    Welcome to another one of my Terry guides. Yes, no one needs a guide for him
    in Wild Ambition, cause he´s very strong and not too hard to play, but I was
    bored, so I typed this faq up. Oh well.
    Fatal Fury Wild Ambition is the first polygonal FF game. It runs on SNK´s
    Hyper Neo Geo 64 hardware. I still plan on buying a Hyper setup, if I do,
    prepare for faqs about some Hyper games and/or the Hyper itself.
    I only played the PlayStation version of Wild Ambition, so I´m sorry if any
    of the things here doesn´t work on the arcade version. But as far as I know,
    there are no differences at all.

    Ver. 0.9  - 13.10.99/1.30 a.m. - I was bored, so I wrote this guide.
    About Terry in Wild Ambition
    He is not too different from his RB2 incarnation. He still possesses easy
    combo abilities and the two-part command attack Power Dunk. Overall, one
    of the strongest characters in the game, also very recommended for beginners.
