Game Genie™ Codes For Trouble Shooter

This is a challenging sci-fi-themed shooter with a wide variety of weapons, fast action and good graphics. Without codes, you start with only four life units on the life meter, which makes it difficult to go on and rescue King Fredrick's son from Blackball. With Codes 2 thru 10, you can decide how many life units you start with, and make the game easier or harder to suit your taste. Codes 14 thru 18 let you change the number of starting credits from the normal two.

Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Battle Mania series (2 titles)
RELEASED:         various
TYPE:             Action
LANGUAGE:         English and Japanese

PREMISE:          Mania Ohtori and Maria Waneda aren't just your average
                  gorgeous-looking babes with a bit of an attitude.  They
                  are in truth the infamous mercenary team of Madison and
                  Crystal, better known as the Trouble Shooters, who will
                  take on any job for the right amount of money.  This
                  is an apparent take on the popular Japanese manga/anime
                  series Dirty Pair.

IMPRESSIONS:      A cute Japanese shooter with only passable graphics,
                  gameplay, and weapons systems.  Otaku can take it out for
                  a spin, otherwise avoid. (Rage Games)

VARIATIONS:       The first game were released in English-speaking markets
                  under the title of Trouble Shooter.  There is some
                  speculation as to whether or not the second title was
                  ever released in an English language version.

                  Battle Mania (1992, aka Trouble Shooter - Madison and
                    Crystal are called into an unnamed foreign country to
                    find the assasins of the king's son, and as expected
                    shoot and blow up the whole place in the process)
                  Battle Mania 2 (1995, aka Trouble Shooter Vintage - the
                    girls take on an powerful enemy who is bent on taking
                    over the city with the help of an array of both bestial
                    and high-tech stooges)

BM2 is better than the first and may be worth hunting down.

This game plays like Forgotten Worlds but with characters that tend to "mock" the girls from Dirty Pair.

The first game has a cutesy look, although a little ugly in some parts, which was very fun, but way too easy and fairly short.

The second game (Japan only) is just as good, if not better; The visuals, music, and gameplay have improved, and there is more of a story worked into it than the previous game.

This game was sadly forgotten over the years. It's too bad we never got the second (Only Trouble Shooter/Battle Mania 1). It deserved a TV show and even a manga series. I hope someone revives it. >.<;
