I have scoured the internet for information about a game I vaguely remember seeing during the mid-90’s flurry of fighting games. I occasionally have obsessive compulsive fits when I think about this game, because I have so little to go on but I know I saw it.
First of all, we’re talking Cyberbots level obscurity. If you search for obscure fighting games, you won’t even see Cyberbots. It’s THAT obscure.
Furthermore, it’s not on any “worst fighting games” lists, but obviously nor among the best. Just one of those games like Karnov’s Revenge or Aggressors of Dark Kombat that kind of slipped through the fingers of fighting game history.
What I remember is a character that, according to my vague memory, was named Tiki, and, a la Darkstalkers (i.e., Morrigan, Succubus) had the title of Chameleon. What I remember of Tiki (if I am correct on his name) is that he had claws and a long tongue and wore a purple outfit. I also remember that the style of the artwork was comparable to Street Fighter Alpha, but preceded the game by at least couple years.
I’m losing my mind here. I’ve run out of google searches to try, and I’m hoping, perhaps in vain (especially if it was all a hallucination), that someone in this community knows what I’m talking about.
