Overview

Universal Soldier is a run-and-gun action game released exclusively for the Sega Genesis, though there was a separate Game Boy game based on the same property. The property in question is the 1992 TriStar Pictures film Universal Soldier, starring Jean Claude Van Damme as Pvt. Luc Deveraux: a soldier that was killed in action in Vietnam but brought back without his memories by US military scientists for the top secret Universal Soldier program.

Rather than developed from scratch, the game took an in-progress Genesis port of Factor 5's Turrican II: The Final Fight and graphically edited many of the sprites to resemble characters from the movie to convert the game into a last-minute licensed tie-in. They also removed the spaceship shoot 'em up sequences and replaced them with more on-foot missions more germane to the movie's setting, such as the Vietnamese jungles. All of the Turrican's moves were left intact, including rolling up into a spiked ball form.
