Innumerable arcade games were released in the 80’s. Many of these games were simple with no storyline while some of them were innovative games with interesting storylines and plots. These storylines helped in making the games addictive and enjoyable to play.
Altered Beast™ is a 1988 beat ‘em up arcade game. The storyline of the game is set in Ancient Greece, and follows a “Centurion” who is resurrected by Zeus to rescue his daughter Athena. To do so the centurion is given the ability to turn into beasts such as a werewolf with usage of power-ups.
The gameplay involves controlling the centurion, fighting “undead” creatures and monsters in a setting resembling ancient Greece. There are five levels: a graveyard, the Underworld, a cavern, Neff’s palace, and the city of Dis. One of the enemies, a white two-headed wolf upon defeat releases a Spirit Ball, a power orb which increases the strength and size of the player character. Three orbs turn the centurion into a beast, which in the original version were a werewolf, a thunder were-dragon, a were-bear, a were-tiger, and the more powerful golden werewolf.
A Roman centurion who had died in battle is resurrected from the dead by Zeus, who orders the warrior to save his daughter, Athena, from a Demon God called Neff in the Underworld. To be able to withstand the perils, the warrior gets the ability to absorb spirit balls. After the centurion arrives in Dis, he faces Neff himself, who becomes a rhinoceros monster. After he is defeated, a blue bird comes out of the ground and transforms back to Athena.
After using the Spirit Ball, the character transforms into a beast. Each beast has its own abilities, such as the dragon’s flight and lightning, and the bear’s ability to petrify. After becoming the beast, the character can face the end-level boss, which upon defeat causes Neff to appear and remove the transformation orbs.
The game ends when the player loses all his or her lives or when he or she rescues Athena in the last level.
