                                 | 2. Game Info |
    
    Final Fight is a 2D beatem up that made its way to the Commodore 64 in 1991. 
    Although this port is heavily edited from the Arcade version due to the 
    hardware limitations, it's still enjoyable to the old school nostalgia fans.
    
    The game also features a 2 player copo on the same screen.
    
                                    | Ports |
    
    This port is missing the stage music but has a local copo mode and all three
    characters to choose from. The graphics were downgraded from the arcade/SNES
    version due to the system's limitations. You can also enable cheat codes
    directly from the start like infinite life and skipping stages.
    
    The game was ported to many platforms up to IOS in 2011. The best port is
    arguably Final Fight One for the Gameboy Advance as it includes the Industrial
    Area stage as well as Street Fighter Alpha version of Guy and Cody and other
    extras.
    
    Since this port comes on a commodore floppy, the load times are kinda long
    for an older games where no loading were presented at all. As a result,
    sometimes the game would crash when loading as well as the floppy disk itself
    fail due to time and treatment. A tape version is also available and is more
    common to find.
    
    List of Ports:
    
    . Final Fight      - SNES
    . Final Fight Guy  - SNES
    
    . Final Fight      - Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum and Amstrad
                         CPC
    
    . Final Fight      - Sharp X68000 (Japan)
    
    . Final Fight CD   - SEGA CD
    
    . Final Fight One  - Gameboy Advance
    
    . Final Fight      - IOS
    
    Other ports:
    
    Capcom Classics Collection, Final Fight: Streetwise and
    Final Fight: Double Impact.
    
    ===============================================================================
                                 | 3. The Basics |
    
    The object of the game is very simple, move forward while smashing enemies 
    and picking power ups along the way. A basic side scroller.
    
    There are two stage where you have to destroy objects instead of fighting
    people. One of them is destroying a car before the timer runs out as in
    Street fighter 2 while the other is moving forward destroying boards. Both
    of the stages are playable via copo as well as single player.
    
                                    | Options |
    
    Upon loading the game Disk, you will be presented with a few options that you 
    can turn on and off. These options are more of a cheat than options as they 
    help make the game easier. For a true challenge and arcade feel, make sure to 
    keep them all off.
    
    . Do you wanna kill the punks with 1 hit?
      (If yes then be sure to turn on life+!)
    
    . F1 - Unlimited Lives : NO/YES
    . F3 - Unlimited Credit: NO/YES
    . F5 - Unlimited Time:   No/YES
    . F7 - Smash Away!! - To start the game.
    
    ===============================================================================
                                    | Controls |
    
    The controls are very simple and straightforward.
    
                     Walk up
                        |
            Walk Left - O - Walk Right      
                        |
                    Walk Down
    
    
    Actions: 
    
    Grab: Walk into the enemy.
    Throw: After walking into an enemy, turn left or right.
    Punch: Punch enemies.
    Jump Kick: Jump and hit the punch key to kick in air.
    
    You can use the Sega Genesis controller out of the box without any
    modifications as the controller port fits and buttons work directly.
    I highly recommend playing this and other commodore 64 games using
    this controller as its comfortable to hold and play with.
    
    Even the Genesis's Arcade Stick works fine although the 3DO controller
    is not compatible eve though it has the same port.

    ===============================================================================
                             | Enemies and powerups |
    
    There are many types of enemies from the normal thugs to the powered up big 
    guys. Most of them have similar bar power with the exception of the big guys
    and the final boss who shoots at you.
    
    There is a bandit type who throws knives at you as well. All enemies handle 
    the same with jump kick is the best strategy.
    
    Power Ups range from weapons that can be used to a limit to health 
    regenerators. Some environment obstacles can be broken to obtain a 
    hidden pickup. 
    
    ===============================================================================
                                     | Stages |
    
    The basic of each stage is to get from the start to its finish killing 
    everyone in your path collecting powerups and not running out of lives.
    
    There are three exceptions.
    
    1. Car smash stage
    
    Similar to Street Fighter’s car smash. You have to destroy a car within a time 
    limit.
    
    2. Advertisement Boards smash stage.
    
    Same as the car stage except you will need to move forward smashing boards on 
    your way.
    
    3. Mini Boss
    
    A wrestling ring stage where you fight one enemy and no one else. Another
    stage is the Elevator. You fight people as the elevator keeps going up with
    Rolento from Street Fighter Alpha as a boss at the end.

    A: The only two places that come to mind are Amazon and eBay.
