Defenders Of Dynatron City started out as a video game for the NES developed by Lucasfilm Games. It also got a six issue comic and an animated pilot to help with promotion... and then people actually played the game.
The setting is Dynatron City, the futuristic home of Proto-Cola, a drink that causes mutation, much to the delight of the consumer. Unfortunately, that's not what the Mad Scientist that created it was intending, so he falls back on the old standard of building a robot army to scare away city residents.
Some stuff happens and suddenly there is a team of super powered construction workers there to fight the bad guy. Including Jet Headstrong, Buzzsaw Girl, Toolbox, Ms. Megawatt, Monkey Kid and Radium Dog
Tropes appearing in Defenders of Dynatron City include:
- Badass in Distress: If one of the heroes is defeated, they're captured and held hostage, requiring you to rescue them before you can use them again.
- Nintendo Hard
- Stillborn Franchise: Detailed above.
- Timed Mission: All of the levels have a time limit. Usually one that leaves very little room for error, especially in later stages.
