This is an NES port of Altered Beast created by Asmik. This version of Altered Beast carries additional levels, bosses and transformations.
For those unfamiliar with Altered Beast, the gist of the game is that you are a warrior who comes back from the dead to punch and kick monsters through various levels because a god told you to. However, this is where THE GIMMICK comes in – as you collect power-ups, your warrior will gradually lose his clothes and grow larger man-boobs! Collect enough, and you can turn into a were-animal that gains new moves. Some of the moves in this version differ from other versions. For example, the Bear’s petrification bubble was replaced with a much more practical and powerful projectile.
As far as I can tell, this patch will translate that pesky Japanese title screen into something more familiar. I wish I could tell you more, but after spending about an hour being terrible at the game, the frustration got to me and I gave up hope that there might be translated text at the end. Plus, the readme doesn’t really go into details, but considering the nature of the game that’s fair enough.
