    Following the success of its soon to be first fighting game franchise known as
    Fatal Fury/Garou Densetsu, SNK decided to release another soon to be fighting
    game franchise known as Art of Fighting/Ryuuko no Ken. It introduces us to Ryo
    and Robert Sakazaki. This was the first fighting game to use taunts. Taunts are
    actually useful in this series as it lowered the opponents' spirit meter thus
    lessend the effect of their special moves.
    Art of Fighting and its characters are trademarks of SNK n' all copyrights

    The story begins in 1978. Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia and Ryo's sister,
    Yuri have lived in their dojo alone after the disappearance of the dojo master
    Takuma Sakazaki. One day while Ryo and Robert were out training, Mr. Big and
    a group of his thugs had kidnapped Yuri to lure Ryo and Robert into a trap.
    A button = Punch
    B button = Kick
    C button = Hard Punch or Kick (depends on if A or B was hit first)
    D button = Taunt
    Hold A, B or C to charge up spirit meter.
    Dash = f,f
    Backdash = b,b
    Dash Jump, f,f, uf
    Jump = up, u, or uf
    Crouch=db,d,or df
    Block= b while being attacked high or standing, or db while being attacked low.
    Body Toss = b or f + C when near opponent.
    Wall Jump Attack = Jump towards wall, C
    Back Attack = jump over enemy and press C or d + C
    In a 1-player game, you play as either Ryo Sakazaki or Robert Garcia. You fight
    eight opponents. Each time you defeat two opponents, you get to play one out of
    three bonus games to increase your spirit meter, increase your life meter, or
    learn the Haoh Shouko Ken (can only be played once if mastered).
    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.
