Pit-Fighter is a 1990 arcade fighting game by Atari Games which used digitized live actors. The Japanese arcade release was published by Konami. Home versions were published by Tengen.
The graphical animations for the player character and opponents were created through a bluescreen process, where the various poses and moves were performed by real actors in front of a video camera. The game’s on-screen character animation are replays of the actual footage, not a rotoscoped (redrawn) animation. Pit-Fighter is the second fighting game to use digitized sprites, after Home Data‘s Reikai Dōshi: Chinese Exorcist.
The gameplay is similar to Taito‘s Violence Fight and SNK‘s Street Smart. The player must punch and kick their opponents until their energy runs out. If the player presses all three of the buttons at once, the character will perform a “super move”. The player begins by choosing one of the three playable characters, who each have different moves, speed, and power. As many as three people can play at a time, but there will be extra opponents to fight during any of the game’s 15 different matches.
Every third fight is a bonus round known as a Grudge Match. In a Grudge Match, the player must fight against a CPU controlled clone of the fighter if playing alone, or against the other players in a multiplayer game. Getting knocked down three times eliminates a player from the Grudge Match, the winner is the last one standing. Losing the Grudge Match does not eliminate a player, but the winner gets bonus money.
The final battle, the “Championship Match”, is between the player and the mysterious entity that taunts between matches periodically, the Masked Warrior. If more than one person is playing the game before this match, they must fight each other to the death until only one becomes victorious and can fight him.
Sometimes during matches the player will encounter foreign objects such as knives, crates, sticks, motorcycles, and bar stools that can be thrown at a character in play. The player may also encounter a power-up known as the “power pill”. If a character grabs this item, one will become temporarily stronger and take less damage from hits.
At times even the crowd will interfere in the fights. Two characters, known as Knife Man (Milt Loper) and Knife Woman (Dianne Bertucci), will come out of the crowd and stab the player with their daggers. The player can take these nuisances out with one hit. Sometimes there is also a fat bearded man with a stick. If the player knocks him down, the player can take the stick and use it against the current opponent.
The audience will also push any fighter that ends up among them, and stays there more than a few seconds. They will be forced back into the fighting area.
Another great SNES game – RoboCop 3 (SNES)
