«©NCSX» Side scrolling platform games were once the rage in gaming circles but they've been displaced by first-person shooters. Every once in a while however, developers revisit the old school and create a new platform game that'll whet the appetites of middle-aged fans. In the case of Ikuze! Gen-San, Irem's new platformer is the sequel to a game titled Daiku no Gensan aka Hammerin' Harry which hit Japanese arcades in 1990. In that earlier game, the protagonist Gen-San's house was completely destroyed by a bunch of goons from an evil construction company. To seek revenge, Gen-San took up the hammer and sought revenge against the company. Irem's sequel follows the same basic theme.

When a corrupt construction company (fueled by corporate greed) overbuilds and disrupts the natural harmony of the great outdoors, an honor-bound carpenter rises up to put an end of the construction boom. Armed with a hammer and gifted with agility and moxie, the hero named Gen-San (Carpenter) trudges through different stages and dismantles robots, construction equipment, enemy workers, and other agents of the company. When the occasion calls, Gen-San can adopt the skills of eight other professionals such as a baseball player, a sushi chef, disc jockey, lumberjack, deep sea diver, and more. In his baseball persona, Gen-San wears a player's uniform and swings a bat and throws strikes. On the flipside, DJ Gen-San is decked out in baggy clothes and busts a move with a boombox and LPs. He's versatile and adept like that.
