Battlemaniacs on the Master System is a shoddy port of the original SNES game. In addition to being single-player only, it's also missing enemies, stages, and music. It was developed by Virgin rather than Rare, and it was only released in Brazil.

The Clinger Wingers stage, which requires you to press the directional buttons with precision, is nearly impossible on a Sega Master System controller because of the weird shape of the d-pad. Try using a Genesis 6-button controller instead.
Battlemaniacs is a shoddy, borderline criminal port. It's barely functional, features near-constant glitches, looks terrible, and lacks music for all the scrolling stages. It cut several stages from the original, which was already a super short game. Worst of all, the "Clinger Wingers" stage is almost impossible on a Master System controller.
