Description

Become a giant monster and destroy a small town in this early 3D "toy version of monster movie". You can choose your creature from four candidates: reptilian Googelon, bird-like Flutter, mechanical Techs or chemical The Vapour. Each creature has its own weapon, some are better at traversing difficult terrain, some are good at regenerating energy - which decreases not only when the monster is hit, but when it attacks as well. The merits and drawbacks of different creatures are not balanced at all: Flutter is quick, can fly over almost everything and has the best regeneration capabilities, so he's the champion here.

As time passes, army forces - tanks armed with different weaponry, choppers and aircraft - start to pour into the city, and the monster will have to avoid or destroy them (luring enemies into burning remains of buildings is also an option). Later, giant robots are thrown into the mix.

The game has no winning condition - it ends when the creature is dead.
