Hi all, it's almost June.  Guess what!?  I've got my 'arcade' room almost set up, to a point where I can actually sit down in front of my Amigas to play games!!!  I am keen to start up GOTHEM again, and plan to post a couple of new games this weekend!

May and June 2023 - Body Blows AGA
« on: May 06, 2023, 08:39:31 am »
AGA Game of the Month for May (and June) 2023, is Body Blows!

Around the time of the Amiga version of Street Fighter 2, Amiga specialists Team 17 came up with a similar one on one beat 'em up, designed around the machine's strengths and weaknesses.

In one-player mode you have four characters to choose from - brothers Dan and Nik play identically, Lo-Ray is a Buddhist Monk, and Junior a failed boxer.

The opponents include a Ninja warrior, a businessman whose post-fight catchphrase is 'I'm sorry about that', and a thin Spanish girl. The backdrops feature lots of color and animation, varying from wrestling rings to building sites and beaches.

The control is designed around one-button controllers, with special moves generated by pushing in a certain direction and pressing fire, and one 'super special' move by holding fire for a few seconds. The real skill is in combining these moves effectively.

Information:
  • Amiga Hardware: AGA
  • Release Year: 1994
  • Disks: 3
  • WHDLoad: Yes
  • Players: 1 or 2, Simultaneous
  • Publisher: Team 17

Please refer to the 'Game of the Month Rules and Participation' post for information on how to participate!  Good Luck!

* To qualify: Play 1 player on the AGA version on an AGA machine or equivalent emulator.  Do not use keys, passwords or cheats.

Not sure if it is just me, the emulation, or how the game was meant to be played but wow this was fast..  just mashed the controller to get a score.  Played as the Ninja (of course) and got 57100 on my A500 mini (A1200 spec).  Played single player, AGA version.
