The two outer phone booths are empty but if you destroy the one in the middle you will find an apple.

Round 2

In this level there are many power-ups hidden under the cans.

The pepper will stun the enemies for a few seconds!

Round 3

The baseball bat will help you pass through the first part of this level. Try to defeat the enemies as they appear or they will follow and gang up on you making it harder to fight them off individually.

Get the meat after you've defeated the kung fu masters.

Make sure that you get the 1-UP icon on this level.

To defeat this Boss all you have to do is grab him, do two knee slams, and then backdrop him. Keep the meat on the screen just in case you need to refill your energy.

Round 4

In this level the enemies are more numerous and tougher than before. Watch your back!

Look under the cones and barriers for power-ups.

Don't miss this valuable 1-UP!

Boss 4

This Boss is rather easy once you know his weak spot. Knock him down with a jumpkick and then rapidly knee slam him. Don't try to backdrop him or else!

Here's a street fighting game that'll knock your socks off. New, Streets of Rage from Sega Genesis. You get a total of 40 individually controllable attack moves. Upper cuts. Head butts. Flying double knee attacks. Neck grabs. Jumping pile drivers.

Go at 'em with everything you've got. Pipes. Bottles. Knives. Dish out justice however you see fit. Remember, you're the good guys. But watch your back. These goons are even more ruthless than you are. Gangs of 'em come at you from everywhere ... and keep on coming.

So if you want to clean up the streets, don't just sit there. Do something. Get Streets of Rage from Sega Genesis.

Streets of Rage is a beat ‘em up side scrolling game and the first one in the trilogy of the same name. At the time of its release it was competing with Final Fight for popularity, which is why fans have split opinions about the two, as they both have their own pros and cons.

The story behind Streets of Rage is nothing special; three police officers (Adam, Axel and Blaze) set out to cleanse the city of crime by simply defeating any and all thugs they encounter. Their superiors had been caught in the web of corruption spread throughout the city, thus they must go it alone.

The gameplay consists of up to five enemies entering the screen from either side, and you must obviously defeat them in order to move on to the next part of the level. Each of the three playable characters can use a basic attack, jump, attack while jumping and finally use a special move which calls a non-playable ally to shoot all enemies on the screen. Note that this ability can only be used once per level, although you may find power ups scattered throughout the game. At the end of each level you must fight an oversized boss in order to continue. The strange part about them is that they are nameless as well as strange themselves; at one point you get to fight a sword wielding pirate.

Streets of Rage also has a two-player mode, and four difficulty levels to tailor to any type of gamer. Based on the mode played, the game can show an alternate ending, which adds a little replay value. The three characters are also slightly different in terms of gameplay. Adam is the strongest of all, but moves slowly; Axel is well balanced but doesn’t jump as high; Blaze is the most agile of the three, but her strength is not that great.

Because there can be many enemies at once on the screen, the sizes of the characters had to be reduced, and this makes them less impressive than its so-called rival, Final Fight. However, the environments are nicely designed and the audio is top notch and really sets the mood.

Streets of Rage can provide hours of entertainment and even if it does not bring anything new to the table, there is really nothing frustrating or off putting about it. It is definitely worth checking out.

Streets of Rage features:

  • Four difficulty settings and two player co-op mode
  • Three different characters with pros and cons
  • Alternate ending based on the game mode

  • I love this game. It marked a part of my youth. And their intro song is wonderful. Now i'm a music producer and i have created a remix of the intro in 80's style, because the game is in 80's style too. :-)

    Download the song at this page: http://www.sondclick.com/paradoxaction

    The song name is Streets of Rage (Paradoxaction Remix)

    Enjoy! :-)
