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


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.
