Game Introduction

The player controls Ryu blue, player 1, or Ken red, player 2. The countries rotate clockwise: Japan, United States Of America, China, England, and Thailand.

Each country has two different opponents who the player must face in two different fights. As follows:

  • Japan: Retsu and Geki
  • United States Of America: Joe and Mike
  • China: Gen and Lee
  • England: Birdie and Eagle
  • Thailand: Adon and Sagat

The player must defeat Sagat in order to win and finish the game. You can continue in all countries but Thailand. If you lose in Thailand, your game is over.

Game Play

Capcom's first one-on-one fighting game and the original six-buttons-per-player fighting title. Hidden special moves enabled the player, who could use either Ryu player 1 or Ken player 2, to throw Hadou-Ken, execute Tatsumaki Senpuu-Kyaku and Shoryuu-Ken. The players could also perform the standard moves that include jumping, standing and crouching along with strong, medium and weak punches and kicks.

Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

While fighting Mike, he must have a lower energy than yours. Now, push Down and Left together while you go to the lower left hand corner. Be still while the timer runs out.

You can knock an opponent out with one Shoryuu-Ken jumping uppercut. Each Shoryuu-Ken and fireball takes only 3 hits to knock out an opponent, but if you stand close enough to an opponent, sometimes you can get double or even triple hits. Therefore, if you get a triple hit, it will automatically knock out an enemy with full health with this one move. Against Gen, you can on a rare occasion knock him out in less than 3 seconds, sometime even 2. Since Gen is extremely fast and jumps into you a lot, if you start the fight off with an immediate Shoryuu-Ken, sometimes he will jump right into it and you will get either a triple hit and a knockout or a double hit, and immediately after he will charge back into it as you as you are coming down for the third hit. The triple and double hit also works with the Tatsumaki Senpuu-Kyaku or hurricane kick but not as often.

The birthplace of Street Fighter characters Ryu, Ken and Sagat. Also the birthplace of Adon, Gen, and Birdie from Street Fighter Zero also Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams.

This game was designed by Yoshiki Okamoto. Okamoto designed two games while at Konami: Time Pilot and Gyruss. He later went to Capcom where he also designed 1942, 1943 The Battle Of Midway, and Final Fight.

The title screen has several Capcom games listed on the brick wall: Avengers, Commando, Wings Legendary Wings, and Trojan.


The PCB board can be swapped to the other Street Fighter series games.


The dedicated versions of the game used special pneumatic controls that were connected directly to the game board via air hoses. Depending upon how hard the control was hit, the game would choose the type of hit the player character would perform. These controls wore out or would constantly require adjustment due to abuse.
