The Dangerous Streets wiki last edited by fiye on 01/26/14 03:10PM View full history

Overview

Dangerous Streets developed by the Italian company Micromania and published by Flair Software is a fighting game in the style of Street Fighter II.

It was released for PC, Amiga 500/600, Amiga 1200 and Amiga CD32.

The Amiga CD32 version is using "256 colors AGA" graphics which are similar to the PC "VGA" graphics and slightly enhanced compared to the "32 colors ECS/OCS" graphics of the Amiga floppy drive version.

The game received poor ratings in several Amiga magazine reviews which critiziced the amateurish graphics, woeful sound, slightly childish-looking characters, feeble sound effects, bad animation and incomprehensible control. Only the lush and colourful background graphics with paralax scrolling were commended in some reviews.

Dangerous Streets was the lead game in the bundle(called "The Dangerous Streets Pack") that the most people got their Amiga CD32 machine in. This was perhaps disadvantageous for the reputation of the CD32 due the low quality of the game. Dangerous Streets was also released in a bundle togheter with Wing Commander for Amiga CD32.

Gameplay

The game offers three distinct game modes:

  • Player vs. Player
  • Player vs. CPU
  • Tournament: Here you can pick one of the 8 characters and fight through four different locations with 8 fighters and become the boss on the street.

There are three game speed settings(slow, normal, fast) and three skill levels of the CPU opponents(easy, normal, hard) that can be set.

Every of the 8 characters has at least three special moves. All special moves are mostly executed by the same joystick/gamepad button and exactly which move a character performs depends on the distance the character is away from his target/opponent. Also the controls for the fighters are different - push up on the joystick and one fighter will jump another will kick.
