KOF vs SF? This could be the worst arcade game ever...
MAME dev Haze, has shared info about an Arcade game called 'Jue Zhan Tian Huang' in which, literally, million clones of all the Street Fighter 2 characters attack your KOF character for hours!
MAME dev, Haze, has shared a few details about a pretty bad Arcade game he just ran into, called 'Jue Zhan Tian Huang'.
This is NOT a clone of any SF or KoF game. In this one -literally- clones of all the Street Fighter 2 characters attack you for hours. Also... your main character is from The King of Fighters?!
Apparently, this one is Megadrive / Genesis based, and was built using the Streets of Rage engine, but it looks like this is an original creation.There are good beat ‘em ups, and there are bad beat ‘em ups, and then there are beat ‘em ups which are physically painful to play because they’re so badly designed. This game, known as “Jue Zhan Tian Huang” is definitely the latter. The entire game consists of either 4 enemies on screen at a time, all being clones of Street Fighter 2 characters, with seemingly random amounts of health, and an occasional boss fight against cyborg type enemies and a token SF2 character who will respawn until the boss is dead. There are no weapons, there appear to be 2 types of destructible objects throughout the entire game. The background are as generic as you can get, with an unhealthy liking for lift levels, it’s buggy, feels half finished in places, and will have you screaming ‘stop, stop right now’ by level 4, but luckily for you there are 8 levels broken into even more stages.
And yep, it's pretty bad...
Check out how it looks (more at the website linked below):This could possibly displace Dragons Lair as the worst ever arcade game I’ve played …. I’m not making a video because that would involve playing it again.
