Description

You are Ryu, a Street Fighter. Your goal is to travel to 5 countries (Japan, USA, England, China and Thailand) and beat 2 enemies at each of them. Many of these characters, such as Adon, Gen, and Birdie, are later seen in the Street Fighter Alpha series.

After each country you will have the chance to get additional points in a little bonus round, a feature seen later in most Street Fighter games.

The final boss in the game is Sagat, who is the second to the last boss in Street Fighter 2. The goal is to become the greatest fighter in the world. As with most tournament fighting games once you have defeated the boss the game will reset and start from the beginning with a harder difficulty level.

It is possible to start a two player game but there will be only one fight (between the two players) which will determine who will travel the globe to fight the computer controlled opponents.

Trivia

Arcade machine version

At least two versions of the Street Fighter arcade machine were produced in Japan and America, including one that used the now-standard one-joystick and six-button layout for each player (plus start buttons), and another that used one joystick and two huge fist-sized rubber buttons, which the player banged on to register hits. A light tap would be a jab, and a smash would be a fierce hit.

Two different C-64 ports released on one cassette

After U.S. Gold acquired the license to convert 10 Capcom arcade games for £1.2 million in 1987, they were experimenting about the best way to create the home-computer conversions. So Street Fighter was converted to the C-64 by two different companies as an experiment, one in the US and one in the UK (by Tiertex). The result was quite different: while the US version "looked more like Yie Ar Kung Fu, with static backdrops and smaller characters" (cited David Baxter, U.S. Gold/GO!), the Tiertex version featured large sprites and scrolling backdrops. Having two versions of the same game, they simply shipped both: the Commodore Street Fighter cassette featured the US version on one side and the UK on the other, letting the player decide which one to play. For U.S. Gold the UK version won: further Commodore 64/128 conversions were done in the UK, and the 16-bit conversions in the US.
