Karate Champ is an arcade game released by Data East in 1984. The game was developed for Data East by Technōs Japan. Even in this early example, Technōs Japan's penchant and talent for designing "fighting" games is readily apparent. While it was not the first fighting game (not even for Technōs Japan), it was the first to offer such a high degree of realism and sophistication, so much so that it has been identified as the defining game of the one-on-one fighting genre. The game also features an early example of digitized speech. The control scheme is atypical, featuring 2 4-way joysticks and no buttons.

Karate Champ: Player Vs Player is an arcade game developed by Technōs Japan and published by Data East in 1984. This is the groundbreaking sequel to Karate Champ. As Karate Champ was the defining game of the one-on-one fighting genre, Karate Champ: Player Vs Player was surely the defining game of the one-on-one player vs. player fighting genre, which would become the preeminent genre for competitive video gaming in the early to mid-1990s. Even now, players continue to compete in older games of this genre, and new games continue to be developed. Karate Champ: Player Vs Player was released less than two months after the release of Karate Champ, but gameplay aside, the game received a fairly thorough overhaul. The game features a new story, new and varied backgrounds, new and enhanced Bonus Intervals, much improved sound samples and opponent AI, and even an ending!

Battletoads is a classic video game by Rare for the NES, but different versions of the game were also made for many other systems, such as the Genesis and the Game Boy. All of these games are known for their comical animation style (such as gigantic fists and boots when the toads attack) and their high difficulty, essentially requiring the player to memorize the upcoming dangers to react fast enough to survive.
In this version, the player plays as the Battletoad Zitz on a quest to rescue the other two Toads, Rash and Pimple, from the Dark Queen. This game has only 9 stages, as opposed to 12 in the NES version. However, unlike the NES version of the game, there are no warps, and there is no two-player option. There are also fewer time-saving glitches. That doesn't stop Lobsterzelda, though, from beating up tons of enemies and completing the game very quickly.
In this run, Lobsterzelda improves the predecessor movie by 01:09.37 minutes by using a new skip and tighter optimization.

An unusual feature of the game is that it is set within the panels of a comic book with dialogue rendered within talk bubbles and sprites and backgrounds possessing the bright colours and dynamic drawing style favoured by superhero comics.
Sketch Turner, a "starving artist" and freelance rock musician living in New York City, is working on his newest comic book, named the "Comix Zone". One night, while Sketch is working on Comix Zone during a thunderstorm, a lightning bolt strikes a panel of his comic. In this instant, the main villain of Comix Zone - a powerful mutant named Mortus - manages to escape the comic book's pages, desiring to kill Sketch so he can become flesh and blood and take over the real world. Because he does not possess any power in reality, Mortus sends Sketch into the world of his own comic, freely drawing in enemies attempting to kill him.
Comix Zone is an action platformer in which players control Sketch as he progresses through panels of his comic book, hoping to reach the end and escape before his own creations finish him off. Each level consists of two pages and secrets are discovered by shredding the paper and revealing items. Along with standard attacks such as punching, kicking and jump attacks, Sketch can store up to three items in his inventory to help him overcome obstacles.

In part three of the Streets of Rage series, Mr. X is back and this time his plan involves replacing public officials with his own robots. Only Axel, Blaze, Skate, and newcomer Dr. Zan can stop him. Streets of Rage 3 features all of the beat 'em up action you would expect from a Streets of Rage game.
One new feature is the special move power bar, where it only costs energy to do a special move if the bar isn't full. Also new is the ability to do special maneuvers with different weapons, depending on the character. For example, Skate has no special move with the pipe, but he does have one with the knife. The opposite is true for Axel. Any weapon Dr. Zan picks up is turned into energy balls which he can throw at the enemies. Secret characters and multiple endings also add replay value.
In this run, watch atro city stylishly dispose of a lot of thugs and robots using Blaze and Dr. Zan, clearing a long game in only about 38 minutes. A glitch is used which does damage much more quickly when two characters attack multiple enemies at the same time. For more details, read the submission comments.

Ultimate Mortal Kombat Trilogy is a ROM hack of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 for the Sega Genesis that adds in every character and stage that was in the first three Mortal Kombat games. It also adds in characters, combos, sounds, and special moves that were in the original arcade versions but not in the console versions, along with some special romhack original goodies. However, care was not taken into balancing the game when adding all the characters. Some of them may have very distinct and noticeable advantages over many others.
For this demonstration, Lars_Hendrick chooses to play 2 player-controlled characters against 1 CPU-controlled character, using Chameleon and Woman Chameleon, and lets loose with all the wacky and game-shattering combos and specials the romhack has to offer. The result is something that has to be seen to be believed.
