Streets of Rage™
Arcade games were released in a variety of genres: platform games, fighting games, sport games, and action games. Even though these games were released in an era when technology was not advanced, arcade games still proved to be a huge success. These games provided the foundation for games in the future.
Streets of Rage™ is a side-scrolling beat ‘em up released by Sega in 1991. It is the first installment of the Streets of Rage™ series which was followed by Streets of Rage 2™ and Streets of Rage 3™. The objective of the game is to fight your opponents and defeat them.
The gameplay is much like other fighting games. Enemies walk onto the screen from both sides, as well as occasionally appearing from other locations. The player must defeat each opponent to progress through eight locations or “rounds”. With the exception of Round-7, there is a boss battle at the end of every round with a disproportionately large enemy. You need to defeat these ‘bosses’ to move onto the next round.
The plot of the game revolves around three young police officers: Adam Hunter, Axel Stone, and Blaze Fielding. Their city has fallen into the hands of a secret criminal syndicate and no one is safe to walk alone in the streets. These three police officers decide to forgo their careers in legal law enforcement and put their lives on the line. They are without weapons, but each possesses great hand-to-hand combat abilities.
In Streets of Rage™, the special attack is assistance from a police car which will pull up at the level’s left and fire explosives, taking health from all enemies. The player is given one special attack per life or per level, with power-ups shaped like police cars giving another.
There are 8 rounds in the game. The player has to defeat the boss at the end of each round to move onto the next level. If the player loses all the lives, the game ends.
