Professor X has been kidnapped, and it's up to the X-Men to save him.
The game is an arcade side-scroller pitting Colossus, Cyclops, Dazzler, Nightcrawler, Storm, and Wolverine against their Arch Enemies Arcade and Magneto. The game has more than 500 action and combat screens, as well as some puzzle-solving. A one-shot comic book prequel was included in the package.
