Rare's arcade hit makes its Game Boy debut with Killer Instinct. Choose one of eight characters and compete in three play modes: Tournament, Practice, and Game Link. Tournament is a series of fights against the remaining computer characters, while Game Link lets you challenge a friend to a one-on-one battle. Practice involves learning each character's moves at your own pace.
The combo-heavy action incorporates special attacks, evasive rolls, and charge moves. Stringing a series of button presses together will allow you to seriously damage your opponent. Master combo breakers to minimize damage while perfecting "ultra combos" that combine each character's special attack with more intricate maneuvers. Adjustable options include difficulty setting, controls, music, and lighting scheme. ~ Colin Williamson, All Game Guide
