Streets of Rage is a LCD mini-game developed by Tiger Electronics in 1993.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
When the game first starts, the player can select from three different characters: Axel, Blaze and Adam. The player has eight health bars and one help. The objective is to kill all the enemies and not die. As the player progresses so does the difficulty of the game. Once the player completes the game, a short victory sound will play and the device is turned off.
