Throwback Thursday: Streets of Rage (Sega Genesis) #tbt

Welcome to the beginning of a weekly post that I will do every thursday. Every thursday I will post about a retro game that I used to play when I was younger. Kind of nostalgia for me kind of thing

Streets of Rage was a beat'em up 2d side scroller where you choose among these 3 characters with different attack types. You can grab, punch, kick and grab items as you go through the levels. Best feeling was body slamming guys from behind into other enemies.

One of the cool things in the game was you get a certain amount of S uses. Which  would call in backup police car that would shoot artillery and clear the room. First player had a sucky ring of fire but second player had a machine gun that did wayyyyy more damage. So I would always give my brother the special picks ups lol.

I don't think we ever beat the game as it gets very long and you only get 3 lives with 3 continues and that definitely is not enough . Maybe if I had a genesis rom that gave infinite lives I could beat the game and see who the last boss is. Still, the game was fun and had a blast playing this growing up. Check out this vid of highlights. Actually.... after looking at this speed run we did beat this game multiple times haha. Anyway watch this speed run, only takes 30 minutes to beat...geeze
