Game Introduction

The game features the following WWF personalities: Hulk Hogan, Randy "Macho Man" Savage, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, The Ultimate Warrior, The Big Boss Man, The Honky Tonk Man, "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and Andre The Giant.

Game Play

Each player can select any two out of six wrestlers (including Hulk Hogan, Randy "Macho Man" Savage, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, The Ultimate Warrior, The Honky Tonk Man, and The Big Boss Man) for his or her tag team. A second player can either join player one's tag team or control the opposing team.

Antics can continue outside the ring where a table (good for 1, 2 or 3 uses depending on the machine's setting) may be used on your opponents' skulls. If you are outside of the ring, a computer controlled wrestler sometimes walks down the aisle and off of the game's screen and then returns with a folding chair (good for unlimited uses) seconds later.

There are two configurations (New York and Tokyo) where four victories are required for the title match against "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and Andre The Giant. When you reach the title match, you must win it in order for your team to become the champions. If you win, the screen displays a newspaper showing your tag team as the new champions.

The game ends after both configurations have been completed and both title matches have been won (a series of poses of the wrestlers are shown at the end.)

Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

If you are controlling The Big Boss Man and perform his signature wrestling move, position yourself to be behind your opponent when he gets up (he will be groggy) and walk into him. The opponent will automatically be thrown to the ropes and when he bounces off and comes running back, press the Punch button to once again perform The Big Boss Man's signature move. This process may be repeated an unlimited number of times until time expires.

Somewhere in the match when both opponents are in the ring, get the "legal" wrestler and throw im out of the ring. Then, take the "illegal" wrestler and knock him down and cover him. If you cover the illegal wrestler before the legal wrestler gets up on the outside, then you have performed the trick. The illegal wrestler will not kick out and the legal wrestler on the outside will not get up. The referee will simply count until twenty and you will win by count-out. This will not work if you cover the illegal wrestler after the legal wrestler gets up. He has to be lying on the outside of the ring.

MORE CHEATS: 1. In the first and second championship match you vs. Andre and DiBasie, if you win the match pin one of the other wrestlers, just as time is running out timing is difficult of course and the newspaper proclaiming your characters the new champions will have blank pictures.

2. When your character throws another over the top rope, you can press the A and B button at the same time...twice right in a row. The wrestler will jump over the top rope and splash the guy on the floor. Probably not news to most people who play this game....the news Your wrestler can fly, literally fly 12 way across the ring if you do this right. 1st throw your opponent over the top rope, back your player towards the middle of the ring run if your experienced like me , keep your wrestler lined up with the guy on the floor...Press A B twice and your guy will jump, no fly across the ring, over the top rope and splash the opponent. This works all the way until you cross the 12 way point of the ring. Damn cool to see the 350 lb big boss man jump and fly 12 way across the ring and land PERFECTLY on his opponent outside the ring. Good aim those wrestlers.3. Your site had an entry about a bug with andre being split in two. You can also do this, just as andre is leaving the ring, hook him with the MachoMan clothesline from the back. SOMETIMES andre and you will land backwards. SOMETIMES works in the regular direction too.4. Andre is easier to body slam outside of the ring.
