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

The game that started it all for modern fighting gaming though the crazw starts
with its sequel. Street Fighter 2 - The Worl Warrior. It was released in 1987
in the arcades and it was the first fighting game to introduce using the control
pad/joystick to excute special moves. In Streeft Fighter 2 and beyond, the moves
are easy to perform. But in Street Fighter 1, the moves were a total bitch to
pull off. More on that later. The game also introduces us to Ryu, Ken, Sagat,
Birdie, Adon, Gen, Eagle and to an extent Joe and Mike who fight each other at
the start of Street Fighter 2. Joe was the victor of that fight.

Fighting Street is the home version of Street Fighter 1 and it was the first
game released onto the Turbo-CD/PC-CD and it was even more of a bitch to play
the game than its arcade counterpart. The only good part of this game was the
enhanced music and sounds.

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

You play the role of Ryu who is travelling the world to participate in a fight-
ing tournament where he muust take on nine opponents on route to facing the
grand champion, Sagat. This is probably the only fighting game until King of
Fighters 12 came along where the tournament did not invlove any evil intentions
or connotations. It was just pure fighting. Ken on the other hand was in USA
participating in the local tournament thus he was not in the world tournament in
the storyline.

o--------------------o
    MEET THE CAST
o--------------------o

Ryu - He represents Player 1. Th this game, he has red hair and red slippers.
You guide him through ten opponents across the world.

Ken - He represents Player 2. He is a pallete swap of Ryu with blond hair and a
red gi, He does not have a headband or slippers. In the story, he is in the US
in a local tournament but can fight in the world tournament if he beats Ryu in a
1P vs 2P game.

o--------------------o
       CONTROLS
o--------------------o

What made this game horrible was the faulty control system. The original arcade
unit had two pressure sensitive buttons that the player whou hit. One for the
punches and one for the kicks. The strength of the attack depends on how hard
you pinded the button. This led nowhere with the game, so the game got converted
to the six-button system we are familiar with today. yet the buttons are still a
drag as the attack don't come out until they are released. This is because they
are based on the original pressure pad mechanism. The Fighting Street version is
based on a combination of both. Strength depends on how long a button was held
down before being released.

The controls are as follows depending on what version you are playing:


u = up
uf = up/forward
ub = up/back
b = back
f = forward
d = down
df = down/forward
db = down/back

Press u, uf, or ub to jump
Press d, df, or db to crouch
Press b to move backwards (away from opponent)
Press f to move forwards (towards opponent)
Press b to block attacks that aren't low
Press db to block low, non-air attacks

+Arcade (6-button)+
jab - Light Punch
Strong - Medium Punch
Fierce - Hard Punch
Short - Light Kick
Forward - Medium Kick
Roundhouse - Hard Kick

+Turbo CD+
II - Kick
I - Punch

The longer you hold the buttn the stronger the attacks listed above are when
released.

       MOVELIST
o--------------------o

Ryu and Ken have the same exact moves and they are executed by sweeping the
control pad/joystick in a specific motion followed by the button but as I said
before... They are a bitch to pull off compared to the sequels that follow. In
Street Fighter 1, they shout out the name of the move in English in the English
version, but in the Japanese version, they shout the move names as we know them
today.

Fireball (Hadouken): d, df, f + P

Fireball has Ryu/Ken thrust an actual fireball forward as opposed to the blue
flame encased over a shadow imprint of their forearms and hands in the sequel.
Ryu/Ken will shout "Fight Fire or Dark Fire". It does 40% damage.

Dragon Punch (Shoryuuken): f, d, df + P

Dragon Punch is a unblockable close range attack that can hit up to three times
where Ken/Ryu rise up from the ground with fist extended. It can also be used as
an anti-air attack. If all three hits connect, it's an automatic victory. Best
of all, it is invincible on the way up. Each hit is about more than 1/3 bar of
damage.

Hurricane Kick (Tatsumaki Senouu Kyaku): d, db, b + K

Hurricane Kick has Ryu/Ken spin in the air towards opponent slightly. It can hit
up to four times and can win the match if all four connect. Each hit is about
1/4 bar of damage.
