Game Summary

4 player wrestling action.

Game Details

4 players simultaneously in a tag team free for all. Chairs, Double-teams, Biting, and Choking all allowed. Characters: The San Antonio Smasher, The Maui Mauller, Kamakazi Ken, Conan The Great, El Condor, Saturn Six, Big Foot Joe, and Alan The Emperor.

Two were rule breakers with the ability to choke/bite. All were diffrent weights which affected the moves they could do. All had diffrent move lists, again depending on weight -- large guys didn't dropkick, etc.

Controlls were a stick and three buttons, each a diffrent size according to the moves they could do. Small button: tag, pick up, whip to the ropes. Medium button: punch, kick, stomp, body slam. Big button: pile driver, suplex, back breaker, atomic drop.

Submission holds included bear hug, camel clutch, boston crab, figure four leg lock.

A commentator described the action by calling out the moves -- head butt, elbow smash, brain buster, back breaker, BIG body slam, pick him up just like he was a pencil, etc. Credits = health. When your health runs out, game over. Member Ratings / Comments
