Godzilla and Mothra must fight their way through waves of alien invaders and terrible monsters.
This Godzilla game is rather good, but it has a fatal flaw. Mainly that of Mothra. In the game you alternate turns between Godzilla and Mothra on a kind of board. You land on an area and you fight through a screen of alien weaponry. There are also other monsters on this board and they take a turn as well. Mothra is just a bit weak and it just is not as fun fighting as her on a level and it just sucks to have to fight the other monsters as the moth. Godzilla on the other hand is a blast to fight with having a lot more attacks than Mothra, plus the radioactive breath. All Mothra seems to do is dust her enemies to death. There are a host of monsters from the Godzilla franchise to fight too as there is Gidorah, MechaGodzilla, Hedorah, and Gigan. Strangely absent from the game are Rodan, Anguris, and Megalon and the inclusion of say an octopus that I do not believe even appeared in a Godzilla movie other than say Final Wars which came out years later, and Baragon who is a Gamera villain makes the exclusion of these characters even more puzzling. They even have Baigon in this game, and Baigon is only famous for being the monster Mothra was initially going to fight in the movie Mothra versus Godzilla, but they replaced it with Godzilla as they thought Godzilla would be a better draw. So all in all a fun game, just needs work on the levels and Mothra's combat and it would have been super.
