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.

The third and final entry replaces one character and adds two hidden ones - no platform fighter before or since has offered better variety or gameplay. Too bad the music isn't as good, because some of the tracks are just plain awful.
