Battletoads in Battlemaniacs is a game released by Tradewest in 1993 for the Super NES. It is a sequel to Battletoads.

Story

The story opens with the 'Toads visiting the Gyachung-La fortress in Northern Tibet, where the Psicone Corporation is demoing their new virtual reality game system, TRIPS. Suddenly, a pig lackey working for the evil Dark Queen and her partner Silas Volkmire, leaps out of the system and kidnaps Michiko Tashoku (daughter of Psicone Corporation's CEO, Yuriko Tashoku) and Zitz. Now the remaining Battletoads must make chase into the Gamescape, rescue the two captives, and stop Volkmire and the Dark Queen from fulfilling their plans to control the world.

Gameplay

In this game of up to 2 players, you control Pimple or Rash. Both Battletoads have combos and moves to help them defeat their enemies. The artistic style is decidedly cartoony, with exaggerated weapons protruding from the 'Toads' limbs to deliver the coup de grace.

Ports

The game was ported in 1994 to the Sega Master System by Syrox Developments and was going to be published in Europe by Virgin Interactive with a stated July 1994 launch date. However, the European release was pulled out in the last moment by unknown reasons and with the game already having been reviewed by video game press in the United Kingdom.[1]

Some time later, Tec Toy made an agreement with Virgin Interactive and released the Master System port in Brazil, despite not being completely finished due to its sudden European cancellation. This release is playable and can be completed, but there are minor problems with it like some graphical glitches, invisible and fatal collisions in the turbo tunnel level, an unfinished introduction scene, some reversed briefing scenes, and some stages repeating previous music tracks (not fitting with the original SNES title) or even lacking background music at all.

Story

Zitz and the daughter of Psicone Industries' CEO have been kidnapped and Rash and Pimple must save them from the Dark Queen.

In the end, after eliminating the Dark Queen, the player must get rid of her spaceship.

Gameplay

This version has improved graphics and nice effects: the lava in the first stage, the perspective of the Clinger Winger-like stage (it uses SNES advanced use of several layers), the perspective of the motorcycle stage, among others. It has better sound and music, according to some players.

It resembles the first Battletoads more than the second game: it has a motorcycle, a rat race, a Clinger-Winger-like level, a vulture pit and a tower. It is hard but not as hard as the first game, because this one has fewer levels. It does not have any warp levels for this reason. It also had two bonus levels.

It is a little more violent than previous games. Pimple attacks include hitting with a junk and stomping the enemies. The sound is superior to its predecessors.
