Deadly Moves

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and by that logic Capcom’s Street Fighter II must be blushing like a virgin bride on her wedding day. The amount of clones out there that shamelessly rip off the arcade classic is staggering, and it seemed that everyone tried to cash in on the craze at one time or another. Kaneko’s Deadly Moves, also released on the SNES as Power Moves, was one such cash run. To say it compares poorly to its source material would be a major understatement, and one wonders just how inspired (or drunk) its developers really were when they set out to create it.

DJ Boy

Like beat-’em-ups? Beaten every Streets of Rage more times than you can count? If you’re wondering which brawler to turn to next, there’s always Kaneko’s DJ Boy. It may not be high on the list of games that come to mind, but it’s… out there. Keep your expectations low and you just might be surprised.
