Intergalactic terror strikes the small town of Onett as a blazing extraterrestrial object crashes in the night! The Earth now faces imminent destruction by the universal evil threat, Giygas. A courageous boy names Ness, and his three friends, vow to save the planet from hideous destruction! Battle hundreds of off-the-wall monsters, roaming dinosaurs and alien enemies!
