The story is a continuation of the previous work " The Great Battle IV ". Although the previous work was a science fiction military world view, this work is consistently western style. The basic game system is a side-view horizontal scroll action similar to the previous game, but there are many differences. In the previous work, the stage was captured with the character's unique movement ability, but in this work, in addition to this, there are many things that make full use of the objects installed on the stage. There is a tackle attack as an ability that all the characters have, and they can attack and move obstacles. The game also allows you to trample most enemies, use it as a jumping hill, or blow off stunned enemies with a tackle to hit the enemy or break the wall to break the path. Each character has a different charge-type attack, but (with the exception of Ultraman) it can also be used as a movement ability.
In addition, some stages are gun battle stages where weapons are used to attack enemies at the back of the screen (systematically similar to jujube 's Wild Guns ). Move the character left and right to avoid the attack, and attack the gun sight according to the enemy. Emergency evasion, which can be avoided during shooting, can be used. The gun to use and the emergency avoidance method also differ depending on the character. In addition, there are places where you can play mini games during the stage, and you can get items such as life up and 1UP depending on the evaluation.
The operating characters are Loa, God Gundam , Kamen Rider BLACK RX , and Ultraman . At the start of the game, decide on one character to form the first pair with the basic character, Lore. Partners take turns in the middle of the story. In other words, the partner who accompanies the lower becomes the operating character (the lower and the partner can be replaced during single play, and each is operated during two-player play). Also, the scenario will vary slightly depending on the partner selected first.
