Streets of Rage gameplay
Gameplay is straightforward and simple. Three buttons are used, one to jump, other to attack and another to perform a range attack from a support police car. Each character has a limited set of moves that include punching and kicking or performing a back attack, two grapple moves, a flying attack, and if playing with another player two additional tag attacks, and different abilities.
Adam is slow, but a good jumper and a hard hitter, Axel fast and also a hard hitter, but a lousy jumper and Blaze fast and a good jumper, but weak hitter.
Some levels feature “death drops” where the player must avoid falling, while throwing enemies there at the same time, including a typical elevator level.
