Cosmic Carnage is a one-on-one fighting game set in outer space. The story begins as a prison barge is hijacked by it's cargo in an escape attempt. The resulting chaos caused the barge to crash into a military cruiser. The impact caused extensive damage to both ships. There were only 8 survivors, 4 from each ship. What's worse, there's only one escape pod. You control one of the 8 survivors, and have to finish off all the others to escape with your life.

The gameplay in Cosmic Carnage is similar to Street Fighter 2, but with a much slower pace. Some of the fighters can be customized with different armor combinations, allowing them access to different special moves.

Version differences

Cyber Brawl, the Japanese version of the game, contains three human soldier characters in place of the US version's aliens. Apparently, these characters were made aliens for the US release to avoid complaints of graphic violence.
