It's long ago and far away in a mythical land somewhere in the Far East. The Siamese-Twin Shiva, God of Destruction, is on the move and has cursed your village with some pretty gruesome evil spirits. Your good old buddy, Master Hu, is depressed because he hasn't been able to run the spirits out of town and has taken to the bottle. To save your village, and your friend Hu, you're going to set out to search through evil palaces and temples to find and destroy Shiva's four-armed incarnation. In a two-player game you can take Hu along for the ride. It might perk up his spirits. Along the way you'll have to collect special items such as the Flaming Key of Freedom, the Scrolls of Knowledge, and Living Ginseng. You'll have to complete ten worlds, each with nasty spirit bosses, before you come face to face with Shiva himself. It's a tough job but somebody's got to do it!
