Hecky mick! Someone's kidnapped Madonna! No, not THAT Madonna, stupid, but your girl - who unfortunately happens to be lumbered with the same moniker.

It's not just a case of going up and asking for her back; oh, no sir, you've got to get out there and beat the shiny shades out of 'em! The whole thing is one big horizontally scrolling bash 'em up, with you taking on the rampaging hordes of psyched-out thugs single-handedly.

The Irem coin-op which this is taken from is nothing outstanding by any stretch of the imagination, but the audio-visual side of it was a touch on the nice side. The Sega version manages to retain most of the coin-op's graphics and sound, even if the sprites are a bit on the flickery side, and the spot FX a little ropey. The playability remains the same, however, which is the most important thing, so if you're after a not-too-taxing beat 'em up, have a look.
