Ryu vs. Mike

Gouken was once a pupil of the mighty Goutetsu, where he learned the martial arts of Ansatsuken. This was especially developed for elite assassins and combines karate, judo and Kenpō. Years later, Gouken himself teaches now the Japanese Ryu and the American Sunny Boy Ken. He educated the two dissimilar characters thoroughly in the art of unarmed fight until it comes to a worldwide competition of the best street fighters. The so-called king of street fighters, a Thai kick boxer named Sagat, challenges the most talented fighters from all countries to compete in the tournament.

Aim of the game

In the role of Ryu or Ken you need to defeat ten opponentes from five different countries and dethrone Sagat from the Throne of the Street Fighters.


The game was released in two different versions, which could partially be bought together on one disk or cassette. Each side of the medium contained one version. This article is about the so-called European version, the other is named the US Version.
In this version, the special attacks by Ruy and Ken were deleted, there are no Hadouken, Shouryuken or Tatsumakisenpuukiaku. The background scroll known from the original and the bonus level were adopted.
There are loading times between the single stages.

The bonus level[edit]

To successfully pass the breaking you need to press the fire button and let it go, when the bar is as far to the right as possible (max).

The two-player mode[edit]

In the two-player mode, player 1 competes with Ryu against player 2 with Ken. The one who wins 2 fighting rounds first, then starts the tournament in the one-player mode. This way also Ken can get King of the Street Fighters. Street Fighter fans call this "Change History Mode".


For the first opponents (incl. Birdie) it is usually enough to pull the joystick diagonally into the opponent's direction and then press the fire button in quick succession to win.


There are no cheats known. Some of the cracked versions of the game have trainer functions.


Power Play October 1988 (no evaluation): "If you buy the C64 conversion, you are delighted with two Street Fighter versions at once; the worse one triggered spontaneous horrified screams in us." (original German comment by Anatol Locker)

Shmendric: "Oh dear, one has really troubles to find something positive... Okay, let's say, the sound is just within the range of bearable. But this is the best that I can say about this totally botched version of an in the original rather good and challenging beat'em up. That they wanted money at all for such a amateurish rubbish, is almost an impudence."

TheRyk: "The term Stretch-Sprite was taken very literally here, some enemies are tall enough to drink from roof gutters. But this is not really what makes the game a bad one. Lack of contrast or even same color of background colors and sprites are really annoying, though, and makes you wish for an improved version because no one wants to hack the sprite colors before each and every battle. Controls are just terrible. Only routine, luck or patience enable you to perform a combo of hits and thus, winning a fight. Gamers who manage to play through this poor game without trainers don't deserve respect but rather sympathy. All in all, the Go! Version of Street Fighter is a truely poor beat em up worth 3 points including bonus for the music which might not belong to everyone's top 100 but is a classic among SID gourmets."
