Juuouki © 1989 NEC Avenue, Limited.

The adaptation of the famous arcade game released by Sega. Zeus' daughter, the beautiful goddess Athena, has been abducted by the cruel Lord of the Underworld. The hero of the game is brought back to life from the dead to defeat the approaching army of zombies and monsters. To fulfil his mission, has been granted amazing powers - the main one being the ability to transform into powerful mythical beasts. Juuouki is a horizontal action game - the action first takes place in a grave yard but our hero soon travels through five large areas, from dark caves to creepy swamps. Power orbs can be picked up along the way by killing two-headed white wolves. Once three orbs are collected, our character turns into a powerful beast. Each stage features a new transformation (which gets recycled in later levels) such as human-wolf, human-dragon or human-bear, and they all come with their own set of powers and special attacks. Once the 'beast-form' is reached, the Lord Of Underworld appears and casts a powerful spell which turns him into a huge creature that must be defeated to unlock the next area.
