5. “Bad Dudes” was a fighting game that I remember beating. Not absoloutly sure, but I think I did. You play Blade and Striker, two street brawlers fighting their way through the mean-streets of New York on a mission to rescue “President Ronnie.” I just remember you would be standing on the top of moving trucks fighting ninja’s. Very dope.
4. “Double Dragon is another classic fighting gane that ate a ton of my quarters. You play karate brothers Billy and Jimmy who take on the Black Warriors gang to rescue Billy’s girlfriend. This was one of that hardest games. I never beat it, but was blessed to be able to watch somebody do it a couple times.
3. “Ghost and Goblins” weaved the tale of Sir Arthur, and zombie-killing knight who must defeat the devil himself to save his princess. The game was wild because after you beat the game, you had to replay it to get to the final boss. Only this time, it was way harder.
2. “Ikari Warriors” was another good one where you took on the role of Rambo-type soilders fighting through enemy tanks and soldiers in order to safe the small village of Ikari. The controller let you shoot in ultiple directions so you could hit your enemies from all sides.
1. “WWF Superstars” was their first arcade game and one of my all time favorites. The roster alone is noteworty and ranged from Hulk Hogan and Macho Man, to Big Boss Man and Honkey Tonk Man. You fought your way through tag team matches for a title shot against Ted Dibiase and Andre the Giant, also known as the “Mega Bucks.” Much like “Mat Mania” arcade game, once you beat the Mega Bucks you go through another series defending the tiles. The game ends when you beat the Mega Bucks in a rematch.
