The Death and Return of Superman by Sunsoft is similar to many of the arcade games that proliferated in the 1990's. You could do stuff like punch, kick and use special abilities or supers as they used to call them. The only difference is that you didn't have to use tokens here. The game lets you play as several characters. It lets you play as the original Superman, as Superboy, as the Eradicator, as Steel and as Cyborg.
The game follows the comic series released in 1993 that chronicles the Death of Superman when Superman was killed by Doomsday. The video game even has cutscenes for this. Attacks for this game consists mosts of punches, kicks, jumps, grapples, throws and ultimate attacks. The play control is the same for each Superman. They just differ in appearance.
In my opinion, the game was quite good but it wasn't anything special. It is your run of the mill arcade beat them up type of game. It also involved scenes where Superman flies and takes out enemies which was fun. The game however has minimal replay value.
