Altered Beast (SEGA Genesis)
WELCOME TO YOUR DOOM
 I've had this classic Genesis game lying around for two years now, but this was my first serious attempt at playing it. The default difficulty of 3 POWER and 3 PLAYER (lives) and no continues is a bit on the harsh side, so I used B+Start at the title screen to set 5 POWER and 5 PLAYER. In my first game, I reached level 4/5. The bosses of level 2 and 3 are very exploitable. For the level 2 eye melon thing, I just parked my Dragon Beast in front of its face and mashed the lightning attack. For the level 3 snail thing, I jumped my Bear Beast (which is adorable, by the way) around inside it. I died on level 4 and never saw the Cat Beast.
 Oh, and you can continue from the level you reached by pressing A+Start on the title screen. That should make things easier.
 OK, I started over with default settings and just using A+Start to continue. I reached level 3 on my first run.
 Reached the final level.
 A humanoid rhino?
 completed the game on Normal (1/3) difficulty.
 The rhino dude is ridiculously easy. Crouch and punch. That's all. :)
