Predator 2 is a 1992 side-scrolling shooter video game developed by Teeny Weeny Games and published by Arena Entertainment for the SEGA Master System and SEGA Game Gear. It is based on the film of the same name.
The Master System title is one of three video games created to tie into the release of Predator 2. Also produced were a Commodore game and a Genesis game. Despite the fact all three were released under the title Predator 2, gameplay actually varies quite substantially across the three titles.
Unlike the more ambitious SEGA Genesis version of the game, Predator 2 Master System was played in a side-scrolling perspective. The player takes control of Mike Harrigan and has to fight drug dealers whilst rescuing a certain number of hostages at each level. The Predator's three-dotted laser aim is a menace to avoid, which can kill either the hostages or Mike himself. Gang members killed drop drugs which can be picked up for points (and sent to the drugs squad). At the end of each level a boss must be defeated.
Mike can move and shoot in all 8 directions, but can only stop and shoot up, down, left and right. Besides his pistol, Mike can also collect new weapons such as grenades, shotguns, machine-guns and rifles. Body armor can be collected for health and med kits for extra lives.
