(CD Denjin Rockabilly Tengoku)

CD Denjin Rockabilly Tengoku is a side scrolling shooter by Red and published by Hudson Soft, sequel to PC Denjin - Punkic Cyborgs originally released on HuCard in 1992. The futuristic version of King Droll has once again decided to take over the world and Genhead, our beloved robotic and big-headed super hero, seems to be the only one courageous enough to dethrone him and his gang. The game offers an even greater amount of wacky levels and a vast array of hilarious enemies all portrayed in a comedic and unique Rockabilly & Karaoke twist. CD Denjin features a grand total of seven stages and the game allows players to choose the order in which they want to tackle the first four levels. Our bold friend comes equipped with a modest laser blaster that can be powered up to five levels which ultimately turns him into a mean and vile war machine. But the most feared weapons in his arsenal are his blaster-boots (the ultimate technique to dispose of enemies sitting right behind him) and the poo-poo smart bombs that he can charge up and release at will. Although they now look different, Genhead's wacky and sunglass-wearing friends are still around and they all gladly help him to achieve victory - there is a total of seven friends from a tiny fish, an helicopter to a curious flying satellite or a weird looking microphone. This time around, however, they are closely related to the visited areas and eventually join forces with our bald hero when rescued. Genhead has the incredibly ability to merge with them as well and gain rather unusual special abilities - he can turn into a Sushi-chef and fire powerful waves of deadly sushis at his enemies or melt down their brains with evil songs and sound waves.
