A playthrough of Tradewest’s 1993 action game for the Super NES, Battletoads in Battlemaniacs.
This is am extremely impressive looking game with huge, well-animated sprites, sense of speed, and the general level of detail – just check out those reflections on the floor of the bonus stages.
I’ve always liked this game. It’s not anywhere near as original as the first game on the NES – most of these levels are slightly tweaked rehashes of those in the first game, but it does play well. I also have to say that I completely disagree with the seemingly popular opinion that this game is outrageously hard. It’s not a pushover and it does require a fair amount of memorization, but seriously- if you were able to beat the NES game, this is an absolute cakewalk by comparison. It seems that it might be the Battletoads’ genetic legacy to be regarded as a legendarily difficult, but this has nothing on the likes of Super Ghouls n Ghosts or the Super Star Wars games.
