Game Introduction

Choose from three monsters: a large lizard (very much like Godzilla), a large robotic ape, or a huge mutant human. You walk through a stage destroying planes, buildings, and other creatures. There are power-ups to make your player more powerful (it also changes your color), and power-ups that reward points. At the end of the stage you go head-to-head against a boss creature. Live out your Godzilla fantasy!

Game Play

The players progress towards the end of a stage destroying as much of anything and everything along the way. You then beat a boss creature to conquer the stage. There are small stages in between where you fight head-to-head against the second player for bonus points, or you fall from the sky or into water and try to collect points and power-ups while falling.

This would seem to be a very difficult game if you could not play it for free. You fight the bosses like a wrestling game but it seems to be based on chance if you get to pull a "move" on the boss, or he pulls one on you.
