One of the most underrated and obscure 2D platform games ever made, Iron Blood (released as Interrupt in Korea) offers fast and furious arcade-style fighting in well-animated backdrops, against a surprising variety of "bosses".

Gameplay is essentially identical to a typical side-scrolling platform game, except that the robots and enemies in the game are very well drawn in the Japanese anime style. You have 2 players (Roy Fregun piloting the RG-104 Cyber-Troll and Sedrin Cleis piloting the SG-43 Ripple) to choose from in Iron Blood, each with his/her own special abilities and weapons. The game is equally fun with both, although the RG-104 Cyber-Troll's jet booster was very helpful in making those impossible high jumps you will need to make. Aside from this difference, the game is equally challenging with both characters. The game's highlights, aside from great anime graphics, are definitely the level-end bosses, each of whom has unique weapons, attack modes, and weaknesses that are fun to discover. With plenty of enemy robots to blast, lots of cool power-ups, and imaginative bosses that are no cakewalk, Iron Blood is definitely worth a look to all fans of the genre. If you have even a passing interest in platform games, you will probably like Iron Blood. Fans of Mega Man (i.e. Rockman in Asia) in particular will find the game addictive. Thumbs up!
