About Final Fight

Final Fight is a side-scrolling beat ’em up video game, set in a fictional Metro City. The player controls one of three characters: former pro wrestler and mayor Mike Haggar, his daughter’s boyfriend Cody or Cody’s best friend Guy. Each has his own fighting style and attributes. It can be played by up to two players simultaneously.

Plot

Crime rate reached alarming levels. However, since the election of pro wrestler turned politician Mike Haggar as the new Mayor, Metro City was changed and cleaned up drastically. Under his run, Haggar managed to suppress the crime rate of the city to its lowest points. While the citizens of Metro City were thankful for Haggar’s hard work in curbing crime, one gang, the Mad Gear gang, would not go down so easily.

Objective in the game

Your objective is to defeat the Mad Gear gang and rescue Haggar’s young daughter Jessica. Final Fight consists of six stages or “rounds”, as well as two bonus rounds. Each round takes place in a different section of Metro City such as the Slums and the Subway, with most rounds featuring more than one level. At the end of each round the player will face a boss character unique to that round.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System is a 16-bit home video game console developed by Nintendo. It was released in 1990 in Japan and South Korea, 1991 in North America, 1992 in Europe and Australasia (Oceania), and 1993 in South America.

Fun facts

The game was intended to become a sequel to Street Fighter (called Street Fighter ’89), but as the genre was switched to beat ’em up, the title was also changed (following the success of Double Dragon). Many elements from the game and its story were inspired by the 1984 film, Streets of Fire.

Tips and tricks

You can skip the last battle inside the subway train. Just jump onto the barrels in front of the control console and wait for the train to grind to a halt.

If you’re low on life and you’re about to defeat a boss, go after the boss not the goons, the moment he dies so do his minions.

Use the special move (jump and punch pressed simultaniously) only in emergencies! It costs lives and it leaves you wide open afterwards.

Fight less enemies

As you move forward, more enemies will show up. You should not move on until you kill the enemies you already have on the screen. There is an exception to this, however. Sometimes, if you can move really fast, some of the opponents will not be able to catch up with you and you will end up fighting less enemies.
