The gist of the game is that a scientist, Dr. Brown, has perfected a time machine, organized a tournament for various fighters throughout all of history to combat each other. Many of the fighters are based on actual historical figures. There are 19 fighters to pick from, I dont know their names so ill mush on to the game play.
Its the usual beat em up stuff, traditional Arcade mode, VS. mode, and a CPU VS. mode.
Each character had a traditional four-button attack layout, but could also achieve stronger attacks by pushing down two punch or kick buttons at the same time.
Back in the day there was Street Fighter and there were games trying to be exactly like Street Fighter to jump on its success. World Heroes was one of those games. It must have used the same engine, because it played exactly the same. So maybe streetfighter fans who havent played this will like it, or maybe they will just think its a lame clone.
Is there anyone out there that likes this better than SF?
