The setting – Earth, the future. The defense computer protecting the entire planet has been invaded by a constantly-mutating, evolving virus. Only one man, Colonel Scott O’Connor, has the courage to risk his life in an untested miracle weapon. Converted to raw data and transported into the circuits of the computer, Col. Scott’s molecular structure is transformed by the untested Image Transfer System. Into the circuits of the giant computer steps an unlikely superhero – the Quantum Fighter.
I know what you are thinking… Why Kabuki though? Why is someone very carefully crafted non-japanese name “Scott O’Connor” decided that his Quantum Fighter image is a kabuki actor? Some questions will never have answers. Maybe this story was augmented for the US audience.
This is an often overlooked action platform game with some pretty cool mechanics like hanging off platforms with his hands, several weapons which can be switched to on the fly. Enemies have interesting patterns and levels have verticality to keep things interesting. This is a great game for NES collectors and I highly recommend it.
