One Must Fall 2097 (MS-DOS)
Like Xenophage, the similarly PC exclusive mid-90s fighter I played earlier, One Must Fall 2097 is now free to download! The official site's long dead but you can find downloads at fan sites like X-Bot's OMF Universe, or www.omf2097.com.
Wait... I get a robot?
Did that guy just call me a pud? He's a pud!
Okay, I've got two buttons, punch and kick, I can't seem to block and I can't figure out any special moves.
Unlike Xenophage, the camera is staying zoomed out and there's no scrolling at all. This is the entire size of the level.
Which sounds like a great idea to me.
Yeah I know the Smash Bros games do exactly this and are awesome, but they have a lot more room to move around.
I was doing so well too.
Also this guy's stealing my fabulous kick technique. Unforgivable.
Oh fuck it, I'll just go and replay the entire game from the start on veteran difficulty. Or at least try to.
Good techno music on this level by the way.
You just sit there in your comfy chair and you nitpick and criticise and make jokes and you do nothing constructive!
Weirdly the game doesn't let me choose another character when I continue. I'm stuck with Steffan and the Jaguar mech until the end.
TWO OPPONENTS LATER.
This is like the Terminator fighting Optimus Prime, he's stomping all over me. This would probably be easier if I ever figured out how to block.
That definitely wasn't the worst fighter I've played on PC, but like I said before I've played Xenophage. Anyway, I've got no interest ever seeing it again. Next game.
