Aero the Acro-Bat is a video game designed by David Sillre (also known as Maximo: Ghosts to Glory) for Super Nintendo and Mega Drive/Genesis, developed by the deceased Iguana Entertainment and published by Sunsoft in October 1993.
The plot is inspired by the traditional feature of the "brand mascots", which began with the advent and success of the blue hare Sonic the Hedgehog, the game introduces Aero, a resident red bat and a circus worker.
His job is to defend the circus by Edgar Ektor, a former malicious clown who usually works in the same circus, now eager to close it. To exacerbate Aero's mission there is Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel, squirrel submitted by Ektor.
The levels are characterized by numerous platforms and to reveal portals, ducts for subsequent missions, it is necessary to fulfill precise tasks. Beyond the rims, stay erect on a platform before its disintegration, climb on roller coaster etc ...
Four are the worlds available and each one has five levels, each lying with deadly spikes placed in many hiding slots.
To eliminate its opponents, Aero can spin in the air to form a drill, or explode bullets similar to the stars - these are limited.
The version for Super Nintendo was released through the Virtual Console service for the Wii console in the PAL region on July 23, 2010 and in North America on July 26, 2010. The game has also a sequel, that was released a month later.
