This is a 2D arcade-style fighting game in which players compete in one-on-one battles with a cast of selectable characters in feudal China. Players mostly kick, punch, and use weapons (staffs, knives, sabers, etc.) to drain the opposing player's life meter. Special attacks (fireballs, pixie dust, jumps and leaps, etc.) can also be initiated. Damage is indicated by flashes of red blood and cries of pain. One male character is depicted wearing a loincloth, which sometimes exposes his buttocks during matches.
