Godzilla slower, but much more powerful, punching, kicking, tailing chopping and of course radioactive fire against opponents. The slightly surreal alien space garden! So, not a lot of finesse, more button mashing and health-capsule grabbing. There are always lots of tiny spaceships and projectiles being thrown around. Gezorah: we're unsure what he's actually trying to accomplish I should point out also that Godzilla and Mothra themselves are impressively big sprites.
