Battletoads in Battlemaniacs was released for the Super Nes in 1993, a follow up to 225238-battletoads-in-battlemaniacs-sega-master-system-screenshotthe awesome Battletoads games on the original Nintendo.

Sadly this game cannot compete with those earlier games in terms of gameplay or level design but still has much to enjoy. Firstly the graphics are excellent with chunky colourful characters and richly detailed backgrounds, the music is superb with some really meaty sound effects and the basic gameplay is fun with excellent controls.

Even worse is the fact that you must restart each level from the beginning when you die which adds to the repetition, whilst this sort of thing was forgivable on the 8 bit systems there is no excuses on the 16 bit consoles (especially when games released years earlier like Streets of Rage have no such problems).
