Sailor Moon screenshots:
Sailor Moon game is based on the popular manga/anime series of the same name. The heroine of the series is a 14-year-old schoolgirl named Serena (Usagi in the Japanese version). One day she encounters a magical talking cat named Luna, who tells her she has been chosen to be a Sailor Moon fighter, to find the lost Princess of the Moon Kingdom and to fight the forces of darkness lead by the evil Queen Beryl.
This adaptation of the story is a beat-'em-up game. You can control either Serena herself or one of her Sailor Moon companions. Each girl has different strengths and special attacks. You advance in the game by moving on a platform and defeating the enemies you encounter. You can't move on if you haven't defeated all the enemies that keep coming at you.
Sailor Moon video:
Sailor Moon is a normal everyday 14 year old Japanese school girl called Serena, who is given a mission by a talking cat called Luna to look for the lost Moon Princess and fight evil. Sailor Moon discovers other Sailor Scouts to aid her in her quest as well as another talking cat called Artemis. They are trying to find Princess Serenity who ruled the peaceful Moon Kingdom many thousands of years ago. Princess Serenity was lost when she sacrificed herself to fight of the evil forces of the Dark Kingdom. She sent all of her subjects forward in time to the present day. Unfortunately Dark Generals from the Negaverse have also gone to the present day and are stealing life energy from ordinary people and trying to find the Silver Crystal to go back and take over the Moon Kingdom. In charge of the DarK Forces is the evil Queen Beryl and it is she whom you must ultimately defeat.
Each character has special moves based on the planet powers, ie. Jupiter uses thunder type moves, Mars use Fire etc Although Sailor Moon is the real powerhouse of the bunch with her tiara chucking and whirlwind flinging. As you progress, Luna (or maybe Artemis) the cats appear in a little window and shout at you. But its all in Japanese so I have no idea what they are saying. I'm pretty sure they take on bosses from the game itself like Jadeite, Emerald and Queen Beyrl herself. But I kind of lost the plot after a while. I was just having a fine time beating up opponents in that hypnotic state side scrolling beat 'em ups tend to send you into.
The graphics and sound are great as well. The sprites are big and bold. They look like the Anime characters they are based on, with lots of expression and they move smoothly as well. The actual contact of the blows looks a bit wussy, still its fun seeing big tough Dark Generals looking like they are being kissed to death! The music is the usual Japanese, high-speed, mentalist lift music and is thus, perfect for the game.
