Overview

A Roman centurion who had died in battle is resurrected from the dead by Zeus, who ordered the warrior to save his daughter, Athena, from a Demon God called Neff in the Underworld. To become able to withstand the perils, the warrior gets the ability to absorb spirit balls who turn him into an Altered Beast, a part animal, part human creature of formidable force. Between each level are small animations giving the player glimpses of Athena’s peril.

After the centurion arrives in Dis, he faces Neff himself, who becomes a rhinoceros monster. After he is defeated, a blue bird comes out of the ground and transforms back to Athena. Afterwards she is shown holding arms with her lycanthropic hero, thanking him for rescuing her.

    One of the Megadrive launch titles if I remember correctly!  Rise from your grave and power up and transform into a myriad of different beasts!  Loved this game on the Megadrive and will always remains a classic!

  • Lovely start. Nice site, keep the good work!

  • walk along kick , walkalong punch ,power up i loved this game when i was a kid and the jap art work was so much better than the pal version .

  • Whoa! ‘Do not touch’??? Perhaps two people should review a game? You say Space Harrier is worth a play and not this? eer… This game is hilarious- ‘Wise fwom your gwave’! Played this a lot back in the day and still play it sometimes now. It’s best played on the hardest setting with 5 lives and two people playing, SEGA we’re always cussed for making easy games but that was the reason for skill settings. Used to make me wonder about reviewers sometimes.
