Sango Fighter game description
Sango Fighter is a versus fighting game set in the Three Kingdoms era in China. The player can choose between five different characters from the time period, and fight other characters in either a one-on-one combat or a story mode.
The story is loosely based on real historical events of the Three Kingdoms era: towards the end of the Han Dynasty, China was controlled by the Emperor Ling, who was in turn controlled by ten of his servants in the royal palace. This created a convenient atmosphere for bandits, and the land was in turmoil. Then the Emperor ordered the ten dukes to take it on themselves to restore peace in the land, but the dukes instead fought amongst themselves. Finally, the duke Cao Cao took the Emperor captive and he now controls the realm. The player, however, must use five fighters to take on Cao Cao’s forces and restore equilibrium to the land.
Sango Fighter plays with one punch and one kick button, limiting the variety of normal attacks the player can execute. However, it otherwise controls almost identically to a traditional 2D fighter, where pressing “up” causes the player’s combatant to jump and pressing the direction away from the opponent causes him to block.
Special attacks such as energy projectiles, body-launching moves and otherwise unique strikes are executed with a combination of directional presses and an attack button.
In addition, backing away and blocking also increase a special meter underneath the player’s life bar. As this meter fills, it will increase the potency of special attacks – such as increasing the size and power of projectiles.
