Godzilla: The Series (video game)
Godzilla: The Series is a sidescrolling beat 'em up game developed by Crawfish Interactive and published by Crave for the Game Boy and Game Boy Color based on the animated television series of the same name. A sequel, Godzilla: The Series - Monster Wars, was released the following year.
Story[edit | edit source]
After a giant electrical-powered monster named the Crackler begins attacking New York City, Godzilla fights it it while Randy Hernandez looks into a way to stop it. Godzilla is able to defeat the Crackler once it is weakened by its unwitting creator finally addressing his emotions. Afterward, Niko Tatopoulos calls Major Hicks to tell him to stop attacking Godzilla, who had just saved the city, but Hicks reveals that no one had orders to attack Godzilla. He is chased into the water by a helicopter, and goes ashore on an island. On the island, Godzilla is attacked by more military vehicles and a population of Giant Mutant Bees, and eventually fights their Queen. After defeating the Mutant Bees, H.E.A.T. notices that military assets are still attacking Godzilla, and they decide to continue facing them to get to their source. As Godzilla continues, he was met with more military forces and Cyber Flies before facing an enormous tank. After that, H.E.A.T. begins to investigate tar on a beach that they believe to be linked to the disappearance of several swimmers. They are then attacked by a Mutant Giant Squid, which Godzilla defeats before more attack along with the military. Eventually they come upon some squids that are not charred from Godzilla's fireballs, but encased in the digestive tar they had found earlier. Before they can ponder for too long as to what was really creating the tar, Crustaceous Rex surfaces and attacks Godzilla. While it is capable of using its tar to immobilize Godzilla, the King of the Monsters is able to defeat it. After noticing that Godzilla was acting very hyperactive, H.E.A.T. is contacted by Cameron Winter, who accuses them of trespassing before admitting that he was behind the odd military attacks against Godzilla in order to test his Solstice Technologies weapons, and that he was using a machine to control Godzilla. N.I.G.E.L. is able to dismantle it, and Godzilla advances on the island and defeats updated versions of the Solstice Helicopter and Solstice Tank. Godzilla then reaches the Solstice Industries facility on the island and destroys it. With the mystery of who was attacking Godzilla behind them, H.E.A.T. and Godzilla head back to New York City.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Godzilla steps automatically from left to right as waves of enemies approach and attack. Godzilla can expel "Fire Balls" by pressing the A button as his primary attack, and performs a tail whip with the B button. Pressing left on the control pad allows Godzilla to block attacks, but doing so drains a "Guard" meter, which will replenish itself when his block is lowered. Due to the lack of an internal save battery in the cartridge itself, progression in the game is done by entering passwords unlocked at the end of levels. The passwords can be entered on the home screen to access levels without having to replay the game up to that point.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Despite the box being marketed as a Game Boy Color title, the black color of the cartridge casing, as well as its being shaped the same way as classic Game Boy carts made it playable on both systems, but with colors only being visible on the color system.
- In the final line of dialogue in the game, Cameron Winter is erroneously referred to as "Cameron Winters."
