About The Game
Forgotten Worlds is a side-scrolling shooter, one of the first games to incorporate 360 degree aiming and shooting, a revolutionary feature at the time. And no need to go to the arcade to play - this Sega Mega Drive/Genesis version brings the game right into your home!
It is the 29th century. Years ago, without warning, warships broke through the sky, carrying fiendish aliens. They rained down fire, bombs, missiles and napalm, making the planet barren and inhospitable. Humanity was enslaved and Earth became known as the Forgotten World.

Take your place as the powerful Nameless Ones and fight the hateful invaders! Collect Zenny to upgrade your weapons and satellite, and free the planet that was once called "Earth".
