The Fightin' Spirit wiki last edited by fiye on 05/17/14 02:51PM View full history

Overview

Fightin' Spirit developed in 1996 by Light Shock and published by neo Software is a fighting game similar to Street Fighter II. It was first released for the enhanced Amiga machines(namely Amiga 1200/4000) as an AGA version and later ported to the Amiga 500 as an ECS version. The CD32 version is identical to the AGA version. The AGA and CD32 versions support 256 on-screen colors at a resolution of 320x256 instead of the 32 on-screen colors at a lower resolution used in the ECS version. Apart from that, there are no big differences between the three versions at all.

Gameplay

In Fightin' Spirit you have the choice between ten main plus two hidden fighters with their special moves and various attack styles. The two hidden characters(Jenshi Yamamoto and Shiro Asuka) can be enabled by a cheat. Every fighter has four special moves which can be executed by a certain joystick/pad combination. The characters are accompannied by their various attractive backgrounds and animations. You can either fight in a VS battle(single fight against an human opponent), a team match or a tournament(up to eight human players can join a tournament). But the most interesting part is to fight in the story mode. Here you can pick one of the characters and join the Supreme Warriors Tournament where you can defeat Jenshi Yamamoto, the boss of the Hikawa secret organisation.
