You've got to be joking. Come on, Domark, what are you playing at? I know the Spectrum doesn't have the graphic capabilities of 16-bit machines but its games don't have to be this bad. Read Review
Although a touch awkward at first, character control soon becomes second nature and beating the living blazes out of the computer, or even better a friend, is very satisfying. Read Review
Excellent intro animation screens set the scene for an excellent conversion against all the odds. One of the few two player games out that is just as much fun played alone. Read Review
A simplistic but largely enjoyable beat-'em-up which owes much to International Karate. Read Review
Make yourself very happy... leave Pit-Fighter on the shelf. I've scarcely recovered from the shock. Read Review
Pit-Fighter - The World's favourite illegal sport, is back for another season, this time in more locations and more popular than ever before. Join Ty, Kato and Buzz in a no holds barred brawl against eight different opponents, all of whom have their own techniques and methods of foul play.
A game for one or two players, Pit-Fighter is a battle to the death in an attempt to become the new Pit-Fighting world champion. You have the choice of being one of three fighters:
You can select your chosen fighter from the title screen in the game. In a two-player game, you may, if you wish, select the same two fighters.
Your task is to defeat each of the seven different fighters who stand between you and the final duel, the Championship Match, against the Ultimate Warrior. Every third match you face is a grudge match, where in two player mode you will fight the second human player, in one player mode you must face a computer-controlled clone of yourself.
Bonus points are awarded at the end of each round for Knock Outs. A KO is awarded to the player who delivers the final blow to the opponent.
Along the way you will find various objects strewn around the floor of the pit which you may pick up and use against your opponent - you can even try picking up and throwing your opponents.
The objects you will find in the pit are:
Throwing Stars/Crates/Kegs and Barrels
Stand a distance from your opponent and use the 'punch' move to throw the weapons. They can only be used once unless they miss their intended receiver, in which case they will fall to the floor to be used again.
Sticks - Use the "punch" move to crack the stick against your opponent. The stick will break after a few hits.
Inside some of the barrels you will find power pills. When you see one of these fall out, grab it immediately. The lucky owner of the power pill will have, for a limited time only, extra powers which double the power of their blows and halve the power of their opponent's blows.
At the end of each round you will be awarded bonus points according to how you performed in that round.
The bonuses are a Fight Purse, a standard amount awarded for each round, a KO Bonus, for how many KOs you achieved in the round and a Brutality Bonus for how brutal you were in the round.
Without the Fire Button pressed, your fighter will move in one of the eight directions.
With Fire Button Pressed:
Up/Left - Special Move, Up - Jump, Up/Right - Jump Kick
Left - Defend Punch
Left/Down - Pick Up, Down - Duck, Right/Down - Kick
These moves apply when you are facing right, the controls are reversed when facing left.
Double tap the joystick in the direction you are currently facing to evade; very useful for getting out of tight spots.
Player 1: Joystick or keys. Player 2: Joystick or keys.
In a two player game, one player must play on the keyboard, one on the joystick.
128K users, use Loader.
Due to the size of Pit-Fighter, a multi-load system has been incorporated to load additional data at certain points in the game. Please leave the game tape in at all times. Start and stop the tape according to the on-screen instructions.
