Game Introduction

Players bash enemy mecha/robots and proceed through different beautiful 2-D hand-drawn environments. The character and mecha designs are typical high Capcom design. As you defeat enemies pieces of their mech will break off. You can use these pieces to upgrade your own mech with new attacks, treads, drills, flamethrowers, etc. Items are also left to replenish health and gain points. Pushing multiple buttons together yields a powerful attack that drains your life bar slightly.

A common problem with Capcom B Boards is that they appear to have staticy lines onscreen. This can be fixed by turning off the power and re-attaching the A and B Boards. Sometimes a small push on the B board in a downward motion (while playing) works as well.
