Sixty-five million years ago, dinosaurs were not the only species fighting to survive on this planet. Earth was also the setting for countless battles between the gods, who grew more powerful day by day. Realizing that their power posed a threat to the rest of the galaxy, a great wizard from a parallel dimension banished one of the gods to the center of the moon. This in turn disrupted the balance of power among the gods, causing a huge explosion that enveloped Earth in dust. The results terminated most life on the planet as suspended animation held the surviving gods in check.
Millions upon millions of years later, a great meteor destroyed much of Earth. Though humans survived, their technology was all but wiped out. The continents rearranged themselves, wiping out all major cities. Earth was now "Urth" and its changes were only beginning as the great cataclysm awakened the gods from their slumber. With millions of years of vengeance to account for, you can bet that there will be plenty of Primal Rage!
In this prehistoric yet post-apocalyptic fighting game, you assume the role of one of these gods or another powerful warrior in his fight for supremacy. There are seven fighters to choose from, including five dinosaurs and two huge apes. In addition to a variety of combos and basic moves, each competitor has three special moves exclusive to him. For instance, Sauron, the T-Rex-like god of Hunger, unleashes his Primal Scream just as Blizzard, the god representing the essence of animal spirit in the form of a white gorilla, has the ability to "throw the air." Also assisting a fighter is his "rage" factor, providing a slight advantage that might just prove to be the difference.
Your objective in a one-player game is to defeat every competitor so as to claim his territory on Urth. You then must defeat them all, one right after the other, in a decisive final battle. A second player is also welcome and can even assume the CPU's role as ruler of a continent on Urth in the midst of a one-player game. Other gameplay options include the ability to adjust round times, the number of rounds in a match, difficulty (anywhere from 1 to 16), and controls. Primal Rage also features Training, Tug of War, and Endurance game modes. ~ Christopher Michael Baker, All Game Guide
