Considered by many to the best arcade wrestling game ever made, WWF Wrestlefest features in many gamers top 10 arcade titles.
Featuring twelve playable characters, including legends of the era Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior and Jake "The Snake" Roberts, the game offered 4 player simultanious action in either the Royal Rumble mode or "Saturday Nights Main Event" Tag Team.
The Royal Rumble mode saw every man for himself in an elimination match. Players were eliminated either by pinfall, submission or being thrown over the top rope. With 6 players in the ring at once, completing this mode requires strategy, picking off the more battered and vunerable wrestlers and avoiding those who were fresher and had just eneterd the match.
"Saturday Nights Main Event" Tag Team saw the player picking two superstars and climbing the ranks, defeating other teams in a bid to earn a title match against champions The Legion Of Doom and then defending their newly won title against all challengers.
Featuring simple controls, real signature moves and large, colourful graphics this game remains as popular now as it was when first released. A classic.
