Double Dragon 1 -2
Vendetta
Burning Fight
Cadillacs Dinasours

Thanks

4 Player X-men. Good even if you are the only one. And Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Neither will blow your mind as ground breaking titles but both offer enjoyable game play and recognizable characters. You should also check out Golden Axe a very old school beat'em up. My personal favorite I can't tell you how many times I have played through it.
My child, you have come to me my son. For who now is your father if it is not me? I am the well spring, from which you flow. When I am gone, you will have never been. What would your world be, without me? My son.

Thanks for the tips. I have played golden axe a lot on genesis but never on mame , so will give it a try. Arcade versions of beatemup games are usually superios to their console ports, it should be good :smile:

Tmnt and x-men will try them. I think I have tmnt game on my mame folder so will play it first.

Battle Circuit and Asterix are also good games I (re)discovered them in my long forgotten mame archives...

btw Not a beatem up but found this video while browsing youtube for mame games ...

I was playing Battle Circuit today and it's one of the nicest beat em ups i played. You can upgrade your attacks!

Well if you check the Recommended MAME Games thread you may find what you're looking for (and there are also reviews about games you mentioned like Final Fight and Vendetta) :wink:
