Game Introduction

The game is set in 1999. It is a world grappling tournament. Eleven characters join the tournament to compete for the championship. You must fight your way up the tournament ladder and eventually defeat the current champion.

Game Play

The controls are very unique in this game. The two buttons, move left and move right, are what you use to move around the fighting area, and the joystick is what actually does the attacks. Pushing and holding both buttons at the same time results in your character blocking. Different directions result in different attacks, and different combinations of directions can give you a more powerful move, or a chain of weaker attacks. Getting a ring out does nothing, the game simply places the two opponents back in the middle of the ring to square off again, retaining the damage they have already taken.
