Originally a game brought out for the MegaDrive/Genesis in 1988, Altered Beast has appeared on virtually every gaming system known to man! Despite a restricted amount of levels (4), and besieged with in-game slowdown at times… This side scrolling beat ‘em up is still a lot of fun. The whole game has a very mythological theme and you play as a dead Roman Centurion, who has to battle the undead, monsters, animals, giant wasps and whatnot, to rescue a Goddess.
As you defeat your enemies, you collect power ups in the form of pulsating orbs which allow you to transform into… you guessed it, an Altered Beast! Your greater size and power then allows you to more easily defeat your enemies! (Which is good because as you progress through the game, the bad guys come thick and fast… )
And what would a beat ‘em up be without a boss fight at the end of each level? This game has everything you want from a video game…
Proof of its brilliance is that it is still being downloaded by Wii owners today. A quick read of this Wikipedia Article will explain more than I ever could…
