This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/1064M.html. TAS originally published on 2008-02-19.
A typical streetfighting game which spawned the popular Streets of Rage trilogy. This game is rumored to have used the same engine as Golden Axe, which is why the A button summons magic (sort of) to damage all enemies on screen, instead of doing some sort of roundhouse, like almost all other beat'em ups.
Completed on the hardest difficulty.
Compared to the previous movie (http://tasvideos.org/130M.html), this is over 10 minutes faster. Primarily due to the use of 2-players and a glitch that skips most of the last level.
