop him.

Traversing both Light and Dark Worlds, he must navigate eight dark dungeons, fighting evil enemies and huge bosses. Help our hero prevent Ganon and Agahnim from shattering Hyrule forever.
