Genocide 2 (or G2) is a side scrolling beat'em up by Bits/Zoom. It is also the sequel of Genocide, released for the PC-Engine, FM Towns and Sharp X68000 Japanese computers in 1989. The game takes place in 2280 and features the rogue unit Tracer Type 184 (codenamed Goliath), a highly sophisticated fighter mecha. The CONEX corporation is developing an unknown weapon and the bionic soldier Jeff Hazard, on board of his powerful robot-warrior, is sent to investigate the situation. Stages are vast and divided into short sub-areas. Those entire areas have to be cleaned up to move on. Understand here that every single enemy has to be defeated, in a traditional beat'em up way, to unlock the next area. Our robot's main weapon is a short plasma-saber which can be used to deadly strike his enemies. But the most interesting weapon is certainly Betty, a floating robot-sphere which follows our hero character everywhere he goes and fires at will at anything fool enough to get in its way. Sadly, Betty, like any secondary weapon in the game, needs energy. And she will eventually run out and need to recharge. As mentioned other secondary weapons are also available, including shields and laser guns.
Released on August 05, 1994 in Japan for 9800 Yen.
Genocide 2 was originally released for the Sharp X68000 and FM Towns computers. The game runs at a much higher resolution than the Super Famicom version and also has neat and detailed enemies. Animation is also really smooth with an amazing frame rate, and the stage's layout is different.
