Description

Godzilla, a gigantic creature from underneath the sea, has been both the bane and the savior of Earth. Godzilla's power is so feared that scientists have begun experimenting on it's DNA and creating artificial G-Cells of the monster's power. A group of aliens, named the Vortek decide to invade the Earth to take away G-Cells created using Godzilla's DNA. They do this by controlling various other gigantic monsters, who will battle amongst themselves. Only a monster with free-will would be able to destroy the Vortek's army and drive away the Vortek.

Godzilla: Save the Earth is a 3-D Fighting game, somewhat of a sequel to Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee.

Many monsters can even fly. Power-Ups can be found that restore health, restore energy, activate Rage mode and target the enemy for Air Strikes.

Trivia

Cut content

  • Titanosaurus, Biollante Hedorah, Varan, MechaGodzilla 74 and Godzilla 54 were all considered to be in the game. Titanosaurus was taken out because of a licensing issue. Biollante was taken out for political reasons for stemming blood from the bad blood between Atari and Pipeworks!
  • Gigan, Jet-Jaguar and Destroyah were all going to have the ability to fly. Gigan had alot of powerful moves so thats why he lost his ability to fly. Jet-Jaguar and Destroyah lost their ability to fly because it was to hard to control it.
  • Rodan was originally going to have a rail shooter level but it was to hard to string up together so it never made through.

Version differences

In the Japanese version of the game Baragons flame does 20% more damage than in the American version. MOGUERA and Godzilla 90's also had their moves do more damage.
