Predator 2 is a Sega Mega Drive, Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear game made by Acclaim's "Grey Team" and Teeny Weeny Games based on the 1990 Predator 2 film.

The game is an isometric shooter where the player takes the role of Lt. Harrigan, which must explore through various levels that are recreated scenes from the movie rescuing tied up hostages from the clutches of the drug gangs. While the three versions of the game (Mega Drive, Master System and Game Gear) have their own particular differences, the core gameplay between them remains mostly similar.

Gameplay

The Mega Drive version controls are the following: press A to fire your main gun, or when collected, an special weapon; B locks the aim of the gun, and C toggles between collected weapons.

The Master System and Game Gear have slightly different control scheme: 1 fires your gun, 2 selects through special weapons.

Versions

The Sega Mega Drive version doesn't reveal the name of the developer, though he left a string message (along with his name) in the game's binary for hackers to find it.[9]

The Master System and Game Gear versions mostly features side-scrolling levels
