      INTRODUCTION
o---------------------o

This is the second installment of the Art of Fighting/Ryuuko no Ken series. You
get to play as the man who was originally behind the Mask as Mr. Karate in the
first AOF named Takuma Sakazaki (Ryo and Yuri's father). You also get to play
as Yuri and everbody from AOF 1 except for Ryuhaku Todoh whom did not appear in
the game. There are also two brand new characters: Eiji Kisargi and Temjin.

Trivia: This series takes place over 10 years before the Fatal Fury series as
evidence by the young appearance of Geese Howard and Jeff Bogard was also still
alive at the time.

        STORY
o--------------------o

After the defeat of Mr. Karate, he unmasks himself and is revealed to be the
father of Ryo and Yuri, Takuma Sakazaki. He reveals that he was forced by Geese
Howard to fight Ryo and Robert to ensure no harm would come to Yuri who was
kidnapped the year before. Now the Sakazakis along with Kyokugenryu student,
Robert Garcia seek revenge against Geese Howard (final boss of Fatal Fury/Garou
Densetsu 1).

        SYSTEM
o--------------------o

You fight 8 opponents in total. If you defeat three opponents then a new move
is available in total. If you manage to fight well enough then you get to face
a younger version of Geese Howard.

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.

o--------------------o
      MOVELISTS
o--------------------o

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.
