SGX - Madou King Granzort

Description

Madou King Granzort is a game made to demonstrate the graphical prowess of the SuperGrafx, a new model of the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine that was backwards compatible with its game library. It featured four times the PCE's RAM, two scrolling background layers, two sprite layers, and six audio channels with an additional ADPCM channel when the CD-ROM peripheral is attached.
The game itself is based on a mecha anime series of the same name. Granzort is a Madou King robot summoned by a boy named Daichi to stop the evil Jadou Clan from taking over both Earth and the moon. There are three colors of robots, representing Earth, Wind, and Fire Water, all of which can fly for a limited time, shoot enemy monsters or bounce on their heads to defeat them.
