Gojira-kun (ゴジラくん,   Gojirakun, lit. Mr. Godzilla) is a 1985 video game developed by Toho for the MSX. The game is notable for featuring chibi versions of the Godzilla monsters, in a similar manner to Bandai's Godzilland merchandise line. Compile developed a sequel to this game, Gojira-kun: Kaiju Daikoshin, for the Nintendo Game Boy in 1990.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Game Mode[edit | edit source]

Godzilla can move left and right and climb up and down vines. There are three ways to defend yourself: punching your enemies, making them fall in water, or dropping rocks on them. The objective of every level is to destroy all the rocks. When the last rock is destroyed, a timer power-up will appear. If you grab it, all enemies will stop moving for a few seconds. Go through a door after getting the timer and you advance to the next level.

Edit Mode[edit | edit source]
