The gameplay is depicted on a movie screen in front of a movie theater crowd simulating an actual monster movie. Each scenario even starts off with an advertisement, (for Popcorn and "Gummi Glogs". In the Apple II version "Godzilla Mouthwash" is also featured), and other attractions, (such as promotions for other Epyx games like Summer Games, Summer Games II, Winter Games, and Super Cycle. In the Apple II version World Karate Championship and World Games is also advertised), before the "Feature Presentation" of the game begins.
