FORGOTTEN WORLDS is a one- to two-player simultaneous side-scrolling shooter made by CAPCOM CO., LTD. It was one of the first games to incorporate 360-degree aiming and shooting. This SEGA GENESIS version provides the same impact and intensity of the classic arcade game. The time: the 29th century. Without warning, warships broke through the sky, loaded with fiendish aliens. They rained down fire, bombs, missiles, and napalm, making it barren and inhospitable. Humanity was enslaved, and Earth became known as the Forgotten World. In a hidden place, a group of brave humans raised two male children in secret. They brought up the young men as warriors, training them for battle. The two warriors emerged as armed machines of might, strength, and super power—the Nameless Ones. Fight the hateful invaders as the powerful Nameless Ones! Collect Zenny to upgrade your weapons and satellite, and free the planet that was once called Earth.
