ALTERED BEAST (Sega - Megadrive - 1988)
Altered Beast is a beat'em up game released by Sega in 1988, for the Megadrive console. Is also known as Juuouki.
It is the time of gods, myths and legends. When men were warriors and courageously fought unnatural enemies in the endless battle of good against evil.
The goddess Athena has been abducted by Neff, the Lord of the Underworld. Her father, the great god Zeus, searched for a brave warrior strong enough to save her.
Zeus chooses a centurion who died with honour and courage on the battlefield, raising the warrior from the grave and granted him the power to morph into a powerful, holy beast in order to do battle against the unspeakable horrors of the underworld.
