About The Game

When noted 21st-century scientist Doc Yoshiyama fell in love with one of his creations, a "C-Life" artificial intelligence, he uploaded himself into his computer to be with her. Her program core and his DNA fused to create an entirely new entity. And so, Doc Yoshiyama's "son", Pulseman - half-human, half C-Life - was born. Unfortunately, Doc Yoshiyama's mind was twisted as he emerged back into real life, and he became the evil Doc Waruyama.

As Pulseman, you'll have to fight your way through 7 crazy stages and stop Doc Waruyama and his villainous Galaxy Gang! Pulseman has the ability to harness electricity as a weapon, which can even be used in the form of a rapid transport Voltecker attack.

Take Pulseman on his epic mission and find out why this classic title was regarded as a masterpiece of Sega Mega Drive game design!

In-game text will include some Japanese.
