DescriptionYou are a young boy with a baseball bat named Mark. On your way home from a baseball game, you encounter a monster named Bert. Bert needs your help in saving his planet from the evil monsters. You learn how to fuse with Bert and become a monster fighting gargoyle. You'll spend most of the game attacking bad guys by swinging your bat at them or volleying their fire.
This is a side scrolling adventure, similar in play to Super Mario Bros., but with monsters and skulls. The game itself is infamous for its outlandish quotes.

Cancelled Japanese releaseAlthough planned for release for Japan, this game was only released in North America. However, a prototype of this version of the game exists. Differences between the prototype version and the eventually released US version can be viewed here.
UncensoredThis is one of the few examples of a licensed NES game that somehow managed to slip under Nintendo's tight censorship protocol. Although the title screen for the US release was slightly altered (with green slime instead of blood), the game still featured plenty of gore, as evident in the second-half of the first level. The end is also particularly gruesome (not to mention bizarre). There is also blood drenched skeletons on the round start screens.
