You were once a Roman Centurion, strong and brave. But you died long ago on the battlefield. The mighty Zeus, God of Thunder, has brought you back from the dead to save his daughter Athena from Neff, Lord of the Underworld. Collect two spirit balls by defeating the white three-headed wolves, and transform yourself into the different powerful forms of the Altered Beast. In human form you'll have the ability to punch and kick your enemies on the ground or in the air by leaping at them. Fearful of your superhuman powers Neff has sent a sinister horde of his own demons, monsters and other as-sorted creatures of the underworld to stop you.
If you succeed in surviving a round with these nasty brutes and change into one of the altered beasts, you'll grow too powerful for ordinary demons to defeat. Neff himself appears and sends one of his most fearful monstrosities to attack you. Defeating Neff and his different evil sidekicks uses all your energy and you alter back to human form, but move closer to your goal. You must survive four different chilling encounters with Neff's evil creatures and Neff himself in order to rescue Athena.
ProTip: When the title screen appears hold down the directional button diagonally, UP and LEFT, and press buttons 1 and 2 simultaneously. This gives you extra health on your life gauge.
Through the Graveyard
Green grass, tombstones, and crypts -- a peaceful cemetery scene? Far from it. Here the dead won't stay dead. To escape this nightmare, you'll have to kick or punch a few headless and horned zombies and assorted flying demons intent on swooping down to claw you into submission. Capture the first spirit ball and you receive greater strength and size. Your blows smash the demons with greater ease. The second spirit ball changes you into a ferocious, howling Werewolf. In this form you shoot fire balls, or become a flaming arrow, sizzling evil beasties and burning them up. Aggar himself confronts you at the end of the level. He is a grotesque being who cuts off his head, hurtles it at you, then grows a new one to throw!
To defeat Aggar stay close and shoot fire balls. Run away when heads are thrown
In this bone chilling scenario, you battle through a dark, dank cavern. You take on creeping, crawling creatures, called Chicken Stingers that whip their tails at you. Round Leeches try to cling to you, bite you and drain away your power. Watch for Rattle Tails, the giant snakes that pop up from the ground and slither down from the trees. As quickly as possible, alter yourself to the form of the Weredragon. Then you can fly, flash lightning and electrocute anything that touches your body with your protective shield. Becoming the Weredragon is your only chance zapping Octeyes, a pithy plant creature who tosses poisonous spores at you.
Stay about one body away from Octeyes and shoot directly at his eye. Use your energy field to protect you when thrown spores get too close.
The Fortress Bates
Breach the gates of Neff's underworld fortress and face a new horde of horrible demons. Cave Needles (giant mutated ground wasps) run along the ground and try to sting you. Hammer Demons attack from above, trying to smash you with their huge hammers. Zombies and demons appear from all directions as you get closer to Athena. Alter into a Weretiger and you'll have golden fire to blast your foes. Defeat them and you face Crocodile Wyrm, a terrible reptilian creature who flies and spits fire.
When fighting Crocodile Wyrm shoot him from underneath as he goes to the top of the screen. When the slimy lizard is low, jump over single fire balls and duck and shoot alter four are thrown.
Your hair stands on end as you enter the stronghold of Neff, Lord of the Underwood, where skeletons and corpses stick up from the ground. Neff's lair is populated by the most evil brutes of all. You'll battle jump-kicking Dark Unicorns and swift Gory Goats. Jump over Saw Fish who'll slice you with their spines that are sharp as saw blades. Watch out for the clever Bad Boar who is smart, defensive, and difficult to destroy. In the end you face Neff himself, the final and toughest of your foes. He takes on demon form and it's a battle to the death. To defeat Neff you must take the form of the Golden Werewolf, the most powerful of the altered beasts. Triumph in this ultimate challenge and victory is yours!
To defeat Neff only shoot one fire ball at a time. Then jump up and over him when he charges.
Altered Beast is another great arcade translation for Sega owners! The excellent graphics and sounds, along with the exciting play make this game one of the hottest new titles for the Sega system. So go ahead, let Altered Beast bring out the savage beast in you!

You are the centurion warrior called from the grave to rescue the daughter of Zeus. By defeating enemies, players get "power up" atoms which give them the ability to transform into wolf man, dragon, bear man and tiger man; each with special supernatural powers.
Altered Beast is a video game released in 1988 by Sega, who was also the main developer. The game was ported to many platforms over the years, but was first released for Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. The release for Sega Master System came one year later, in the same timeframe as the PC version. The game was also released for iOS in 2010.
Altered Beast is a side scrolling beat ‘em up which allows the player to control a centurion who dies in a battle. The centurion has been resurrected to rescue Athena, Zeus’ daughter, from a Demon God called Neff. The player will encounter lots of demons over this platformer in his quest to save Athena. In order to save the kidnapped princess he needs to pass through several levels. The game takes place in the Ancient Greece.
The hero has to pick up power-ups during the levels. The power-ups are called “Spirit Balls” and will increase his strength and size. This will allow the player to transform into a superhuman in different stages. When three of them are collected, the player will transform into a beast with exceptional abilities.The hero will have to encounter a boss at the end of each level. The boss is the main antagonist of the game, Neff, but transformed in different forms.
The player’s ability to transform into different creatures was the main selling point of the game. Users enjoyed the control of the gameplay and rescuing Athena at the end of the game was the cherry on top.
There are five levels in the game. Graveyard is the first one, where Zeus resurrects the hero. The setting is a Roman-style graveyard. The second level is in the Underworld and the player can transform into the Weredragon here. The third level is the Cavern of Souls, which is a dark underground cave. The player can transform into the Werebear in this level. The fourth level is Neff’s place. The last level is the City of Dis, where Athena is kept captive. The hero can transform into Golden Werewolf, who is a powerful creature.
At the end of each level Neff transforms into a boss. First he is Aggar, then Octeyes, then Mouldy Snail and Crocodile Worm in the fourth level. In the last level he will not transform, the hero will just encounter Neff himself.
Altered Beast was a popular game back in the end of the 80s and the beginning of the 90s, when people had for the first time the chance to control a hero who can transform into other creatures. This feature was unique at that point. The game was later ported on Nintendo’s Virtual Console Wii and the version for Genesis was rated by GameSpot users with a 7.4 mark out of 10.
