Heres a list of some FCFs (yes i just made that abbreviation up), which some of you may remember. Most of them you probably don’t, and for good reason too
-Kart Fighter - 1990
A bootleg fighting game based on Mario Kart, its must be boom right? Check it out
-Master Fighter 2 (Xoxo Soft) - 1992
A complete rip off of Street Fighter 2 for the NES, only has 5 characters, but guess who they are? None other than Ryu, Guile. Chun li, Zangief and Vega (dictator). Also apparently Giefs SPD is just a standing close forward+punch. I tried looking up the company who made it, Xoxo Soft, but apparently this is their only game, hmm. Unfortunately i couldn’t find any vids.
-Joy Mech Fight (Nintendo) - 1993
Just WTF, lol. And from Nintendo too, apparently. However it looks like it might have actually been OK gameplay wise, well compared to the other games you’ll see on this list anyway. Heres a vid.
-Street Heroes (Thin Chen Enterprises/Sachen) - 1995
Errrr…Air. A late comer, obviously unlicensed. Not really too much information on it. Heres a vid if you want to check it out. [media=youtube]dGa2b7D_j_c[/media]
Also heres the wiki page for the company that made it. Also creaters of Thunder Blast Man, lol.
-Street Fighter 2’ (Tec Toy) - 1997
Another copy of Street Fighter 2, but unlike Master Fighter 2 on the NES, it looks like a bit more effort went into this, it has more characters, aswell as better graphics and sounds, but it looks like it plays pretty shockingly, even though it was made in 1997, lol.
-Virtua Fighter Animation (Aspect/Tec Toy) - 1997
Another masterpeice… of **** from Tec Toy. Some of you might know it as Virtua Fighter mini on the gamegear.
Wow a dark horse for fighters or what, theres actually some pretty acceptable fighters on this system.
Elfmania (Terramarque) - 1994
-This fighter is pretty original, check out the wiki page. While the gameplay is probably not the best, the animation is nice, sound is great, and is probably a pretty enjoyable 1 player experience.
Only vids i could find were Amiga Long plays, [media=youtube]wBBiM9I80Mw[/media]
-Shadow Fighter (NA.P.S. Team) - 1994
Wow, another reasonable fighting game on the Amiga, Doesn’t look as good graphically as Elfmania, but it looks like it could make for an OK 2 player fighter, with a good selection of characters with special moves. The music and sound seem top tier too. Once again another long play vid, [media=youtube]taCR8R4_7Po[/media]
-Body Blows (Team 17) - 1995
From the creators of Worms, unfortunately this doesn’t look like it plays anywhere near as good, but the sprites are aleast decent. But by far the best thing about this game is the intro music, its too good. [media=youtube]_A31jV3nElY[/media]
-Capital Punishment (ClickBoom) - 1996
Unfortunately i couldn’t really find out too much about this game, but once again it seems like a fairly decent effort on the Amiga, although since it was made in 1996 it probably feels and plays very dated compared to other games of the time, but plays exceptionally well, compared to other Amiga games. However theres only 4 playable characters, eeek. Heres a review, if you want more info, http://www.amigaflame.com/amicp2.htm
-Strip Fighter 2 (Games Express) - 1993
What more is there to say, an absymal SF2 clone, but with strippers. [media=youtube]GdCn39yh3_k[/media] (contains nudity)
-Ragnagard/Shin Ou Ken (SNK) - 1996
I know it was on MVS, but I think this game really needs a mention. Its just horrible, how could SNK make this? What do the Neogeo heads think of this game?
