Tough Guy is a fighting game similar to Street Fighter. Choose one fighter and travel all over the world to choose and challenge a wide variety of fighters.A unique feature of Tough Guy is that fighters have the ability to refill their health if they are injured. They also have super moves which can inflict a lot of damage on their opponent.
There are many fighting games out there. Some are great (like Mortal Kombat) and others are crap (like 3D World Boxing). Tough Guy is somewhere in between.
It's a standard fighting games and reminds me a lot of Street Fighter II. The intro is excellent I think, although the music could have been better, but after that the game falls into mediocrity. You get to select the type of battle (hard battle, versus mode or tournament) and then you get to fight.
You have a fairly decent selection of fighters. Each one of them is somewhat unique (like a teenaged Romanian gymnast girl). Every fighter also has some unique moves in addition to the standard ones.
The fighting itself could run somewhat smoother and the flashing bursts of energy that show up when an opponent is hit are really just a nuisance. The sound during the fight is nice though. After that match every fighter has a little celebration dance (if that's what you should call it) and those are quite fun.
The best thing, however, is the 2 player option (beating the crap out of your friends is always fun).
Unfortunately this game was made in Eastern Asia and the setup is in the native language. This means that most of you will probably be unable to read the instructions. The first and the second line configure the soundcard. The third line defines the input device. You can play with a joystick (there are obviously two 2 button and one 4 button joystick options) or you can configure the keyboard (that's the 4th line in the submenu). Here are the pre-set keys (if you wanna change them, just see what they do in the first place).
Ply 1: E = up+left; R = up; T = up+right; D = left; G = right; C = down+left; V = down; B = down+right; W, S, Q and A are used for punches and kicks.
Ply 2: To move simply use the numeric part of the keyboard (number from 1 to 9 without 5). For punches and kicks use HOME, PAGE UP, END and PAGE DOWN.
Although not as well-known as Sango Fighter games, Tough Guy has the same charm and excellent gameplay that makes Panda one of the most underrated fighting game companies of all time, let alone in Taiwan. Crisp animation and graphics, many special moves, and diverse locales make this a fun game to play. The only downside is that the characters are too similar to each other. Still, it's a good fighting game no one should pass up.
