Story

Invading aliens have now approached Earth, threatening all life. The fate of the world lies in the hands in a small group of people, who enlist the aid of Godzilla. Controlling the monster through a transmitter on the Super-X2, players must lead Godzilla through several cities. You the player, soldier Taniguchi, and Miss Yano ride in Super-X2, always flying within a 3-kilomter radius of Godzilla to control him. There is a backup Super-X2 at the Osaka base. Taking the defender to fight a final boss that awaits at the end of each level. Yet aliens and monsters aren't Godzilla's only worries, as he will face smaller obstacles such as tanks, electricity towers, mines, and UFOs as well. Can the terror of Japan save the world? Or will the age of man come to an end.

Each level is timed, and if you do not finish it in that time you will fail the level.

Playable Characters:

Playable Character: Godzilla
Hit Points:
Height:
Weight:
600 - 700*
100 meters
60,000 tons
Attacks:

Tail Attack [low fighting spirit]: The tail that supports Godzilla's huge body is also a powerful weapon of attack. When his tail makes full contact, the damage is considerable.
Body Strike / Head Butt [medium fighting spirit]: Striking an enemy with his 100-meter long, 60,000-ton body is a fully destructive attack. You can count on this technique to do major damage to the enemy.
Fire Breath Attack [high fighting spirit]: This is a super-powerful heat ray and is Godzilla's death blow technique.
Hyper Fire Breath Attack [very high fighting spirit]: This is a fire breath attack with much more power. It might be a by-product of shooting the control box into Godzilla.
Question Mark: This is a random attack in which you do not know what attack Godzilla will make. If you are lucky, Godzilla may use one of his strong techniques even though his fighting spirit is low.
When you press the control pad (down), Godzilla goes onto the defensive. Pressing the control pad (down) and holding it increases Godzilla's defensive force. The enemy can not launch a major attack, but Godzilla's fighting spirit drops rapidly. The greater Godzilla's defensive force, the less damage he receives from an enemy body attack. Releasing the control pad (down) makes the defensive force 0.

*After being fused with cells from King Ghidorah, Godzilla's hit points will increase to 700.

Super Breath Attack [high fighting spirit]: This is a powerful breath-based attack released from Super Godzilla's mouth.
Nova Beam [very high fighting spirit]: His ultimate attack, Super Godzilla unleashes a beam of unimaginable power from his chest.
When you press the control pad (down), Super Godzilla goes onto the defensive. Pressing the control pad (down) and holding it increases Super Godzilla's defensive force.

Map Terrain:

The terrain that you walk on will affect the speed of which Godzilla moves, deep water takes longer to wade through for example. The overall map can cover as much as eight screens of the area maps usually displayed. The King of the Monsters can smash through mountains, buildings and towers. Enemies and items are also represented on the map, although enemies are usually hidden until Godzilla is close to them. Beat the Mother UFO and you will eliminate all the UFOs for that level.

  Godzilla Point: Position of Godzilla under control of the player.
  Monster Point: Position of the enemy monster. When the Godzilla point contacts the monster point, the game enters battle mode.
  Urban Districts: Godzilla walks right through built-up areas.
  Flatlands: Godzilla walks right through these undeveloped areas.
  Tall Building District: Godzilla can pass through these districts, but since he destroys buildings as he goes, he uses up energy.
  Mountains: Godzilla can pass through, but since he destroys mountains as he goes, he uses up energy.
  High-Voltage Electricity Belts: If Godzilla tries to pass through one of these belts, he is damaged, loses energy, and is bounced back.
  Steel Tower: If Godzilla tries to pass through a steel tower, he is damaged and loses energy, but he can destroy the tower.
  Seas / Rivers / Lakes: Moving through water takes Godzilla longer than moving through built-up areas or flat ground.
  Deep Seas / Deep Lakes: Moving through deep water takes Godzilla even longer than moving through shallow water.
  Skyscraper District: The beams controlling Godzilla can not reach him here, so he can not go through these areas.
  Rocky Mountains: The beams controlling Godzilla can not reach him here, so he can not go through these areas.
  Area Point: This is an important point in the stage. In Stage 3, it appears as an enemy base and in Stage 6 as Professor Ogata's research laboratory.
  Resupply Base: Godzilla recovers a certain amount of energy.
  Item Point: You can obtain useful items and information. There are a number of different items. Some can be used right on the spot, but others are carried into battle mode.
  Special Energy: This is the super-energy pack for turning Godzilla into Super Godzilla. It only appears in specific scenes.
  Enemy Land Mines: They are camouflaged, so they are not usually visible (are not shown on the map), but when Godzilla comes within one position of a land mind, it is displayed, so you can see it. If Godzilla steps on a land mine, he is damaged. Land mines are not pointed in a particular direction.
  Enemy Tank: They are camouflaged, so they are not usually visible (are not shown on the map), but when Godzilla comes within two positions of a tank, it is displayed facing the King of the Monsters. When an enemy tank is displayed, it can be stepped on and crushed.
  Enemy Missile: They are camouflaged, so they are not usually visible (are not shown on the map), but when Godzilla comes within three positions of a missile, it is displayed aimed at the King of the Monsters. When an enemy missile is displayed, it can be stepped on and crushed.
  Mother UFO: When you make contact with it, a battle starts. If you defeat it, the game returns to movement mode. There are also tiny UFOs that attack out of nowhere. If you run around them without destroying them, they keep chasing you.
