If you’ve been following this series for a while now, you know that we cover whatever we can for as long as it’s on the retro spectrum. Consoles, games, and even events, we’ve got you covered. That being said, you should also know that we love action, especially in our retro games.
It takes center stage whenever a new title emerges, which happens today. So sit tight, and let’s roll!
Ocean Software dropped a classic beat-em-up for the Amstrad CPC, C64, and ZX Spectrum. And this was way back in 1988. Renegade was an action-packed classic with kick-ass gameplay where you and a friend could take the fighters out for revenge against a kingpin named Mr. Big. Now that may be in the past, but if you have an Amstrad CPC, you can be excited to know that a new release called Renegade Reloaded is coming out soon. And it is all the classic features the old school title has and more.
This version has various new features, like scrolling that was barely in the classic Renegade. We also get great new graphics, some new animation, and a different, more banger of a soundtrack. Geco is keeping things under wraps as the reboot is still a work in progress, but we’re keeping tabs on this one.
It is moving on to some more up close and personal combat. We have a little something for the Amstrad CPC 128K users. If you’re a fan of fighting games or part of the FGC, we know you’ve got your eyes peeled for Mighty Street Fighter, a game that’s been in the works and looks like a ton of fun. It’s a different take on Street Fighter and sports, a look that’s closer to the 1993 classic Mighty Final Fight. It looks pretty badass.
There isn’t much to say about the game, as most news is on Twitter. So far. It looks to have eight playable characters from the original Street Fighter franchise, many fighting styles, and even the ever-popular “Hadouken.” It’s a game worth looking out for, and once the action intensifies will be right smack in the middle of it!
Now for an all-improved, action classic coming out from the Commodore Amiga. Prototron is working on an enhanced version of the classic arcade game Final Fight for anyone who's picked up and enjoyed to beat-em-up. While the original game didn’t get much love in the 90s’, this modern remaster could change everyone’s perception. This might be because Prototron gave the game’s code an almost complete rewrite of what we’ll get as a fresher experience featuring a two-player mode with fan favorites Guy and Cody.
Aside from some new music, a few new features are in the works for the final game. This includes smoother gameplay. The game Sprite’s flipping if you face a different direction and some graphical improvement to suit the more modern fields we just might be craving for. We’ve come a long way since the Mega Drive and SNES, so this Commodore Amiga version might be the update we need. So lets all Final Fight enhance come out soon.
