Storyline

While escorting the fair Princess Angelica across the galaxy and back to her home, the Princess grows bored. To appease her, the biggest Battletoad, Pimple, takes her off the 'Toads' ship for a joyride in a small space cruiser. Unfortunately, this allows their deadly nemesis, the Dark Queen, to kidnap Princess Angelica, and in doing so she kidnaps Pimple too. The other two 'Toads, Rash and Zitz, are furious and vow to get their friend and the Princess back no matter how many obstacles they must face. Written by Master Sonic

Trivia

The Dark Queen is vulnerable from behind. The player can set up a rear strike by observing where she is when she comes out of her "tornado mode." When she ceases "tornado mode," she always faces the center of the screen. (Thus, if she comes out of it on the left side of the screen she faces right, and if she comes out on the right side she faces left.) See more »

They don't make 'em like this anymore...

Most games today are user friendly... they usually have undo-buttons, auto-aim features, guided tutorials and balloon-tips telling you what to do.

If you grew up with this new kind of games, "Battletoads in Ragnarock's World" (1991) will leave you wondering: This piece of software is the digital equivalent of a dragster car: Hard to control and not forgiving any mistakes. You press a wrong button, you die. You jump a little too early, you die even messier. Long story short: It takes *enormous* joypad-skills to beat this game. Without the slightest shadow of a doubt this is the most nervewreckingly difficult game I have ever played.

The graphics were top-notch when this game was released, but from today's point of view you're more likely to be revolted by the blurry 8-bit visuals. But who cares? You won't play this game for it's technical supremacy, but for the mere challenge it provides. The gameplay is an awkward mixture of a platform-beat'em up à la "Double Dragon" and 2d racing sequences of different kinds.(Those who ever played Battletoads will probably feel a slight wave of aggression rolling in, as they remember the ludicrously challenging racing parts...) Anyway, this is a rare gem among the 8-bit platformers and is well worth a look for those who like the atmosphere of retro-gaming and for those who think they could beat any game. This IS the hardest of the hard to master. You will probably not find another game which is as frustrating and as motivating at the same time. Don't believe me? Try!
