Title: Hipower Battlers Author: qobol Date: 2020-01-25 09:47 +1100 Tags: Media, Games Comments: Open
This is one of the few fighting games created using the Net Yaroze tools. It features single and two player modes, although only one character and scenario are available. The action takes place on a rooftop, but unlike other fighting games, falling out of the ring is not possible. In single player mode, the game loops and gets harder everytime the player beats the computer and is only over when the human player is defeated.
Hipower Battlers was never included on any CD cover magazine, but it was popular among non-yaroze members because it was often referenced on articles covering the Net Yaroze and a short clip showing the game in action could be seen on a promotional video featured on a European demo disc. The official Net Yaroze website also used it as an example of what could be achieved with the development kit.
Developer Dayon was already a professional programmer when he created his games on the Net Yaroze. He had worked at Taito on the games Recalhorn and Raystorm . Other Net Yaroze games by the same author are Funky Beans? (a puzzle game), Star Guardian? (a space shooter) and Ai no yosei Tomomi-chan? [愛の妖精智美ちゃん] (a gymnastics game).
