The Ultimate Team
Following her crushing defeat at the hands of the Battletoads on
Ragnarok's World, the humiliated Dark Queen hightailed it to the outer reaches
of the Universe.
Months have passed...and the Queen's parting threat of revenge has
become a distant memory to Professor T. Bird and the Battletoads - Zitz, Rash
However, when a mysterious evergy beam form outer space renders Earth's
military might powerless, and a city-sized spaceship called the Colossus smashes
out of the moon, the Professor knows it has to be the Dark Queen trying her
latest galaxy-dominating plan.
He's right, of course, but what he doesn't realize is that
the shady lady's taking no chances this time, and she's cunningly teamed up
with the equally shady Shadow Boss! This means that the battletoads will not
only have to fight the Queen and her sidekicks, General Slaughter, Big Blag
and Robo-Manus - but Abobo and Roper, the Shadow Boss's minions, as well!
So, thats how it stands 'toads: the Dark Queen's got herself some
serious back-up and now she's comin' to take over you Earth - what're ya gonna
do about it?
First of all, you're gonna get the sides EVEN! Those terrific twins,
Billy and Jimmy Lee, otherwise known as the Double Dragons, are just rarin'
to get in on the action, 'specially since the Shadow boss is their archest of
After picking up the Dragons in the Batlecopter, it's time to play
intercept the mighty Colossus. Now's the time to get MAD n' BAD, as you begin
your epic quest to save Earth from the bad guys. It's not gonna be easy,
team -- the Colossus is a BIG ship and there's bound to be a whole ton of
trouble waiting within its neutron-shields. And with trouble, comes questions:
will the team -up between the 'toads and the dragons be tight enough to defeat
the dark hordes? And if so, will the Dark Queen and the Shadow Boss hang
around long enough for you to settle the score?
There's only one way to find out, os pick up that controller and play

How To Play
As the battle copter swoops low over the Colossus, the Battletoads and
the Dragons leap out onto the tail of the spaceship and your Earth-saving epic
Don't expect the red-carpet treatment, 'cuz the Shadow Boss and the
Dark Queen will have their own personal way of welcoming you. After you fight
your way across the tail, it's onto the corridors where the action gets faster.
This is followed by a trip into the bowels of the ship, then a shoot-out against
the awsome arsenal of the Colossus itself
Defeat the Colossus and you're faced with a race against time on a missle
heading for Earth -intent on destroying it! Defuse the wargead and the missle
crash lands, setting up the final showdown with the gruesome twosome.
But gettin' to 'em ain't gonna be a pushover -- no way! Each of the
levels are packed with beastly baddies and lethal objects - each more horrendous
than the last!
Baddies are the combined armies of the Dark Queen and the Shadow Boss.
From the spineless Shadow Marines to the mighty monstrous muscle of Abobo and
Big Blag, they're all gonna try to stop you!
Obstacles are a multitude of stationary and moving objests, always very dangerous
and often fatal to the touch. These are hidd throughout the levels, waiting to
catch unwary dragons and 'toads completly off guard.
To deal with these evil hordes, the 'toads have an awsome arsenal of
Smash Hits at their disposal, while the Dragons can call upon their equally
impressive array of Dragon Force Techniques. Each gives the user incredible
attacking combinations, including kicks, punches, stamps, throws and much more!
In addition, you'll find that certain objects can be picked up as weapons, so
don't hesitate to use 'em should the situation arise!
But the bad guys aren't gonna stand there and let you punch their lights
out, are they? Of course not, they're rough
n' tough and love a good fight, and if your player falls short, its's a one-way
ticket t othe ground - 'cuz cach 'toad and Dragon has a livited lifespan.
Most of the action takes place on foot, but certain areas demand expert
driving skills. There's the 'toads' favorite Speeder bike, plus the use of a
high-speed heavily armored Space Pod.
When you finally battle your way down to planet Earth, the real challenge
begins. You must venture into the dingy darkness of a basement where the Shadow
Boss lurks. Then it's into the dark Queen's spaceship, where a life or death
struggle begins to determine the future of the Earth.
