Ryu vs Ken on the Amiga

US Gold graced Amiga owners with a pretty dire conversion of Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior. The palette choice was odd, and it was very slow.

The most interesting thing is how the team chose to slice up the graphics for drawing to the screen.

    I had the Atari ST version of this on four floppies. Picked it up with my second STFM around 1994 or 95. By that time I'd already been playing the arcade version of SF2 Champion Edition for a couple of years, and the ST version was like being slapped in the face with a frozen fish. It was an absolute travesty, made practically unplayable due to awful collision detection, low framerate, an extremely poor imitation of the original game mechanics, and perhaps more than anything else the attempt to map six attack buttons onto a single fire button.
    I was absolutely disgusted. Presumably it wasn't much better on the Amiga? Better music and more colours maybe, since the Amiga was so good at that.

    The graphics are also sliced up in the PC version. There's some code for here:

    In all fairness some of those backgrounds look ok.

    Are you going to rip more Amiga sprites? Just asking out of curiosity.

    Codetapper. Will you be doing the same to Team 17's Body Blows? Is it a 16colour background with 2 8 colour sprites?? How is the sprite data stored??. Thanks in advance.

Street Fighter 2


If you look inside many Amiga games, secret messages have been hidden by the programmers. Richard Aplin was the king of hiding messages in the startup-sequence file, and his Line of Fire and Final Fight startup-sequences have become legendary! The Sensible Software team were also prolific at hiding messages in their games.
