Somebodies punched your girlfriend in the gut and carried her off.  Time to take to the streets (with your brother if you have one) to beat up the bad guys and rescue her.

The game is a right scrolling game like Green Beret but focusing on fist fighting, more like Way of the Exploding Fist but with shoot-em up style waves of baddies rather than a straight one v one fight.

It’s a fun, tough game, with some very good controls.  Three fire buttons take care of all the action.  One for punching and throwing, one for kicking, and one for jumping.  One of the best touches is weapons such as bats and whips you can get off some of the meaner bad guys.

Game wise there’s not a whole lot happening here.  Just walk right and beat the living daylights out of anyone who appears on the screen.  You have two lives and five health bars per life for each credit so either perfect the timing of hitting before getting hit, or pump the machines with coins.

Still what it lacks in depth it makes up for in straight up gameplay, and it looks good with colourful backgrounds and large sprites.
