Basic StrikesEdit

Basic Strikes were simple attacks players could perform on their targets. They gave less damage than the "Super Strikes" but were easier to perform. 

Image Name Description
BasicPunch Straight Punch It was one of the basic strikes which allowed the player to punch forward. In order to use this attack, players had to ensure that they were not too close to their opponent. It was a quick and fast punch, and made the opponent stumble backwards.
UP Uppercut The player crouched before doing an uppercut, making it effective against an enemy who was performing a  punch directed towards the player's head, or when the enemy was performing a jump kick or was airborne and hurtling towards the player. In order to perform this attack, players had to press the Up Arrow Key + X key.
SP Strong Punch To perform this move, the players had to press the Right/Left Arrow Key and the X Key. It caused more damage than a normal punch. The player lunged forward and punched with their fists. However if the player missed, their reaction time for getting back to blocking position being slow, left them vulnerable to moves such as the Uppercut.
SP1 Spinning Punch In order to perform this move, players had to press the key of the direction opposing their character and the X key. It was a very fast attack, but could be dodged easily by using a low attack.
Low Punch Low Punch When the move was performed successfully, it would cause the opponent to either move back or fall down. This attack worked well when the player was close to his opponent.

Front Jump Kick Front Jump Kick In order to perform this move, players had to press the 'Forward' Key + 'Up' Key + 'C' Key.
