Rating Summary
This is an action role-playing game in which players assume the role of a high-school student fighting rivals trying to take over a town. From a side-scrolling perspective, players explore the town and engage in street brawls against rival leaders and enemy thugs. Players use punches, kicks, and various objects (e.g., bats, trash cans) to knock out opponents. In some areas, players interact with characters that describe the area as a “...vortex of love, lust, and dreams. Men filled with lust, women starved of love..." One obtainable item is described as a “racy magazine” that “[y]ou can't buy...in the store because it has an age restriction. But teenage boys...find a way to get their hands on it.” Another prolonged sequence involves gaining entrance into a Japanese hostess club. Along the way, players encounter drunk characters with red faces and a man vomiting from over-drinking.
