This is the third and final installment of the Art of Fighting series and it
is a slight overhaul from the first two games. Ryo and Robert return but with
an all new cast of fighters. Kasumi Todoh, Rody Brits, Karmen Cole, Lenny
Creston, Koh San Wang, Jin Fu Ha, Sinclair, and Wyler. Out of the new cast,
only Kasumi Todh has made an appearance in a fighting game outside of Art of
Fighting 3 (King of Fighters and SNK vs Capcom: Chaos).

Trivia: This time around the story centers around Robert Garcia instead of the
Sakazakis. It's like an AOF gaiden.

Robert meets up with his childhood friend, Freia Lawrence. There is a strange
drug going around and it gives the user superhuman strength but there are some
side effects that deforms the user as you will see what happens to Wyler.


A button = Punch
B button = Kick
C button = Strong Attack
D button = Taunt

You fight a certain amount of opponents. Each character has their own final
boss. Most of them is against Wyler. Kasumi and Jin Fu Ha's last fights are 
against Ryo. Karmen Cole's last fight is against Robert.

Each special move used will use up spiritual energy. The more spiritual energy
you have then the move effective and powerful the move will be. As the spirit
energy winds down, projectiles will be smaller and physical specials have less
range. You need to hold an attack button to regain spiritual energy. You can
also lower an opponent's spiritual energy by taunting them with the D button.


Each character has a set of special moves in addition to the normal attacks
given to them. They are executed by moving the joystick in a certain sequence
and pressing the appropiate attack button.

Sinclair has no throw


The final boss in Art Of Fighting 3. He works on perfecting a powerful elixir 
that was originally developed by his father and Freia Lawrence's father. 
However, the essential data needed for completing it was taken by Freia's 
father when the partnership broke up. Wyler believes this action is the cause 
of his father becoming destitute and even the cause of his death. Wyler hires 
the private investigator partners Rody Birts and Lenny Creston to find her. 
Wyler finds Freia, though seemingly without the help of the private eyes he 
hired. He completes the elixir and takes it himself, turning into a large Hulk

child-like state.
