1 Game story

There was a legendary "KING PAMERA" who maintained peace and order all over
the world. Nobody could ever catch sight of "KING PAMERA". One day the king
demon "BELZEBUT", had a wicked plot to bring the world into ruin by abducting
the merciful "KING PAMERA", his beloved queen, and their beloved princess.

The brothers MIGHTY fought bravely against "BELZEBUT" in order to save "KING
PAMERA". Every brother was defeated by the king demon except Jack, the
youngest and lone survivor. Jack gained additional courage and challenged the
king demon to a final fight, in order to restore peace all over the world.
