Body Count is a 1994 video game released on the Sega Channel in the United States. The game was available for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis all over the world and featured a lone soldier, controlled by the player, who had to fight different kinds of enemies. Most of the enemies he had to encounter were aliens who wanted to invade the Earth, and the main target of the game is to stop them from their evil plans. The player controlled the character from a first-person perspective through all the levels.
Body Count has a simple story: aliens have invaded the Earth, and you, a lone soldier who is particularly skilled at shooting and sniping, is called to save the planet.
Making use of the large selection of weapons at your disposal you will have to fight off aliens, large insects, robots and more. When the going gets tough there's even nuclear weapons to utilise. The future of the planet is in your hands, can you finish the job...?
Menacer owners, lock and load. The newest Menacer compatible game is heading your way. Body Count from Sega puts you behind the sights as a resistance leader, shooting it out with the alien forces that rule Earth.
Body Count is a one- or two-player game for the Menacer, Mega Mouse and control pads. The action is nonstop shoot-'em-up through five big hair-trigger levels. The game is loaded with enemies that run, leap, crawl, bike, fly and appear from nowhere. Backing them up are mechanized machines of destruction that take serious blasting to defeat.
The game is packed with power-ups and special weapons. Look for intermission sequences between rounds to keep you in tune with the story. Alien invasions are always a bummer. Body Count is the game that gives you a chance to fight back...without getting tangled in your game cord!
