Emulated in MAME !
[CONSOLE] NEC PC-Engine Game
Mesopotamia © 1991 Atlus Company, Limited.
Mesopotamia is an original and cute platform game by Atlus. Player controls a weird looking creature that moves by sticking one of its end to walls, in a way similar to a caterpillar, or more precisely like those metallic string toys that can go down the stairs. The game is based on Zodiacal elements and counts twelve big stages with a nasty boss at the end of each of them. Many other weird creatures are also scattered around each maze and are there to stop the player. The caterpillar-like creature has an extra ring in its middle which can fire back at those annoying things. To increase the challenge a little, the player mush reach the exit of each time within a time limit. When destroyed, some enemies drop special power-ups, like extra life, shields, the priceless super-speed or bouncing-shots options.
