Globhead (Baburu Zugaikotsu in Japan, litterally translating to Bubble Skull) is a platformer made for the Sega

Globhead's Genesis Boxart

Genesis by BreakfastSquad and published by Fantendo on October 25th, 1992. It follows the adventures of Globhead, a skeleton with a slime bubble on his head, trying to defeat King Midas, the twisted dictator of Pacifica.


Globhead is a living skeleton with a slime bubble on his head. One day, while riding in his bi-plane, BlanderBass, he sees an island called Pacifica. Upon landing, he decides to check the place out.

Upon walking for a short while and climbing up a small hill, he finds the Fryer III, a plant-like machine that causes the volcano to erupt, transforming the once-peaceful Vista Hill into a dystopian, burnt wasteland. Globhead moves on, and finds the Midas Mole, another plant-like machine. After defeating it, Globhead moves on to Iguana Forest.

After going through all 7 of Pacifica's areas, Globhead sees the Golden Palace, King Midas' Utopian sky city. He gets into the BlanderBass and takes off to the Skies of Pacifica, a shoot-'em-up area with 6 Episodes. Globhead gets to the Golden Palace after defeating Fryer IV, a powered-up recreation of the Fryer III from Vista Hill.

Upon reaching the Golden Palace, Globhead finds that he must go through the city's vast crime-ridden lower area, climb up the Midas Tower, and, upon getting to the top, fighting the Midas Machine.

The Midas Machine's head will detatch from the mech, and fly into Dystopia, the belt of comets surrounding Azure, the planet which Pacifica is on. If all the money sacks have been collected from the bosses, Globhead will sprout demon wings, transforming into Burning Globhead, and fly off after the Midas Machine.

After defeating the Midas Machine, Globhead flies back to Azure as the credits roll.
