Axel, Adam and Blaze - ex-cops, the solution to punk pollution. The city's a war zone, and they're going out two at a time to give the gangs a kick in the guts. This is the ultimate in street combat. These fighters are martial arts maniacs with a battery of 40 individually controllable attacks - including jabs, head butts, and overhead kicks.

Although eclipsed by its later sequels, the original sports more moves and variety and has the techno soundtrack that made composer Yuzo Koshiro famous.
