Altered Beast is a 1988 beat ’em up arcade game developed and manufactured by Sega. The game is set in Ancient Greece and follows a player character resurrected by Zeus to rescue his daughter Athena from the ruler of the underworld, Neff. Through the use of power-ups, the player character can assume the form of different magical beasts (wolf, dragon, bear and tiger). After its initial arcade release, it was ported to several home video game consoles and home computers, including the Sega Genesis, for which it was a pack-in game.

In addition to the Genesis and Master System, Altered Beast was ported to several platforms, including for PC Engine, PC Engine-CD, FamicomAtari STCommodore 64ZX SpectrumAmstrad CPC, and commodore Amiga. Several of the conversions for European systems were completed by Activision. Certain differences are seen between the several versions of the game. Some of them, like the Master System version, were missing levels. Others provided different beasts to mutate into, such as a humanoid lion, or a shark form seen in the Famicom version, ported by Asmik.

Altered Beast is a side scrolling beat ’em up game with light platform elements. It has five levels and can be played by up to two players simultaneously. The game’s premise is that the player is originally dead but then resurrected and empowered by the Olympian god Zeus to act as his champion. The task is to rescue the goddess Athena from the underworld ruler Neff, who will appear at the end of each level and take on different forms to defeat the players.
