Rash, pushed to despair and desperation, desires their fame and fortune again and solely is aware of a technique to take action: discover the Darkish Queen and beat her up once more. His fellow toads (no one is bound whether or not they’re mates or brothers or what) comply with see his insane and unhappy plan by.

Off they go on their turbo speeders to seek out the Darkish Queen, not realizing that they’re all wrapped up in a a lot larger story than they understand.

As a lot of the sport falls beneath the side-scrolling beat ‘em up style, you may select between Pimple (sluggish and powerful), Rash (quick and weaker), and Zitz (juuuuuuust proper).
