appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die
by General Editor Tony Mott.
After beating the final story mission, an arcade game appears at The Warriors' hideout. "Armies of the Night" is a 1 to 2-player side-scrolling minigame based on Double Dragon
. The game begins with Masai and two Riffs walking up to Mercy, punching her in the stomach, and then carrying her away. Swan (and the optional second player) must battle the Armies of the Night (The Hi-Hats, The Baseball Furies, The Lizzies, and more) to get her back.
During the game's credits you can control Masai and have The Riffs wreck The Rogues. After the credits, the game continues at The Warrior's Coney Island base where you can finish training, replay missions, and go on patrol.
