Battletoads in Battlemaniacs is a version of the famous game series – Battletoads. This game is simple fighting and takes place around three main characters (Rash, Pimple, and Zitz) in the fight against the Dark Queen. During a vacation, Professor T. Bird invited Battletoads to Gyachung-La fortress in Tibet to explore a virtual reality game that Psicon Corporation developed (it was Total Reality Integrated Playing System – TRIPS). During a test run, The Gamescape, a pig jumped out of the system screen and arrested Michiko Tashoku (the leader’s daughter of the Psicon Group – Yuriko Tashoku). At that time, Zitz tried to rescue Michiko but that pig defeated. Later, it captured both Zitz and Michiko to return to The Gamescape. At the same time, Silas Volkmire (a Queen’s henchman) also appeared and announced plans to transform the real into the virtual world. To rescue his brother and save the world, Rash and Pimple agreed to enter the virtual world.
Firstly, you can control the Rash or Pimple. A new feature compared to the old versions is that each character has a unique battle system. Bringing many fighting skills will help the game get many attractive images for players to relax. There are six stages, and each offers many different challenges. For example, the 5th stage (Tracktor) will bring interesting races. Or stage 4 (Karnath’s Revenge) requires you to constantly move on the snake’s body to reach the final location and complete the challenge. Similar to other travel challenges, players have some lives at starting and can lose a life after unreasonable movement. To collect more lives and continue the mission, you have to participate in the extra play. There are two pieces to pass, which will appear at the end of the 2nd and 5th stages.
In each stage, you also participate in battles with tycoons (Rocky, Scuzz …). At the final stage, you will fight the Queen and Silas Volkmire. The game will end after you defeat the two bosses and watch many different video scenes. In which, it announces that the Queen will return to take revenge on the Battletoads in a new world invasion plan.
