As either Roddy or Cathy, make your way through four locations that include Forest, Ice, Wind, and Fire, and destroy the two bosses in these locations. Both Roddy and Cathy have retractable arms which can be used to grab enemies or other gameplay elements.
They can then be thrown at others to destroy them. Both players and enemies can interact with the scenery.
For example, walls can be pushed over enemies to kill them, and switches can be flipped to reveal special bonuses.
Throughout each location, you can pull on rings that will reveal special bonuses such as extra time. There are two different planes which the players can change between by pressing a button.
Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy gameplay (Neo Geo)
The player, as Roddy (the second player plays as Cathy), must navigate through the stages, collecting items, killing enemies, and defeating a boss at the end of each area. The characters can also execute special moves, done by moving the joystick in certain directions and pressing the attack button, similar to Street Fighter and King of Fighters fame.
The game is split into four planets: Forest, Ice, Wind, and Fire. Depending on what stage is picked first, the layout of the stage will change. For example, if the player picks the Ice world before the Forest world, the Forest world’s beginning layout will be different.
After completing all 4 worlds, the player is taken to the final stage, where they must rematch with the four bosses and battle the game’s antagonist, Captain Klapton.
