Game Introduction

The player characters were ordinary people until they were mutated into the game's monsters: George, the giant ape Lizzie, the giant lizard and Ralph, the giant wolf. George was mutated after swallowing mega-vitamins, Lizzie was mutated after bathing in a radioactive lake, and Ralph was mutated after eating sausage scam. The mutants' goal is to destroy every city which they come upon. The game has 768 days of destruction and some of them are alike.

Game Play

The players move from city to city destroying skyscrapers and various vehicles and eating people that get in the way. Health is awarded at startup and during the game by putting quarters in. Health is decreased by being shot by National Guardsmen, being hit by another monster, falling, being hit by cops or tanks, going underwater, being struck by lightning, or by eating something bad, like dynamite. Health is replenished by eating food found in the buildings. Once all buildings in a city have been destroyed, the monsters move onto another city.

Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

It seems that each monster has a particular person that they can hold on to: George holds a woman in the red dress, Lizzie holds the middle-aged man, and Ralph holds a business man. Holding these people will increase your score. To do this go up to the appropriate person with the appropriate monster and do as if you were to eat them. You will hold them in your hand until you hit punch again. Fair warning: holding too long will cause the person to punch you and you will lose control until the monster lets go of the person.
