The year is 1993, and with only seven years left before the beginning of the 21st century, Earth’s people have lost everything; their hopes, their dreams, their work and their money. Revolutionary things are about to happen: Young boys hide amongst the fantasy world of their computers, ignoring the rest of the families. There is only sushi or curry to eat, the computerized refrigerator is often on strike and rumor has it that the Great Octopus is soon to arrive on Earth. This can only mean trouble. In a word, war! The Great Octopus has threatened Earth. To help Parodius save the planet, you and his friends must begin your search for the truth. As you search the whole world over you must find the enemy and you must destroy him.
