Game Introduction

What is so addicting about this multiplayer wrestling game is that physical activity immerses you in the gameplay. The game's "Action" button (and the characters position from the opponent) controls all the special moves. Action becomes furious when a player's character pins or has been pinned by an opponent. The game's "ring side" commentary descibes the various moves and holds occuring on screen to add to the excitement. The game has eight different characters to choose from: Kamikaze Ken, The Maui Mauler, San Antonio Smasher, Conan The Great, El Condor, Saturn Six, Bigfoot Joe and Alan The Empire.

One player can choose two of those wrestlers for his or her own tag team or two players can each choose to be one of the wrestlers on the same tag team depending on whether the game is played competively or cooperatively. There can be up to four players that compete in a single match.
