Kishin Douji Zenki FX: Vajura Fight (PC-FX)
I can choose either of these characters to play as. I'll start with the red haired guy, he looks ready to hit something.
I wish I understood a word of what the characters are saying, but they're all speaking Japanese. It feels like everyone was invited to the story except me.
That's interesting, it's a one on one fighting game, but it seems I've only got three buttons: guard, attack and jump. If the guy's got any special moves, then I haven't found them yet.
I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation for all of this. But the dialogue's still all in Japanese so I can't understand it. And I'm not learning Japanese just so I can figure out a game where I punch anime wolf monsters.
Purple monsters though, these I understand. Purple monsters get a kick.
After I walked to the far right of the level, I reached a dead end. The arrow said go up, but no matter how much I double jumped I couldn't get onto the roof.
And then after watching a youtube video, I learned you could get up there by jumping onto a big obvious rock in the background. Duh.
I've been trying to use the guard button to block his attacks, but I'm doing a crappy job of it. Plus it seems that even if I time it right I still take damage.
Is the day saved yet? Can I go home?
Is that bird carrying a ninja underneath or does it just have two heads? Either way it's very well animated.
Huh, the enemy has bird feet. And the bird has no feet. It's like these two were made for each other.
SOME EPIC ACTION LATER.
The whole game is like this, small detailed scenes with unique charm instead of sprawling levels with repeated content.
Yeah I can easily recommend this one. I liked playing it, I want to play more of it, and I'm not even a big fan of this genre. Plus it's got two player co-op, and I later found out you can use the mode switches to access three special moves, which would have been nice to know earlier. Not a bad first impression for the PC-FX really, it's definitely proven it can throw some sprites around the screen.
