Joy Mech Fight © 1993 Nintendo.
Joy Mech Fight is a fighting game by Nintendo. The story starts in a laboratory where two scientists, Dr. Iwan Warunatchi and Dr. Ritoru ?mon, have been busy working on powerful humanoid robots. But the friendship between the two men is stained when Dr. Iwan steals seven prototypes and decides to take over the world. From his refuge tower, he terrorizes the townspeople and wreaks havoc on the streets. Dr. Ritoru reprograms a pink comedy-actor (and goofy looking) robot called Sukapon (also known as Skapon) and sends him to face his evil arch nemesis and fight his army of robots one at the time. Each area of the game poses different challenges and provides each time eight robots to fight against. Interestingly, Dr. Ritoru will be able to reprogram the first seven robots (Honoo, Tiger, Neo, Senj?, Sasuke, Eye and Giant) and build the team that will give the player the best chance of success. Each robot starts off with a life bar (located at the bottom of the screen) and two hearts. After each knockout, the winner regains some life whereas the other opponent loses a heart but regains a full life bar. Robots can jump, kick, punch and block attacks - each one comes with special attacks such as claws, sparks, drills and so forth. Button combinations trigger all kind of grab, sweep, fireball, beams, suplex and sliding attacks. Joy Mech Fight features a story mode (with auto-save), several versus modes (including a 'COM vs COM') and a grand total of thirty six different robots.
