Based on the toyline, Zoids Densetsu fails to live up the standard of even that middling property; it was, by far, the worst Game Boy release to that point.

While definitely not the best shooter I’ve ever played, it’s also not the worst. It’s nice to see the various Zoid mechs in this game, certainly brings back memories for me when I use to build these things. Simple shooter reminds me of another GB shooter called Faibird, but Zoids is definitely a harder game between the 2.
