Muscle Bomber - The Body Explosion (c) 1993 Capcom.

Choose from 10 different wrestlers in this 4-player wrestling/fighting game. Each wrestler has an assortment of moves, including his own special super slam. The object of the game is to win and defend the championship by pinning or putting a submission hold on your opponent. There are 2 different games to select and play : Single Match or Tag Team 'Battle Royal'.

In Single Match, you can choose to be one of eight wrestlers including Mike Hagger, Alexander The Grater, El Stingray, King Rasta Mon, Titanic Tim, Gunloc, Biff Bolshevik and The Great Oni (NOTE : Jumbo Jack and The Scorpion cannot be selected in this game).

After you have selected a wrestler, you will compete in a world-wide tournament against the other nine wrestlers (including Jumbo Jack and The Scorpion) in respective matches. In each match, you must defeat each of your respective opponents by a pinfall, countout or submission in order to proceed to each of the following matches. If you beat all the opponents, you will become the champion and then you will have to face all opponents again to defend your title.

In Tag Team 'Battle Royal', you get to choose any two of the ten wrestlers for your tag team including Jumbo Jack and The Scorpion. Here you and your partner have to eliminate both of the two wrestlers on the opposing tag team in order to win the match and proceed to the next. During these matches, if you are eliminated before your partner is, the match will be declared no contest and it will be a draw.

During each bout in this game, metal buckets and/or glass bottles will sometimes be thrown into the ring which can be picked by your wrestler(s) and used as weapons against your opponents.
