At the end of the second millenium, the world was devastated by a nuclear explosion... On this planet ruled by fear, Kenshiro fights to find Yuria, his fiancee kidnapped by Shin.
The game action takes place on the touch screen, allowing you to look. On the other hand, on the top screen shows the mapping and the typical Doom bar where you view the states of your character.

As sprites are bigger in order to respect original comic/Tv animation, heads may be cut by the ceilings on OpenGL port:
- POSS character size requires a minimum value of 88 from floor to ceiling.
- SARG character size requires a minimum value of 104 from floor to ceiling.
It is advised not to play in Fast Monster mode as SARG caracter didn't have a speed matching with the original TV animation one.
