Inspired in part by James Kirk McCullough's Slam Masters E-Fed, this webpage serves a dual purpose as both a CAW page, and a tribute to one of the most legendary beat-em-ups ever created, Final Fight.
I remember the days of playing the coin-op Final Fight, at the bowling alley just a few blocks from my house. Back in 1989, it was probably the biggest thing going. The story, the sprites, the music, the graphics...it all came together in spectacular fashion, and kids were constantly filing in to play it. Not only has the game earned its place in the annals of video game pop-culture, it has also garnered a small, but devoted following on the Net, which I am honored to be part of.
Before I go any further, however, I must take a moment to give proper credit to those who have helped make this site possible, and to issue a few disclaimers about the site itself.
• All sprite animations on this website (as well as the banner above) have been created by PrimeOp, the author of ScrollBoss, and have been used with permission. (Thanks, dude!)
• The character backgrounds on this site are not entirely those set forth by Capcom. While I have retained certain elements of the Final Fight/Street Fighter canon, I have also used a little creative license in order to make the backgrounds more original.
• Lastly, the legal stuff: All the characters on this site are exclusive trademarks of Capcom, Inc. All rights reserved.
A great deal of work has gone into this site, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed building it. Double Dragon may have popularized the side-scrolling beat-em-up genre, but Final Fight was the first to perfect it, and no one else has done it quite as well.
