Game Play

The game is played like another Capcom puncher, Final Fight. One object is to investigate the ruins of 20th Century New York, now buried under water after a massive earthquake. Another is to find out why so many dinosaurs are being captured, mangled, and used in strange genetic engineering projects.

Technical

The CP System I board uses a 68000 CPU while the audio circuitry uses a Z80 and YM-2151.

Fixes

This game uses two "suicide batteries". One is located on the C-board of the PCB and the other is located on the Q-Sound board. When either of these batteries die, the game will no longer operate. You will be greeted with a blank screen upon power-up, usually blue or green, sometimes black. A hack is possible to revive the game, even if both batteries are dead, involving burning two or more new EPROMs, using the c-board from a different CPS-1 game (one that doesn't have a suicide battery), replacing the custom Z80 with a standard Z80 and doing a bit of soldering.
