Game Play

The gameplay is similar to other "Fatal Fury" games, but the energy bar for each character is now similar in function to Killer Instinct, where two energy bars are 'overlaid' on each other. The top bar is the yellow bar, which when depleted gives way to a red bar, which will flash when it reaches around 90 to 95 percent. This version also adds interactive backgrounds as well.
