    Overview

    Ken vs Ken in an alternate universe
    Ken vs Ken in an alternate universe

    Body Blows is a title born out of the quality of the Amiga port of Street Fighter II. Upon the Amiga port of SFII being released Team 17 realized that the port was of low quality and this now left them with a hole in the Amiga market that, with the right game, they could exploit. Body Blows was the result of this.

    Body Blows is as classic a SFII clone as you can possibly get and many moves for the titles main two characters (Nik and Dan) are clones of Ryu and Ken's moves from the Street Fighter series. One of the key achievements Team 17 reached when developing Body Blows is that it is one of the first titles that could run on every Amiga ever made giving the game a large player base.

    Body Blows was followed up by Body Blows Galactic and then Ultimate Body Blows. Both of which contained more than the 11 characters found in the original Body Blows.
