Description

Pit-Fighter is a 3rd-person fight game that features digitized graphics of real fighters and zooming effects. Players select one of three fighters (Buzz, Ty or Kato) to take on anyone who dares. At the conclusion of a match, players are individually awarded a Knockout Bonus, Brutality Bonus, and a Fight Purse. Every third match is a Grudge Match where players test the skills of each other. The last man standing is the winner of this three-knockdown match. Players fight their way to the Elimination Match to decide who wins the opportunity to dethrone the champion, the Masked Warrior.

Trivia

Cancelled Atari 7800 version

Atari had a 7800 port underway, outsourced to Imagitec Design, but abandoned it around 1992. You can read about it here.

DOS version

The DOS port of Pit-Fighter inexplicably uses a sprite resizing algorithm that stretches only vertically, not horizontally. This results in very odd-looking "skinny" fighters onscreen (as well as almost everything else).
