Battletoads spun off a half-hour animated television special produced by DIC Animation City in an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (DiC would try this again later on when producing Street Sharks and Extreme Dinosaurs). Intended as the pilot for a full-fledged series, the special aired in syndication in the United States on the weekend of Thanksgiving 1992. It was never picked up for a series however, despite comic-style ads in GamePro magazine claiming otherwise.
Rash is a large, anthropomorphic toad-like creature with a very muscular build - despite this, he is still the smallest of the Battletoads. He has scaly, green skin with shades of yellow around his torso and face. He has bright blue eyes, warts around his shoulders and arms, and a big mouth full of white teeth. Each of his hands has four fingers, and he retains the amphibious webbed toes of a toad. He wears a pair of black sunglasses, spiked kneepads, and red bandannas around his elbows. Around his waist is the signature Battletoads belt emblazoned with their insignia. He also has a long, extendable toad tongue.
Battletoads directed and produced by Kent Butterworth is the best game when it comes to platform games. All you will have to do is to defeat the evil queen and rescue your kidnap partners, Princess angelica and Pimple. The game was originally released in 1991 for Nintendo entertainment system by Rear games.
When Toad found himself immured in a dank and noisome dungeon, and knew that all the grim darkness of a medieval fortress lay between him and the outer world of sunshine and well-metalled high roads where he had lately been so happy, disporting himself as if he had bought up every road in England, he flung himself at full length on the floor, and shed bitter tears, and abandoned himself to dark despair.
Battletoads has you playing as either Rash or Zitz to save your buddies Pimple and Princess Angelica from the dark queen. To save them you have to play through a variety of levels beating up anything what get's in your way. Sounds like a simple beat-'em-up doesn't it, well you'd be mistaken, Battletoads is famously remebered as being one of the hardest games of all-time. With extremely difficult levels,no save or password feature and only three times allowed to continue, it really was for the HARDCORE. To add insult to injury when you decide to play a two player game you can unintentionally kill your parter and lose lives. It's probably the only game in existance where playing with another player is harder than playing alone.
Vicious villains are a dime-a-dozen, but Dark Queen's ability to both taunt the 'toads and look sexy helps her helps her stand out amidst a sea of Shredder knockoffs and Cobra Commander wannabes. Her looks are a cross between Elvira and Dracula, and most of her in-game dialogue consists of profoundly un-clever puns from when she insults the 'toads between levels. And that hair! That beehive hairdo could hold enough honey to keep Winnie the Pooh satisfied. But, in a time where princesses and queens were there to be kidnapped, the Dark Queen turned the depiction of video game matriarchy on its head and boldly declared that she'd be the one doing the kidnapping. 153554b96e
