    Fighters' Impact [Playstation]
    Note : This game was released exclusively in Japan, but is easily playable through a PSX emulator. It was also ported to Arcades but MAME hasn't properly emulated it yet.

    Published : 1997
    Genre : Fighting
    Ryona rating : 3/5


    Ryona:
    • Three selectable female fighters out of a roster of twelve fighters (including playable secret and boss characters). One of the final stages pits you in a mirror match.
    • Some of the fighters, including two of the women, have 3 fighting styles available to them. Selecting a different style may alter their moveset either a little or almost completely.
    • Most characters, including two of the women, have 4 costumes (the three are tied to their fighting style, the fourth can be selected by holding Circle&Square at the Character Selection).
    • Each character has at least two grabs, including back grabs, which range from throws and powerbombs to bone-cracking grabs. A few of them, including one of the women, have a wide array of counter-grabs.
    • The game has an in-built system against button smashing. Using the same attacks over and over will make your character unable to attack for a while ; if she is knocked out during this time she will stand up dizzy.
    • Downed characters can be attacked in various ways.
    • Dynamic camera allows viewing of moves (especially grabs) through several angles, including through the floor.


    Female Characters:
    • Kaede is a young Chinese girl whose fighting styles include Aikido (where she can perform several different bone-cracking counters) , Haki (a type of Kung Fu) and Tae-Kwon-Do (with lots of fast kicks).
    • Silene is a tall blonde woman whose fighting styles include Karate (strong punches and kicks) , Army Martial Arts (precision strikes, including a back death choke) and Wrestling (with lots of powerful grabs).
    • Fareha is a blue-skinned barefoot Indian Goddess-lookalike. She only walks sideways and has several long combos.

    Note : The third row in the first set of screenshots is the aforementioned mirror match.
    Note : The second set of screenshots showcases the different camera angles that can take place during a simple grab.

    How did you get this game to run on an emulator?
    I have just spent almost two hours trying to figure out how to get a PSX emulator to run on my Windows laptop, with no success whatsoever!

    ^You're not providing any information of what you actually tried so I can't be of help. Getting these games to run is very easy, though, provided you have the proper tools :

    * The game's rom
    * ePSXe
    * The BIOS for ePSXe (Google is your friend)
    * Pete's OpenGL video plugin

    If you've tried the above and still have no luck, send me a Private or Visitor Message.

    Got the emulator working, didn't have the right video card plug-in.
    Are there any games worth downloading you would recommend for us ryona fans? :thumbsup:

    ^Again you're not providing any information on what you like to see so I can't be of any help. Please send me a Private or Visitor message explaining your tastes and I'll get back to you. Alternatively, check the Playstation part in the Ryona in Games article ; you should find some interesting gems there.

    Does anyone know how to do the counter-grabs? They never work for me.
