Description

Red Earth is a 2D fighting arcade game, with the action taking place in an alternative 14th century, or a post-apocalyptic 1999 (depending on release regions). The player can choose one from four characters:

  • Leo - a half-lion half-man, The King of Savalia
  • Kenji - a leader of an elite ninja squad
  • Tessa - a female sorceress
  • Mai-Ling - a female talented martial artist

Gameplay is similar to the Street Fighter series, with six button controls. There are some significant differences, for example, the enemy character has a much longer life gauge than the player. The opponents in the game's quest mode are unplayable monsters. There is also a two-player versus mode, but the character selection for the players is limited to the four mentioned before. Red Earth also has fatalities, something that is more associated with Mortal Kombat rather than Capcom fighters, and it also features experience points and a password system.
