This game is known in Japan as 'Bare Knuckle II - Shitouhe no Chinkonka' (translates from Japanese as 'Bare Knuckle II - Death Struggle Requiem').

In an early beta version of the game, Axel's super moves feature an uppercut attack and a spinning roundhouse kick that is strikingly similar to that of Ken and Ryu from Capcom's "Street Fighter" series.


This Mega Play version has a higher level of difficulty than the original, you cannot receive any extra lives through points, and all 1ups are replaced by money bags worth 1000 points.


Rear attack : press button-A and button-B simultaneously.
