Here's another game that I hadn't seen or played
until I looked through Gamebase 64 to see what I could
crazy hack... and because I was working through
Silverbird budget titles, I decided to hit on this one.
Street Warriors is your
typical, run-of-the-mill, beat-em-up but unfortunately
it lacks some soul. After creating the crazy hack for
this game, I sent it to Frank Gasking and Roy Fielding
to see and Roy summed it all up with the following
The premise of the game is okay, but the fun factor
is very low. It's not very playable and is quite
buggy. It was all a bit samey with fighting that was
almost as bad as the shit fighting I coded in
What I did like was the credits system, wherein you
could spend you credits to upgrade. That was a nice
touch. Just a shame the upgrades didn't make the
gameplay any more fun.
On level 2, I had to use your level skip cheat to
proceed, as one of the enemies ended up just outside
the play area in the diagonal bit and I could not
reach them. What we in the business call a "tech
hang". So, I cheated and progressed to level 3.
If you get to level 5 without a bomb, it ends the
game after showing the text "You need a bomb!" LOL.
Would have been nice to be forewarned that I should
make the purchase or given me the option to buy a
bomb at the point.
With better graphics
and gameplay (maybe pick up and throw mechanics and
better AI), it would have been decent.
here's the ending...
The beginning of
Someone insists on
throwing bottles at you!
Further along the
Job complete. The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I created a crazy hack for this game that has 28 extra
in-game features; one of them being the game ending. You
can download the crazy hack from the link area above.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have acquired the bomb from the previous shop
and made your way to the end of Level 5, the ending
sequence kicks in with an explosion! The Boss is gone
and the ending message reads: "WELL DONE. YOU HAVE
DESTROYED THE BOSS."
