MARTIAL CHAMPION  (KONAMI)

SUPER CD-ROM 2 (JAPANESE VERSION)

This fighting game, developed by traditional Konami in 1993, isnīt definitely well known by gamers around the world. Martial Champion were only released on arcades and PC-ENGINE. This fighting game is far from the high quality of Street Fighter II or Fatal Fury... nevertheless, it has nice background graphics, excellent musics and sound effects, and slightly well drawn characters. Martial Champion definitely fails on gameplay, which is on par with Variable Geo.

 

In this game, you can choose among ten different characters, such as Chaos (a bizarre fighter from Hong Kong), Zen (a Kabuki actor), the sexy Egyptian Titi and the main character, Jim. Martial Champion is also one of the few PC-ENGINE games which uses 3 buttons (I, II and Run).

 

Some characters use weapons to attack, weapons that can be stolen and used by you. Your mission is to win the championship and beat the final boss, named Salamander (!!!)... quite an original name, donīt you think? :)

  

Martial Champion is a simple game, with not too many different moves, but itīs an interesting choice for Konami fans, specialy because you wonīt be able to find a different conversion on any other console.
