The Body Blows Galactic wiki last edited by BeachThunder on 01/09/14 04:23PM View full history

Overview

Body Blows Galactic developed and published in 1994 by Team 17 is a sequel to the fighting game Body Blows. Compared with its predecessor it has greater graphics with better drawn and shaded figures, sadly it is slower than the original Body Blows and the collision detection is extremely frustrating.

The game was released in two different versions, as an AGA version for machines like Amiga 1200/4000 which makes use of the machine's 256-colour capability. The other version is for ECS machines like Amiga 500/600 and features the standard 32-colour mode graphics. The AGA version has better graphics and better sound but the ECS version is more playable because it runs a bit faster than the AGA one.

Gameplay

The game offers three distinct game modes:

  • One player mode: This is a kind of a tournament where the player can choose one of the twelve characters and fight through six different planets and win the coveted title "Galactic Champion". On each planet the player will face the two best fighters a planet has to offer.
  • Two player mode: Single fight against a human opponent or a cpu opponent
  • Tournament: 4 or 8 human players can contest against each other.

The player can choose between 10 new massivley diverse characters all with new moves and special abilities plus two old ones(Dan and Junior) taken from Body Blows.

The fighting places are located on planets. There are six different planets to choose from and each planet is represented by two of the twelve characters.
