the last one standing!?
screen... better artwork, character info, and.... Borders!!! Wooo!
The third installment in the franchise, World
Heroes Jet brings 2 new selectable fighters, Jack & Ryofu, in addition
to a bran new boss to fight against, Zues (whom takes the place of Neo Dio &
Neo Geegus). As you can tell from the screenshots above and below, the game
features new character artwork and stages, but the return character sprites
remain the same.
The "USA stage"
is a must in any 90s fighting game. lol.
One of the most notable gameplay changes in World
Heroes Jet is the speed. Previously, the World Heroes series was
known for its slow and clunky gameplay. That said, Jet is definitely the
best of the series when it comes to gameplay, but still doesn't offer anything
unique to the fighting genre at the end of the day. The 2 new characters aren't
bad, but still don't hold a candle to the top fighting game characters out
Is that a wannabe
Shoryuken I see?
World Heroes Jet is also
the best looking of the series to date, with colorful backgrounds and a few new
animations. Returning characters have been given a couple new moves, animations,
and pre-fight introductions in some cases. Over a year after World Heroes 2
Jet, ADK released the final installment to the series: World Heroes
World Heroes Jet was an improvement over the
prequels, but still, the series failed to stand on its own. Considering the
insane competition of the fighting genre in 1994, it's not hard to see why World
Heroes never obtained much success in the genre.
Simply put, the gameplay and character designs fall short when compared to the
top fighting games of 1994. That said, World Heroes remains an obscure 2D fighting game that some
random gamers might get some enjoyment out of, but there were definitely
tons of better fighting games to be playing in 1994/1995. ~TFG
