Game Introduction

Players choose to control either the blonde fighter in the patriotic uniform or the dark-haired fighter in the white gi and black belt.

The object is to beat every opponent in the nation and win the championship. Some opponents are the same size as the player characters and some are twice as big. In some games, both players are in the same match and take on two different opponents at a time.

When an opponent begins to turn red, it means that he is getting weak. When you defeat your opponent, he is knocked out and then carried off in an ambulance to a hospital. Also, a girl from the crowd comes over to your character and then you proceed on to the next match.
