Mercs Cheats & Cheat Codes for Sega Gensis, and more!

Mercs Summary

Mercs, as it is known in the West, was released in February 1990. It has a similar style of gameplay to various top-down shooters such as Contra, or very old-school Metal Gear. It was released under the name Senjō no Ōkami II, or “Wolf of the Battlefield II” for those who don’t speak Japanese. Upon its release, it received great commercial and critical success, with several outlets calling it their hit of the month, and Game Machine saying that it was its second hit game of May 1990.

Mercs Premise

Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president? Wait, no, that’s a different game. But in any event, the former president has been kidnapped, and he’s being held hostage in the fictional African country of Zutula. Man, if I had a penny for every fake African country…

In any case, it’s your job as a member of Wolf Force to get in there and save the president. You have to fight through six different levels, each one with its boss at the end. Games back in the 1990s were a lot simpler than today, huh?

Mercs Cheat Code FAQ

Are there any cheats? Yep! You can find two above!

Do they have miniatures? That’s from a Tabletop game known as MERCS. Despite the name, they are unrelated.
