Zitz and the daughter of Psicone Industries' CEO have been kidnapped and Rash and Pimple must save them from the Dark Queen.

In the end, after eliminating the Dark Queen, the player must get rid of her spaceship.


This version has improved graphics and nice effects: the lava in the first stage, the perspective of the Clinger Winger-like stage (it uses SNES advanced use of several layers), the perspective of the motorcycle stage, among others. It has better sound and music, according to some players.

It resembles the first Battletoads more than the second game: it has a motorcycle, a rat race, a Clinger-Winger-like level, a vulture pit and a tower. It is hard but not as hard as the first game, because this one has fewer levels. It does not have any warp levels for this reason. It also had two bonus levels.

It is a little more violent than previous games. Pimple attacks include hitting with a junk and stomping the enemies. The sound is superior to its predecessors.
