1) INTRODUCTION
Hi, welcome to my FAQ for the Genesis/Mega Drive
version of Fatal Fury. Fatal Fury first
appeared in arcades in 1991 and was one of SNK's
first fighting games. Problem was, it was quite
average and compared to Street Fighter 2, it
looked quite dated. In 1993, Takara made versions
for the Super Nintendo and Genesis/Mega Drive.




2) STORY
The story for the game is set in South Town, where
Geese Howard has taken over and set up another
"King of Fighters" tournament. This time though,
3 new challengers have entered, who are Terry
Bogard, Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi. Terry and
Andy are up for a bit of Geese smashing since
he killed Terry and Andy's father, Jeff Bogard, 10
years a go. Will they be able to beat the other
fighters for a chance to fight Geese?




3) CONTROLS
Fatal Fury has 3 main attack buttons:

A: Punch
B: Kick
C: Throw

On the D-pad:
Up: jump
Up toward: Jump forward
Forward: Move right
Down: Duck
Down back: Block whilst ducking
Back: Move left/block
Up back: JUmp back

To throw, hold either back or forward whilst
pressing the C button.




4) GAME PLAY

Fatal Fury is a fighting game. Each fighter has
an energy bar, when it gets depleted completely
that fighter is knocked out and the round goes
to the other player. Fatal Fury uses the "best
2 of 3" rounds format Win 2 rounds and you 
win the fight. If a time over happens, the
fighter with the most health left in their
energy bar will win the round. A double KO
can happen if both fighters KO each other at
the same time (doesn't happen that often)

The main feature of Fatal Fury is the
plains system. During a fight, most stages
have 2 plains that you can leap around from
one to another, as can the opponent. This means
you can attack an opponent by leaping from
one plain to the other.




5) MENU

When you first start the game up, there is
a short intro and then the title screen comes up, 
press start. You'll then be in the menu, which has 
several options:

1P GAME START
VS GAME START
OPTIONS


1P GAME START
This is the story mode, where you can play as either
Terry, Andy or Joe and take on CPU controlled
fighters.


VS GAME START
When you go into this, another 3 options come up:

1P VS 2P
1P VS COM
COM VS COM


1P VS 2P
For 2 players


1P VS COM
Lets a player take on randomly chosen CPU
controlled fighters.


COM VS COM
Watch the CPU fight.


OPTIONS
In here there are several options to mess around with:

LEVEL
TIME LIMIT
BGM
CONTROL
TEST
EXIT


LEVEL
Chose how difficult the game is in the story mode. You
can have either easy, normal or hard.


TIME LIMIT
Choose how long each round will be, you can have either
30, 60 or 90.


BGM
Choose to have the music on or off in the game.


CONTROL
In here you can change the pad settings, as well as
if you want to have special moves on. You can
also choose how many rounds there are per fight.


TEST
In this menu you can listen to any music, effect
or voice used in the game.


EXIT
Have fun guessing what happens when you choose this.




6) CUT STUFF/CHANGED STUFF
In the transition from arcade to Genesis/Mega Drive, a
lot of stuff simply had to be cut out completely as
they didn't have enough space to fit everything on.
Here is a list of everything they cut out in
this version of the game:

*The 2 on 1 fight mode
*The bonus games
*The character Billy Kane
*The character Hwa Jai
*The SD character walking around between fights
*The screen showing your fighter falling out of a
window if you lose to Geese.
*The ending was also cut down.


They also changed a bit of stuff as well:

*Michael Max's stage has 2 plains in this version.
In the arcade, it only had one.

*They changed quite a few of the move commands, as well.
Andy's fireball, for instance, had the DPM+P command
in the arcade, in this version it is QCB+P.

*All of the sound voices for special moves were re-done
in this version.

*Billy Kane can be seen on Richard's stage.

*Hwa Jai can be seen on Duck's stage. He replaces where
Richard stands in the arcade version.

*Terry's power wave looks different.

8) STORY MODE

When you play the one player mode, you are in the
story mode where you can play as either Terry, Andy
or Joe. After picking a character you pick a place to
fight first. You can choose from either Duck King, Richard
Meyer, Tung Fu Rue or Michael Max.

RICHARD MEYER (In the manual his surname is spelt "Myer"
This guy jumps around a lot, but just crouch and kick a lot
to win. If he uses his spider kick attack, use a projectile
with Andy, or the burning knuckle as Terry. With Joe try 
the slash kick.


TUNG FU RUE
When you fight start the fight, his small form is easy to beat.
He usually uses his flying wheel kick special a lot and watch
out for his throw which he will try at close range. When he is
big (monster), don't do any projectile moves -he always
counters them with his own. When he does the flying spinning
clothes line, duck.


DUCK KING
Duck likes to spin attack you a lot, but projectiles should
be able to beat him easily.


MICHAEL MAX
Punching is Max's game. He will also often use his hurricane
uppercut whenever you do a projectile attack so watch out.


RAIDEN
This large fellow has some nasty throw techniques to look out
for, and the rocket attack can be hard to avoid. Try ducking
it and then getting a hit in.


GEESE HOWARD
The final opponent likes to use his violent wave a lot, so try
jumping it. He can also counter your moves and throw you if he
wants. Try to land hits in after you jump his projectile and
he is recovering from it.


NOTE: Since 2 fighters are not in the game, someone at Takara
had the bright idea of having the normal playable characters
challenging you to a fight. It happens randomly after fighters 1,
2, 3 or 4.

TERRY BOGARD
Uses his power wave a lot and can do a lot of damage with his
burning knuckle special. Try throws on him as often as you can.


ANDY BOGARD
Like Terry, Andy uses his projectile a lot. If you jump at him
he will usually do his shotgun kick or dragon punch. Again, try
throwing him a lot.

JOE HIGASHI
Joe will normally use all 4 of his special attacks a lot, 
especially the tiger kick and hurricane kick. Throw him around as
often as you can.




9) CHEATS

GEESE HOWARD CODE:
Hold left whilst selecting the VS GAME START option. With left held
down, press start, then choose which mode of VS fight you want.
Geese will now be a selectable character. You can only use him
in the vs. modes though.


EXTRA CONTINUES CODE:
When you lose a fight, you go to the continue screen. You start off
with just 3 continues. However, if you press A, B C and UP all at the
same time you get an extra continue, which is nice. You can do this
as many times as you want although the most you can have at any one
time is nine.


SELECT CPU OPPONENT IN 1P VS COM MODE:
Usually in the player vs. CPU mode, the CPU will randomly select a
character for you to fight against. However, whilst highlighting
the 1P VS COM, hold the C button on pad 2. With C held down on pad
2, press start on pad 1. You'll now go into the character select
screen, and you can choose who you want to fight by using pad 2 to
move through the fighters.


SELECT FIGHTERS IN CPU VS CPU MODE:
Usually when you go on the CPU VS CPU option, the CPU will choose the
fighters. However, highlight CPU VS CPU and hold down the C
button on pads 1 and 2 and with those held down, press start. You can
now choose the fighters you want to watch fight each other.


EXTENDED ENDING:
Complete the game under the hard setting without using a continue.




10) MY THOUGHTS
In the end, this game isn't that good. Too much stuff has been taken out
and the fact is, in the arcade Fatal Fury was average and it's a lot
worse on the Genesis/Mega Drive. Go get the sequel instead, that's
miles better.




11) CREDITS
Me, for bothering to make this thing in the first place.
You, for bothering to read it.
