Altered Beast (Activision)
Rather good sideways scrolling beat-em-up converted from the Sega arcade. Sega arcade games usually made great conversions, and this is a fine little game. O.K. graphically it's not the prettiest thing ever, but game play wise it's a good chuckle. Shinobi could learn a lot about making a game playable from this one. The aim of the game is that you, a spirit, have been raised from the dead by some bearded chappy (Zeus apparently) to rescue his daughter. It's a bit difficult, but Mr A. Beasty can, with enough power ups morph into more powerful creatures that make the average enemy look like a five stone, shandy drinking, weakling.
