Title Shadow Fighter Game Type Beat-em-up Publisher Gremlin Players 1 or 2 HD Installable Yes Compatibility ECS and AGA versions Submission Chris Vella firstname.lastname@example.org Profiled Reviewer Review For the review I will refer to the AGA version. This game I feel is the best fighting game on the Amiga. It's better than Body Blows and Mortal Kombat, I even think its better than Capital Punishment. The game is loaded with options. You can select from a number of different characters, music/sound fx, time limit, blood on/off, and difficulty level. What makes this game better then all the rest is the playability. It plays like a dream. The way you use the joystick to pull off your special moves is the best method that I have seen so far. Its very easy and is simply a matter of moving the joystick in sort of a half circle motion, Unlike Mortal Kombat where you have to remember how many times left, right, up or down. Each character has a number of moves, all easy to execute and you'll appreciate it once you try it. The graphics and sound effects in the game are top notch, and really makes the game stand out above the rest. The scenery is beautiful and is sometimes animated. The characters are nicely varied and represent their respective homelands. The special moves are easy to pull off and are fun to watch the outcome of. The game is great as a 1 player game but as in most fighting games you will want to do battle against a friend. The difficulty level is just about perfect, maybe a touch easy for experienced players but you can set the options to make the game harder. The games good points: Excellent graphics and sounds The best control method yet for a single button joystick. Excellent playability. Great characters and special moves. Very professionally programmed. The games bad points. For some reason the game won't work when installed to my hard drive. I have heard that if you set the VBR to 0 then it will work, but I don't know what that means and I shouldn't have to do that. Other than that gripe I don't see any faults. In conclusion, I think that this is the best fighting game on the Amiga and is a must for fighting fans. Forget Mortal Kombat and get this instead, you will thank me. The great graphics, sound, and playability set this game above the rest. Buy this game and your money will be well spent.
