Not a great game but it has its place in history
22 March 2018 | by EasternZZSee all my reviews

This game was very popular on the Sega Genesis. It is a very short, bare-bones beat em up. You can beat this in less than 20 minutes.

+)The music is memorable and the voice clips will remain with you forever

+) Each stage is very different from the previous stage

+) You get a new beast form for each level

+) The controls are very easy to play

+) The story is good

~Extremely short game but it has to be since it was originally released on the arcade ~Some cheap enemies that will trap you and kill you quick ~No continues if you lose all your life ~Very basic fighting with one animation for punching and one for kicking. There are no combos.

Overall this game is fun to play if you have 15-20 minutes of free time. Good to play on handheld on the plane or whatever.
