Searching 3 Games: fighting, beat'em up, sport [Solved]

Hello everybody!
I'm looking for 3 arcade games I've played many years ago.

The first one is a fighting game up with fantasy theme. The theme and graphics were very similar to Hippodrome, i thought it would be some kind of sequel. But the gameplay is in 2.5D kinda like King of the Monsters. You can select a character at the beginning, and there were a Golem and a Gargoyle among others. Every character has a special move that when activated i think the gameplay freezes a sec and there was some stars raining with obscure background (not really sure about this). Maybe, there were a 1p+2p vs CPU mode but I can be wrong.

The second one is a side scrolling beat'em up i think is 2D not 2.5D. I only remember the selection of characters: there were 5 ninjas in zazen position inside a temple. When you choose one, there were a lighting strike hitting the ninja at center that passes out and then the boss (i presume) catch him and jumps away. If you choose the center ninja, the guy kidnaps the girl ninja (second from left if i remember it). It was 2-player game. The setting were similar to Ninja Commando but less 'cartoonish' i think. Played only 1 time like 15 years ago.

Third one is some kind of futuristic handball. I've found it in MAME many years ago but lost name and rom. Several teams with nationality, if you toss the ball on the corner kick it bounces back to the center area. You can jump and kick, there was a team of only women with strange sunglasses. Egyptian team throws fire and Japanese team shout "kamakezi" at shoots. The concept is similar to Soccer Brawl but it was funnier to play.

Thanks to all who helps! :thumbsup:

G'day :hello:

The second one definitely sounds like Mystic Warriors, Konami, 1993.

I realised it immediately from your description, as it was one of my favourite ninja games in the arcades.

Keep this in mind, though; MAMEInfo states, "The video emulation isn't 100% accurate". This is a real problem in one of the last levels, where your character gets lost behind some stage graphics. It's still great to relive and enjoy all the colourful action of the earlier levels in this awesome game.

That's it! :V:

And I've found the third one, is Heavy Smash http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/heavys ... ysmash.htm

Now only the first remains. It's very obscure, probably not emulated.

Ooh, I think I just remembered the first one. It should be Death Brade (aka Mutant Fighter), Data East, 1991.

It is in MAME, so you can play it now!

Haha, Google Bot doesn't muck around.

That search worked out well, ost. When I saw that the topic was for three games at once, I was worried that it might never get fully solved. Luckily, I knew Mystic Warriors right away, and then it only took me a little while to remember the name of Mutant Fighter / Death Brade. I think Heavy Smash would've given me some trouble. Never heard of that one before, but you saved me the bother by finding it yourself.

Cheers! :cheers:
