Breakers Revenge Free on Gametap till 10/4


#1

I just stumbled upon this game on Game Tap. You can play it FOR FREE. Completely legal! Just D/L the GameTap viewer and select “Breakers.” I think some cats know it as “Breaker’s Revenge.” I hear they are slightly different games (i.e. SF3:3s ver. A to SF3:3s ver b.) This game never had a home release and wasn’t even really made by SNK, to my knowledge. It’s a VERY solid game and since anyone with a pc and internet connection can play it FREE, legal and vs other players ONLINE, why not give it a shot?

Whoa are you serious? Starts downloading


#3

Yeah, they removed the unblockables.

WHAT A BIG UPDATE.


#4

I can’t seem to play the game, even though I’ve downloaded the players and even registered on the site.


#5

Breakers Revenge is a revision of Breakers, and it was made by Visco for the Neo-geo. This would be great except it’s only on free play till october 4th so I don’t think it is worth installing their player. Also check out the SNK thread; Breakers Revenge is all the rage over there.

p.s. Damn, they have a crapload of SNK games on freeplay; too bad it’s only temporary.


#6

Does it have netplay multiplayer?


#7

I cant change my controls on gametap =(

And the thing is going at 1/3 of the speed. Any tips to improve performance?


#8

Try uninstalling and re-installing. That’s seemed to help some people.

It’s worth it even for a couple of weeks. It doesn’t take that long to d/l, IMO.

YES!

If you register on GT’s website, you get control options for each game and some extra performance options, I believe. I’ll look a little further into it.

gametaps netplay is basically unplayable btw, just use p2p kaillera :confused:


#10

am pretty sure this is just mame with some modifications:looney:


#11

#12

SHO!


#13

I would be playing with you every day, except I live in the other side of the country :sad:, big SNK fan ;).

ps. TIA forever!

Does anyone else smile, when you see her win? Also I love her stage with the monk, its priceless.


#14

Thanks to the internet, we have known about this game for years now. It is great and lots of fun.


#15

Some people have and some people hear the name and go, “whatever,” but I just wanted to point out it is on gametap completely free and legal (that IS an issue for some people.)


#16

It would make since. I get the feeling that he was there as an intentional sf2 rip off even down to the name.

#17

yeah. Tia even says, “YATTA,” when she wins.


#18

The company that made this game got sued…by Capcom for obvious reasons…I mean come on…Tia has Chun Li legs…Chun Lis attakcs.Guile sonic Booms…Yuri/Sakura style uppercuts…Shoryureppa, PSYCHO CRUSHER…

And other things…but label this and laugh at it as a Street Figher clone and you will miss out on HOW GOOD THIS GEM IS.

Get your playin in and then when it goes out COME MY WAY when I am near you and ENJOY BREAKERS REVENGE EVOLUTION!!!

pc1x1- R U going to Final Round XI? It’ll be in Atlanta.

I don’t recall hearing Visco ever getting sued over this game. You might be thinking of Fighter’s History, there was definitely a lawsuit over that one! Also, I personally think the original World Heroes was an even worse ripoff than either of those games, but that’s for another thread.

As for the differences…best as I can tell, in terms of gameplay, Breakers and Breakers Revenge are exactly the same except Revenge has Saizo. Different backgrounds also.
