Video Game: Keith Courage In Alpha Zones

A 1988 Platform Game starring a boy and his mecha suit, which appear in alternating sections of each of seven levels. The boy is only armed with a sword, but he can buy bombs and better swords which the mecha suit can use in the harder second half of each level.

The game originated in Japan as Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru, a Licensed Game based on an anime by Sunrise of the same title, but when NEC Home Electronics released it in the U.S. and made it the pack-in game for the Turbo-Grafx 16, they retitled it Keith Courage in Alpha Zones and wrote a new plot involving an Alien Invasion by the Planet of B.A.D. (Beastly Alien Dudes).
