Game Introduction

A four-player simultaneous beat-em-up game based on the Sega System 32 arcade hardware. Four player-selectable Arabian-themed, anime-drawn heroes: Sinbat, Ramaya, Goldor and Datta fight through a number of levels to save the kidnapped Princess Luruna from the demonic magician Sheikh Sazabiss. The most interesting feature of Arabian Fight is the use of scaling.The sprites are huge,and as the player moves 'into' the screen,they decrease in size, increasing as you move 'out' of the screen.

Game Play

The gameplay of Arabian Fight is distinctly average. Once the appeal of the graphics has worn off, it becomes apparent that little time was spent in fine-tuning the gameplay, which is very repetitive. There is little variation as the player progresses, and the whole game has a rather rushed feel to it. It is very reminiscent of Sega's earlier DD Crew.
