This is part of my continuing series of playing and reviewing random SNES games I’ve never heard of. Some of these are just quick looks at the game, and may not be too terribly in depth. Today’s game is Battle Master – Ultimate Warriors (Battle Master – Kyuukyoku no Senshitachi).
This is a 2D fighting game similar to, umm. . .crap, what was the name of that game?
I can’t remember. . .
Geez, you would think I’d recognize where F-D-DF-Punch comes from…
Ohhhh, right! Street Fighter!
D-DB-B-Kick for a move where you move forward and kick repeatedly.
Also, the stage looks like Ken’s stage, doesn’t it? Another one looks like Guile’s stage. And the robot’s stage sounds a little bit like Vega’s stage. The difference? You can stand on top of the far-end objects instead of breaking them! Innovative!
These are the characters. I couldn’t find anything on Wikipedia or ANN about this game, so it’s not based on a TV show or comic as far as I can tell.
One thing that’s kind of interesting is that some characters (like the furry) have moves like the Lightning Kick/Hundred Hand Slap, but you do half-circle motions instead of button-mashing. Overall, though, this one isn’t very good.
