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

Name of Fighting game [Solved]

Post by fyfasen » December 11th, 2013, 5:12 am

Hi. I remember this fighting game, but not its' name.. Ypu could choose from av variety of characters and fought opponents in rounds/fights. One character was a fatso with a killer drop-kick or drop-elbow. Another character was an asian dressed in red I think, who punched with his hands folded down, eg he hit with the top of his wrist. The last character I remember was a (kick?)boxer in jeans and t-shirt and he had a killer uppercut as a special blow.

Does this ring any bells?

Was it 3D? 2D? 2.5D (like Aggressors of Dark Kombat)?

My guess is Double Dragon on the Neo-Geo.

Hi again.

The game was in 2d, seen from the side. It's probably not any of the games mentioned above. Definately not double dragon or final fight.

I'll try to come up with more clues, but this was in the very late 80's or very early 90's, so my memory is a bit clouded.

Hi! World Heroes Perfect has a red dressed asian character, a muay thai fighter, and a fat viking... so maybe this is what you're looking for.

Did you take a close look at Neo-Geo Double Dragon before dismissing it? It's not like most other Double Dragon games; it's a versus fighter, not a scrolling beat 'em up. There are some strong matches to your description, too. One fighter, Burnov, is so fat that he's almost completely round! Another fighter, Cheng-Fu, uses Drunken Master style, so his stance involves him holding imaginary wine cups in hands, which brings his wrists forward.

That's a very specific piece of info in your description about hand position. I don't remember it in that many arcade fighting games. The only other one I can think of off the top of my head is Gen, from Street Fighter Alpha series, who uses a mix of Mantis and Crane styles.

I doubt that anyone would be in here searching for a game as famous Street Fighter. Neo-Geo Double Dragon is relatively obscure, though, which is why I thought it was worth mentioning before going for a deeper search.

Thanks for the answers. No, I'm positive that it's not Double dragon. I took a look at the video, and it's far too hectic and "modern". As I rememer the screen practically didn't scroll at all. And the game play was tournament like.

I'll dig deeper into my memory...

Another thing about the "fatso" - i think he also was wearing jeans and t-shirt. And perhaps I've mixed my memories up... Perhaps the boxer was in a different game. The asian - I guess chinese - (I think he had a long pony tail and a typical chinese straw hat) and the fatso were definately in the same game. And the fatso were'nt all that fat, just like a typical bar brawler with a few crates o'beer too many invested in the belly...

The search goes on...

Thanks for the World Heroes tip. Nope, that wasn't it. But now I remeber that game, though... As I recall the game I'm looking for didn't have quite as many characters to choose from as World heroes...
