Neo*Geo co-op arcade platformer with several gimmicks. First, the stages have two planes, so you can jump from foreground to background, and background to foreground. Second, you have a long stretchy bionic arm that you can use to punch/grab stuff at long range.
The stretchy arm is fine, but the two-plane thing drives me nuts, because you can't always tell if something (a lever you have to pull, for instance) is in the foreground or in the background.
Very animated graphically, though, with powerups and so forth popping up and sparkling all over the screen. Bashing the badguys is pretty visceral--once you get on the right plane (grr).
