Gamera the Guardian of the Universe (ガメラ大怪獣空中決戦,   Gamera: Daikaijū Kūchū Kessen, lit. Gamera: Giant Monster Midair Battle) is a Gamera game for the original Game Boy. It was released to coincide with the movie of the same title, on March 3, 1995. It features compatibility with the Super Game Boy. The game was only released in Japanese, but a partial English fan translation by TransBRC was distributed online in 1999.[1] A second complete English fan translation was released by Stardust Crusaders on January 31, 2022.[2]

Gameplay

The game is essentially a turn-based battler, in a similar vein to the Pokémon games for the same console. Its battle system is similar to that of an RPG game, but other than that, the similarities end there.

Characters can position themselves in four different areas of the arena, giving access to new attacks and changing the effectiveness of others. Most of the attacks rely on button combos, but the game provides a list of combos for the more inexperienced player.

Gamera's enemies are Gyaos, Guiron and Viras. Eventually, the game's final battle pits Gamera against a clone of himself.

The game features a multiplayer mode that lets players take turns battling each other on the same device as any of the game's four characters.
