released only in Japan
. The game itself stars various Konami created characters as well as Mikey (from The Goonies
) and King Kong
, who appeared in two Konami-produced, movie-based games.
The player starts the game as Konami Man, and can switch between Konami Man and Konami Girl. If two players are gaming, then one will play as Konami Man and the other as Konami Girl. Both players are not able to switch characters until they rescue at least one character from one of the six levels. The player must play through six different selectable levels that take place in different Konami games and save that game's star character with a key who the player can then play as. Each character has different abilities to begin with as well as ones they can eventually gain. The player ventures through these first six levels in a sort on non-linear fashion with gameplay very similar to the original Castlevania
games. After these stages are completed, the player plays through a scrolling space shooter stage and then a linear final stage.
The player will also regularly visit the lab of Dr. Cinnamon (from the Twinbee
series), who will give the player the game's character profiles and refill energy when needed. Through his lab, the player can also talk to Dr. Spice, Dr. Cinnamon's brother, who can resurrect any defeated characters at the cost of 100 bullets... Read More
