In this blog, I’m going to look at a selection of notable side-scrolling beat-em-ups that does something special in its own way. Streets of Rage is awesome but afterall, it’s not the only scrolling beat-em-up out there.
First up is Capcom’s arcade effort Cadillacs and Dinosaurs. It’s also the first episode of my new Retrogasm! series, a collection of video blogs looking at old games. Apologies for the scan lines, the emulator I’m using is a bastard to configure, but hopefully this video will give you a flavour of what the game it like.
It’s well worth seeking out if you are a Streets of Rage fan. it’s hard hitting and supports three players (for emulators with net-code enabled).
Enjoy the video and feel free to leave me comments on my YouTube channel. I hope to make this a big regular series of videos depending on viewer feedback.
