|From the intro|
In the early part of the 20th century, a group of evil poachers recklessly hunted animals nearly to the point of extinction.Unlike most useless rescued hostages in video games, freed animals return the favor as lions maul their captors, elephants stomp poachers to bits and cute baby jungle cats ferociously stampede the unsuspecting ankles of rotten nogoodniks with deadly results.
The character names on this page come from Taito's Genesis/Mega Drive port of the game. The names of the enemies, except for the final boss, appear in the manual. The storyline in the manual goes into further detail by saying that the game takes place in 1998 (ignoring the "early part of the 20th century" bit of the arcade and Genesis intro) and says that the action starts in Machanga, the name of both a district and town in Mozambique.
