Mazinger Z (video game)
Mazinger Z (マジンガーZ) is a 1993 Japanese Super Famicom video game.
Animated cutscenes between levels tell the story of the game. 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. 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. Each level contains several varieties of enemies, all of them from the show and unique to each level, that must be defeated to progress. Some enemy robots will fire projectiles from a distance while others will rush in attempt to grapple the Mazinger. Sometimes, more than one enemy must be fought at once.
The game was released on July 25, 1993.
Next Generation reviewed the arcade version of the game, rating it three stars out of five, and stated that "For those Shogun Warrior fans, this game is fantastic, for everyone else, it's OK." Famitsu gave it a score of 17 out of 40.
