Mazinger Z (マジンガーZ?) is a Super Famicom video game that was released in 1993 for an exclusively Japanese audience.

Summary[edit]

Dr. Hell's robot army has destroyed Tokyo, and now only Kouji Kabuto, and the giant robot Mazinger Z, can stop them from taking over the entire world.[4] Animated cutscenes between levels tell the story of the game.[4] The Mazinger Z comes with a full armory of anti-robot weaponry, from super-powered karate moves to missiles, Breast Fire, and its signature Rocket Punch.[4] Special moves deplete a regenerating energy meter, while Rocket Punches can be performed at any time. However, Mazinger will be unable to punch until its arms return.[4] Each level contains several varieties of enemies, all of them from the show and unique to each level, that must be defeated to progress.[4] Some enemy robots will fire projectiles from a distance while others will rush in attempt to grapple the Mazinger.[4] Sometimes, more than one enemy must be fought at once.[4]

At the end of each level is a fight with a stronger boss robot with more dangerous attacks.[4] The player is given six continues to complete the entire game before having to start over again.
