Altered Beast (ARC)
- For other versions of the game, see Altered Beast.
Altered Beast is a side scrolling platform beat-em-up. In the story, Zeus resurrects you from your tomb to rescue his daughter Athena who has been kidnapped by the god Neff. You begin as a mere mortal, but you can collect floating orbs by killing white two-headed wolves. Each orb you collect increases your strength dramatically. Upon getting a third orb, you transform into a beast man. You change into a different beast depending on the level, and there are five levels. Each level ends with Neff taking the form of a huge monster that you must defeat.
The soundtrack was composed by Tohru Nakabayashi, who composed many of Sega's arcade soundtracks in this era. The titles come from the Galaxy Force album.

After the game is beaten, a photo of the developers is shown. However, no roles are given, the developers use 3-letter names, and their eyes have been crossed out. Sega staff and official soundtracks have since confirmed Tohru Nakabayashi (credited as NAK.) as the game's composer and sound designer.
