Godzilla Singular Point: Escape!! Radio Wave Monster Rodan! (ゴジラS.P 逃ゲロ！！電波怪獣ラドンダ！ is a Gojira Shingyura Pointo Nigero Denpa Kaijū Radon Da)Japanese web game tie-in for the 2021 anime series Godzilla Singular Point. An endless runner, it involves the player controlling Yun and Haberu, Harvey, or Jet Jaguar through waves of kaiju and other obstacles. The game was released on April 15, 2021, and taken offline on May 1, though it can still be played through the Wayback Machine. It was relaunched and updated on May 27 to include additional monsters and will be playable until June 30.
Waves of Rodan and Kumonga attack the employees of Otaki Factory and their machines as they drive through a city. The player starts by steering Yun and Haberu on their Gyro Canopy Tandem 2. Pill-shaped power-ups will periodically appear, flashing yellow, red, and blue. The player will turn into Harvey if they drive into the pill when it is yellow, Jet Jaguar if it is red, and back into the Gyro Canopy Tandem 2 if it is blue. Points accumulate through continued survival and swatting monsters; the number of monsters they evade is also noted. In the updated version, all monsters will count for points and will add to the evade counter.
The Rodan vary in both size (small, medium, large) and color (bright, dull). The large Rodan can release multiple small Rodan from their bodies before charging forward themselves. Bright Rodan will simply move in a straight line from the top of the screen to the bottom (aside from the large variants, who will move backwards when unleashing their spawn), while dull Rodan will move diagonally towards the space where the player was located when each monster began its charge.
After wave 10, small flying Hanenga, faster than any adult Rodan, will appear. Kumonga appear a wave later, creating lines of web that must be avoided. On wave 12, Anguirus will run from the bottom of the screen to the top. He will shoot small spikes in a radius which will kill the player if touched. While Salunga sprites exist in the game's code, it is unknown if or how he can be encountered in the game.
The player starts with two lives (translating to three chances); if they make contact with a parked vehicle, sign post, or certain monsters, they will lose one life and restart the wave as the Gyro Canopy Tandem 2. The motorcycle has no resistances against monsters, while Harvey and Jet Jaguar are immune to certain types. Harvey will swat away small bright Rodan, while Jet Jaguar can dispatch Hanenga and all small and medium-sized Rodan. The game ends when the player loses all their lives, at which point they will be given the option to Tweet their score.
In the original version of the game, the only monster the player encountered was Rodan, and Jet Jaguar could be destroyed by dull medium-sized Rodan.
Weapons, vehicles and races
- In early screenshots for the updated version, Kumonga's webs were shown to be simple straight, white lines. In the official release, they are sqiggles and not straight, though they are still white.
