An arcade beat 'em up, Street Smart puts you in the shoes of the ass-kicking "Karate Man" who travels across the country to participate in the Tag Championship.

The game is played from a side-scrolling third person perspective in which you can move in any direction in a closed arena (limited by the cheering crowds and other street elements). You have to face eight unique fighters in succession by using punches, kicks, and jumping against the progressively more difficult adversaries.

The arcade version features a cooperative two-player mode, but this was excluded in the PS Mini release. As a unique feature of the Genesis version you can bet money on the outcome of the fights, and if you win you can use that money to upgrade your stats to suit your playing style. Also added to the Genesis version are a Vs mode and a new special move that depletes part of your lifebar.
