Super Godzilla is a 1993 video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System developed by Advance Communication Company.

Unlike other games of the era, Super Godzilla is not a straight action game. Instead, the player must guide the famed monster into the different levels by pressing the adequate button in the appropriate place. The game is split in two screens: the top one shows the actions Godzilla is making at the moment, while the bottom one shows his location on the current level. When Godzilla finds a monster to battle, the game switches into a standard side-view fighting segment. This game is known by having Bagan, a monster that was to have a chance to fight Godzilla in one of his movies, but was never seen again after this.

Story

Super Godzilla Title Screen
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. 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.

As the game goes on, Godzilla fights and kills all of the aliens' monsters. After defeating their final monster, Bagan, he returns to the ocean. The human characters note that even though Godzilla saved them, he may yet destroy them in the future.

Gameplay

  • Use a wide variety of Items to help beat monsters.
  • Godzilla can smash through mountains, buildings and Towers, but this causes damage for no reason.
  • Beat the Mother Ship and you will eliminate all the UFO's for that round of the game.
  • Each level is timed, and if you do not finish it in that time you will fail the level.
  • You can only hold 4 Colored orbs at a time, which can only be used in battle mode.
  • The terrain that you walk on will affect the speed of which Godzilla moves (deep water takes a great deal of time to wade through).

Monsters

Playable

  • Godzilla - Defender of Japan, the monster that once destroyed civilization became humanity's only hope for survival. In his quest to rid the Earth of its aggressors, Godzilla was aided by a small band of humans that controlled the King of the Monsters as he faced the horrors beyond a thousand stars.
  • Super Godzilla - After King Ghidorah was resurrected as Mecha-King Ghidorah, the human characters determined that Godzilla must increase in power, and so Godzilla had to seek out the 3 capsules of Super S energy, only then would the reptilian creature transform into the godly stature of Super Godzilla. After defeating Mecha-King Ghidorah, Bagan, the ultimate enemy monster of the game appeared and Godzilla again changed into Super Godzilla in order to combat him.

Non-Playable

  • King Ghidorah - The boss of the first stage. King Ghidorah attacks by either firing one, two, or three of his gravity bolts. The more he uses the more damage the attack does. Being the first boss of the game, King Ghidorah is viewed the easiest. It's attacks are very weak, it has less health then Godzilla.
  • MechaGodzilla - The boss of the second stage. In the American version, MechaGodzilla 1 (initially disguised as a fake Godzilla that only takes one hit to defeat) is fought, while in the Japanese version, MechaGodzilla 2 is fought instead. Both versions are mostly the same, the only difference being that MechaGodzilla 2 uses a mouth laser instead of finger missiles (its laser does more damage), and has attack of firing rockets form its shoulders, and MechaGodzilla 1's triple slam attack does sightly more damage then MechaGodzilla 2's. Both versions have an eye-beam attack. MechaGodzilla 1 has a force field attack that will block Godzilla's standard fire breath attack, which will be followed by a large missile firing out of his chest. MechaGodzilla 2, however, will absorb Godzilla's atomic breath and reflect it back (which is odd as in the film, MechaGodzilla 2 uses his Plasma Grenade after absorbing Godzilla's atomic breath). A strong fire breath attack will pierce his shield and cause considerable damage. Mechagodzilla's attacks aren't particularly strong compared to later bosses, and it's health is slightly less then King Ghidorah's, but it can be hard to hit because it often slams into Godzilla. Even though it's only the second boss battle, it's viewed as an extremely hard battle.
  • Biollante - The boss of the the third stage. Initially has vines that will keep Godzilla from attacking it. Biollante attacks with its vine tentacles, a spray of acid (it's most damaging attack), and will not be damaged by Godzilla's body slam and using it will cause to counter with one of its own, which does less damage then the acid spray but more then the vine attack. Biollante's is the the third highest of the boss monsters.
  • Battra - The boss of the fourth stage. Battra can only be hit by Godzilla's more powerful fire breath attack. Fortunately, Battra only requires about five hits to kill. It will either attack by ramming Godzilla or by firing its eye beams (the dive bomb does more damage). After it's killed, another one will appear in an undeveloped state in the stage. If the player is quick enough, they will be able to reach and kill it without a battle. If not, they will have to fight another Battra, which identical to the first one except it has a little less health.
  • Mecha-King Ghidorah - The boss of the fifth stage. It's essentially a far more powerful and much harder version of King Ghidorah from the first stage, with the same attacks, but they inflict far more damage, and has far more health, the second highest health next to Bagan. Mecha-King Ghidorah has one additional attack it can use, which is tasers, which is it's strongest attack. Viewed as a extremely hard fight if fought normally. However, the player has the option of becoming Super Godzilla before the battle, which makes the fight one of the easier ones in the game. Mecha-King Ghidorah's attacks inflict considerably less damage to Super Godzilla, who has more health Mecha-King Ghidorah. Super Godzilla's attack will also inflict far more damage than Godzilla, being able to at the most take off a 1/4 of his health with one hit.
  • Bagan - The final boss. If the player chose to fight Mecha-King Ghidorah as Super Godzilla, then Godzilla will start of this battle as normal Godzilla. Bagan is generally seen as impossible as normal Godzilla since Godzilla's attacks will hardly inflict any damage (and Bagan has the most health of any monster in the game), and many do no damage, while Bagan's attacks (in order of weakest to strongest, a claw slash, a barrage of white diamond like stars, and white plasma beam) do more damage then any other monsters. As Super Godzilla, he's still viewed as a hard, but beatable battle, since Super Godzilla and Bagan have the same health and their attacks inflict roughly the same damage.

Reception

While praise was given to the story and graphics, the game did not get very good reviews. A common complaint among players is that the computer is given unfair advantages; it can make decisions much faster than an average player ever could, and will oftentimes spam attacks. Additionally, if the player gets three game overs, they will have to start from the very beginning with no way to try again, as the game lacks a password system.

Trivia

  • Super Godzilla's physical appearance is the direct inspiration for SpaceGodzilla, and the space monster's physical form is an almost direct duplication of Super Godzilla's appearance from the game with only minor, mostly cosmetic changes.
