Pit Fighter (Domark 1991)
Poor Pit Fighter,
the original arcade machine developed by Atari games was actually rather
good, the first Mortal Combat game, in fact, however most of the versions
made for the home computers and consoles were appalling, especially compared
to the conversions of it's later clone, Mortal Combat. In theory Pit Fighter
has it all. Blood, digitised fighters, samples, impressive sprite scaling,
and a whole array of weapons to use, including bikes. And then it moves.
God it's jerksville U.S.A. The movement is choppy and the fighters feel
like their walking through treacle. Why this is the case I don't know.
A few weeks after buying Pit Fighter I bought a copy of 'The One', which
came with a demo of this game strapped to the front. It moves much more
quickly, even slightly spritely.
