Description

Aggressors of Dark Kombat is another one-on-one street fighting beat 'em up from the Neo-Geo's seemingly endless library of fighters.

It pits 8 fighters of different styles and strengths against each other in a tournament to see who's the toughest mofo on the streets of Tokyo. Your objective as usual is to deplete your opponent's health bar within the time limit by using your basic attacks and special moves (triggered by specific controller motions) while avoiding his moves and attacks.

Unique to Aggressors of Dark Kombat is the combination of traditional side-scrolling beat 'em up elements, meaning characters can freely move in an isometric space instead of being restricted to a single plane of movement. Weapons and throw-able items are usually thrown into the arena by the crowds and you can pick them up and wield them for added damage. Additionally, matches are 1-round only affairs, with an extended multi-layered health bar that allows for longer rounds than usual.

Trivia

Fuuma

Fuuma from the World Heroes series makes a cameo as a selectable fighter. His intro stating that he got lost in his time travels and thus appears in Tokyo 1994 for the ADK tournament.

Title

The misspelling of "Kombat" in the title may be more than following the tradition spawned by the Mortal Kombat series. Coincidentally or not, it makes the abbreviation of the game's title, ADK, the same shortened name the game's development studio Alpha Denshi Co., Ltd. goes by.
