Day 51 – Altered Beast
One of my childhood favourites; Altered Beast, is now available on mobile thanks to SEGA Forever. SEGA Forever is a free and growing classic games collection of nearly every SEGA game ever released from every console era – Master System, Genesis/Mega Drive, Dreamcast, and more. Available on iOS and Android mobile devices. Click here to learn more. What a dream come true!
And it is just as difficult to master as it was when I was young. I couldn’t be more pleased. I suppose it is nostalgic that SEGA decided not to improve the graphics and retain the spitting image of the game in all its original, retro glory. I don’t mind this, but am curious, would an update to the graphics have ruined the game? I’m not sure. Retro gamers may disagree!
The gameplay itself is actually great ported to mobile. Risen from the grave to fight the terrors of Hades – you are the Altered Beast. Morph into killer predators using mystical power orbs, then claw, maul, and hack your way to the depths of hell to rescue Zeus’ daughter, Athena. Combat waves of demons, overcome grotesque boss battles, and tear the armies of the damned limb from limb! Occasionally you’ll find blue pigs that release little balls that power you up and make you stronger, once you receive 3 of these you change your form into a powerful monster and quickly find yourself fighting the boss! Oh yeah.
It’s a very difficult game, I’m already stuck on the second level boss. Don’t judge me, but I’ll be using walkthrough to see how I can hack my way and enjoy the game further.
