Overview

Alien Challenge (known in China as Huáng Fēihóng) is a 2D fighting game developed and released by IGS for arcades in Asian regions on 1994.

Gameplay

Alien Challenge plays like a standard six-button fighting game (with three punches A/B/C and three kicks D/E/F, each of different strengths). Optionally, operators can use DIP switches to make it a three-button (B/E/C, with B+E as A and E+C as D) or four-button game (A/D/C/F).

Notable mechanics in this game include:

  • A universal dodge technique similar to The King of Fighters '94, where players can put themselves in a state where they avoid all attacks (shown by flashing red) by pressing A+B. (A+D in the 4-button version, B+E+C in the 3-button version)
  • A super move system similar to Fatal Fury 2, in which players can perform a unique and powerful attack when their lifebar flashes. This occurs either after losing ~60% of their health or by collecting a special power-up.
  • A power-up system similar to Samurai Shodown, in which players can collect a power-up falling from the center of the screen (by attacking it) to heal ~10% of their vitality. One of these power-ups, an open can of spinach, also allows the player to perform a super move.
