NDS Impossible Mission - Screenshots

Screenshots of the revival of a classic: Impossible Mission. Stay a while... Stay forever!

It's hard to believe that it was twenty-five years since the original release. Impossible Mission was the first game to use real synthesized speech, an incredible development when first unleashed on the 8-bit formats. The original game included a random game-map system which ensured that no two games were the same. Although the original still stands the test of time today, inclusion of brand new graphics and sound ensures that Impossible Mission is primed to thrill a brand new audience.

The gamer takes the role of a secret agent attempting to stop evil genius Professor Elvin Atombender who has been tampering with National Security Computers. Players must penetrate Atombender's base, attempting to recover parts of the system password whilst avoiding deadly robots in a race against time.

Whilst the game has been re-written from the ground up and features new graphics, 3D objects, new Sound Effects and Music the gameplay remains impressively loyal with the game layout changing for every new game. There are now three main characters to choose from plus a brand new tutorial mode. The player can now chose from three game modes, new, original and for the purist; a hybrid mode with the original gameplay using the updated graphics.

  • ah, impossible mission, not mission impossible. I misread. never played it. what's this supposed to be for anyway? gba? virtual console? ds? I mean, the title image has the ds logo, but to release this on the ds seems.. silly.

  • The screenshots are for the DS. We currently don't know if the Wii version is an actual game or a VC download. A VC download would be better, as it would add Commodore 64 to the console list.

  • this one is the DS version. The Wii version will be a full game (not a VC title), as System 3 released a boxart for the game (one looking very similar to Splinter Cell boxes :)).

  • I'd heard about Impossible Mission on the Wii...I thought it was another tacky £20 'deal' like Super Fruit Fall. :P

  • Wow. The memories. I think it's been ten years since I last played IM on the old c64.
