C-2: Judgement Clay, more often known as ClayFighter 2, is the sequel to the original ClayFighter. It was in development for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega 32X, however only a Super Nintendo version was released in 1994.
In the town of Mudville, the clay meteor crashed in ClayFighter. Learning of the spectacle that took place in "Playland", the evil Dr. Kiln flies in on his aircraft containing the residue he collected from the meteor and spreads it to the rest of Mudville in order to create more fighters. He declares himself grand master of Mudville after the fall of N. Boss, the ending boss of the original ClayFighter. He holds the C-2 tournament to see who can become next grandmaster of Mudville.
Dateline Mudville: July 15th, 1994.
Authorities have now confirmed the mysterious purple clay meteor that recently wreaked havoc through the land is once again active. Clay emissions from the meteor have been spreading through Mudville at an alarming rate, leaving the land flooded in a sea of rising clay. One eye witness described the spreading clay as a "gigantic blanket of bubbling goo covering the...." Unfortunately the witness was not able to finish before being engulfed by a gushing mass of clay.
It is believed that moments before the second claytastrophie began, an alien spacecraft in the shape of a prune Danish landed approximately one quarter of a mile away from the meteor. Witnesses described a strange man with a big head, large buggy eyes wearing a lab coat with the inscription "Extremely Mad Scientist, Dr. Kiln", jumping out of the craft. According to one startled citizen, Dr. Kiln pressed his nose, and out of both nostrils shot a big honking loogey, it was large and green and struck the central portion of the meteor. The meteor instantly pulsed with a strange green glow and begun spewing forth the dreaded clay emissions. Then Dr. Kiln shouted at the top of his lungs - "I am now and will remain supreme ruler of all Mudville, N. Boss is no more... And just try and stop me."
The most recent reports indicate that an array of formidable warriors has risen from the spreading sea of clay, apparently to meet Dr. Kiln's challenge and vie for supreme leader themselves. These clay fighters are believed and fiercer than those that rocked Mudville during the last claytastrophie. Who of these new warriors will finally triumph and rule the land? Hoppy, a rowdy bunny? Buff and Bad Mr. Frosty? Maybe It will be Blob, Goo Goo, Nana Man, Octo, Kangoo, or last year's champion Tiny. It all depends on you. Are you ready? From the C2: Judgment Clay Manual.
The gameplay has changed from the first Clayfighter by quite a bit. The sprites are smaller and the characters move faster. Throws and holds were removed for unknown reasons. There are also five new characters. In the single player mode, each character fights other characters in the game before fighting their rival. There is also a tournament mode for up to eight players.
