Final Fight Cheats & Cheat Codes

Final Fight Summary

Part of the opening intro to the legendary Final Fight 1, this game predates the Street Fighter franchise, and indeed, many of the characters found in this game also appear there! This 2D side-scrolling beat’em up is, in some ways, the granddaddy of many games found today. Though it started as a straight sequel to the first Street Fighter, it soon took on a life of its own. First released back in 1989 as an arcade game, it soon took off and became an international hit. To put it simply, it was known as the best arcade game in 1990.

The gameplay of Final Fight is fairly straightforward. You have to move your character from the left side of the screen to the right, all the while fighting hordes of enemies. You can choose from three different characters, Mike Haggar, Guy, and Cody. Each of whom have their play style and stats. Co-op was also included, allowing two friends to take to the streets and beat up the members of the Mad Gear Gang. It also had…interesting game over screens, which naturally made people put in more quarters than ever before.

Final Fight Premise

In Metro City, crime is at an all-time high. Thefts are everywhere, criminals plague the streets, but there is hope. Pro wrestler turned politician Mike Hagger, the manliest man in Metro City, has become mayor. With his election, the crime rate plummeted, turning the once crime-ridden city into a shining beacon of hope.

But some prefer the streets lawless. The Mad Gear Gang, who once acted as the top gang in the city, once attempted to bribe Mike into letting them operate freely. When he refused, they kidnapped his daughter, Jessica. Enraged, Mike sets out to defeat the Mad Gear Gang by himself, enlisting Jessica’s boyfriend, Cody, and Guy. Both of whom are rivals in the way of combat. Together, the trio set out to rescue Jessica, and free Metro City of the Mad Gear Gang once and for all.

And when you are done and have moved on, break the rest of the windows. At the end of the stage you will not go on and have to beat the boss Caine.
