Battle K-Road (バトルクロード) is a one-on-one fighting arcade game released by Psikyo in 1994. The game is based on the real K-Road Tournament which was banned in every country because of its no-rules, survival of the fittest attitude, which attracts ruthless international fighters.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The game focuses mostly on reality fighting than fictional. At the start of the game in 1P mode, the player will face against the other fighter that uses the same fighting style as the one the player chose. After the player wins against the opponent, the player will face against other opponents that use other fighting styles in the K-Road Tournament. If the player loses, the game will only allow the player to continue fighting through it with the character he used, and will not allow the player to choose another character.
The gameplay has a 6-button layout, but with simple controls. There are three punches and kicks for a few directions (weak, medium and strong). There are seven fighting styles featured in the game and two playable characters per style. For a total of 14 playable characters.
