Looking for an action game (with so little information)

Can't think of the name of that arcade game you used to play? This is the place to ask!

Looking for an action game (with so little information)

Post by newHere » January 25th, 2012, 10:42 pm

Hi guys, I came across this forum and I think you guys can help me to look for a long lost game.
I played this game many years ago and my memory is not as accurate as before.
Here comes, it is an action game, not fighting vs game.
All I can recall from the game is the protagonist can use dragon punch, or shou-ryu-ken
Well it kinda resembles dragon punch, but you can see he uses palm, rather than has his hand closed.
If you can perform this tech. all the way through, you will be quite invincible in the stages.
I guess if I can remember this dragon palm clearly, at least it loads some good sprites, so it would not be one of those 8-bit pixel games
Sorry guys, thats about all I can remember, those remaining are quite blur so I should not confuse you with them at this stage.
Please help me look for this long lost game in my life. Cheers.

BTW, is there ever a list of characters who use dragon punch being made? :hehe:

So, this is an arcade game we're talking about, right?

OK, I have one small problem with that; the main MAME database, MAWS, is down at the moment. In the meantime, have a flick through these pages to see if anything looks familiar:

Some player characters in Burning Fight, Denjin Makai and Silent Dragon have dragon punch animations, but not with an open palm. One game that kinda does though is Guardians / Denjin Makai II. Use Girulian (the dude with blonde hair and shades) and press jump and attack together for a special move. He launches straight up and swings his arm around twice with an open palm.
