While en route to a charity game in Tokyo, basketball star Shaquille O'Neal (called "Shaq" for short) is drawn into an alternate dimension by a local man who believes only Shaq can save his grandson. Once there, he must fight a succession of 11 opponents, one at a time, with gameplay resembling Street Fighter 2 or Mortal Kombat.

The game's graphics used similar rotoscoping techniques (similar to those used in Flashback or Prince of Persia) making Shaq's 7'2" frame is represented. As well as the story mode, the player can play individual fights, either with 1 or 2 players, although one human player must always be Shaq. Shaq can jump a huge distance, although he struggles to block.

There exists an internet site which purpose it is to collect and destroy every cartridge of the game. Funnily enough, there is also a website dedicated to saving remaining copies. Both of them can be found in the related links section.


In the story mode of the SEGA Genesis version, you can travel to Yasko Mines named after the lead tester Michael Yasko.

Version differences

Oddly enough, the SNES version of this game had five less characters than the Genesis version: Leotsu, Nezu, Auroch, Colonel and Diesel are not in the game.
