- TRIVIA -
Released in July 1989.
Also released as 'Crime Fighters [2-Player model]'.
Some bosses' character design in this game seem to have been inspired by popular horror movies, this seems true for three bosses in particular :
Stage 2 Boss : A parody of Jason Voorhees from 'Friday the 13th movie' series.
Stage 4 Boss : A distant parody of Leatherface from 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' movie series.
Stage 5 Boss : A parody of Freddy Krueger from 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' movie series.
The dying pose that the Stage 7 boss does seems to have been inspired by the movie poster from the 1986 film Platoon.
King Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Konami Game Music Collection Vol.2 - KICA-1016) on 21/08/1990.
- UPDATES -
There are quite a few differences between the 4-Player version and the 2-Player versions of the same game :
4-PLAYER VERSION :
* This is a 2-button game (punch & kick).
* Character's energy is represented by a numerical hit point value which is always on countdown to zero. Additional hit points may be added by inserting more coins into each player's corresponding coin slot.
* Characters can use a reversal kick which is automatically activated if an opponent is behind you as you press the kick button. This kick knocks down enemies (except bosses) with a single hit!
* The gun has limited ammo, however it is possible to pick it up again if an enemy knocks it off your hand. Also each gunshot is as strong as 3 punches or kicks and knocks down most enemies in one shot.
* You can play the extra stage (enemy boss revenge) more than once.
2-PLAYER VERSIONS :
* Commonly seen as a 2-button game (punch & kick) but actually is a 3-button game (can be confirmed in the game's test mode).
* Character's energy is represented by a life-bar which only decreases with enemy attacks.
* There is a timer as well as a credit counter.
* The 3rd button is a reversal attack, which works as another kick button since you can use a pretty effective 3-hit combo (back kick, back kick, roundhouse kick). However you can't use this button to kick downed opponents.
* The gun has unlimited ammo, however you will lose it permanently if an enemy knocks it off your hand. Also the gun is now just as weak as a normal punch or kick and it takes 3 consecutive shots to knock down a normal enemy.
* You can play the extra stage (enemy boss revenge) only once.

- TIPS AND TRICKS -
* When completing the game + BOSS stage, the game starts from the beginning; but you can take a weapon (eg. gun) from one level to the next (you don't lose it when completing one stage)! which means all bosses are really easy to finish.
* Unlimited Credits: Successfully complete the entire game two consecutive times.

P.S. I beat this Game 15 Mins Ago now Vendetta is Next and yes the two Sequels are much better Games, but this one wasn't that Bad since it is the First in the Series.

This game isn't just hard, it's CHEAP and HORRIBLE. Thankfully it's two sequels Vendetta and Violent Storm are much better games and classic beat 'em ups on their own right!
