Shadow Fighter 2 - an arcade game that involves 'shadows' fighting. lol
Like the King of Fighters or the Street Fighters games, in the Shadow Fighter 2, you are provided an onscreen joystick with a punch + a kick for the game play (but only 1 type of attack, without the selections such as 'light punch', 'medium punch', 'heavy punch'...). But the difference is that, you are now able to buy equipments to boost your character - Attacks points and Hit points. Only after you have equipped with those weapons you would learn the special moves. Apart from that, the higher level you reach, the more movements can be unlocked.
The mission of the Shadow Fighter 2 is - Win the Tournament (defeat 24 opponents) + Defeat the Lynx, Hermit, Butcher, Wasp, Widow and Shogun.
Here's my experience after playing this game:
Various Equipments and MovementWeapons: Knives, Knuckles, Sai, Steel Batons, Ninja Sword, Machetes, The Sting, Daggers, Blood Reaper
Body: Robe, Old Leather Jacket, Kendo Breastplate, Riveted Jacket, Red Doublet, Fury Carapace, Leather Jacket, Snake Harness
Helmet: Light Helm, Kendo Mask, Conical Hat, Soldier's Kabuto, Sacral Mask
Ranged Weapons (unlocked after defeating Lynx)
Magic (unlocked after defeating Hermit)
*Note: You can upgrade your weapons as well!
The movements vary depending on your weapons equipped. You can go through it in the list. (eg: Uppercut, Axe Kick, Spinning Step Kick, Forward Throw, etc)
Head Attack is criticalIf you are able aim at the opponent's head, the damage incurred is significantly higher than the other body parts (this certainly makes sense in the reality). That's the reason you have the 'Helmet' as the special equipment to protect your head (to reduce the damage). Realizing this, I prefer using the attack 'Move forward + Punch + Punch' (Knuckles Super Slash if you are using knuckles) to strike from the top to the bottom (stand a higher chance of hitting the opponents' head).
