Game Introduction

Your team is the only possibility to save the world against an evil doctor and the thugs he brings. Travel around the world fighting against monsters such as a centaur, a one-eyed flying brain, and a "Blob" monster (who can convert his body in dangerous weapons), a living "Moai" from Easter Island fame, and the doctor himself as he cowers in a powerful robot of his own creation.

Game Play

Following the typical gameplay of Street Fighter II - The World Warrior, you can choose three different characters with the typical movements, but the game is fast and furious and the possibility to join the powers is fantastic. Each monster fought has one or more ways of being defeated and it is possible for a couple of skilled players (or a single player) to beat the game with one credit.
