Godzilla (ゴジラくん 怪獣大行進,   Gojira-kun Kaijū Daikōshin, lit. Godzilla-kun: Great Monster March) is a 1990 video game developed by Compile for the Nintendo Game Boy, starring super-deformed versions of many famous monsters from the movies. It is a sequel to Gojira-kun, although this is not mentioned in the American and European releases of the game.

Plot

Japanese Version

Various monsters captured Godzilla's girlfriend, Bijira, and it is up to Godzilla to rescue her by travelling through a maze.

American Version

Evil monsters have kidnapped Minilla and hidden him in the maze known as Matrix. Godzilla sets out to make his way through Matrix and find his son.

Gameplay

Rather than being an action game, Godzilla is a puzzle title where Godzilla must climb up and down ladders trying to destroy all the boulders in each room before exits to other rooms will appear. Boulders can only be destroyed by punching them until they are in a position where another punch will not move them, whereupon they crumble.

Monsters

  • Godzilla - The only playable character.
  • Bijira - Godzilla's love interest. Bijira appears in the final room of the game, where she has been placed after being kidnapped by the other monsters. Bijira only appears in the Japanese version of the game.
  • Rodan - Rodan can fly around the room unhindered by obstacles. He will still die if he touches spikes.
  • Anguirus - Runs around the room, and speeds up when he's on the same level as Godzilla.
  • Baragon
  • Mechagodzilla
  • Hedorah - Can be pushed backward by Godzilla's punches, but cannot be hurt by them. Can only be killed by falling rocks.
  • King Ghidorah - Appears when Godzilla takes too long to clear a room. King Ghidorah is invincible.
  • Minilla - Appears on the box art, in the instruction book and on the cartridge. He also appears in the final level in the U.S. version.

“Are you f__kin' joking? Godzilla looks like the dragons from Bubble Bobble! You're goin' around climbing vines, pushing rocks, and hitting monsters with a boxing glove that Godzilla spits from his mouth. How could they do this to the king of the monsters?! They might as well have Godzilla in a clown suit jumping on a pogo stick. I'm not even gonna waste my time with this s__t. The best way to sum this up, is to recite a very famous quote from William Shakespeare. "F__k it!””


Try to guess where that’s from. XD
