Galaxy Fight

Galaxy Fight was released in the Arcades by SNK back in 1995, then ported to various systems over the next few years, including the PlayStation One.

The story of the game is that once every 1000 years, a being of divine power takes physical form somewhere in the galaxy. This time, he has taken form on the planet Danius. This being, who refers to itself as “Felden Crayce” is being sought out by fighters across the galaxy to challenge and defeat him for their own reasons.

Tips

Be sure to experiment to discover each fighters’ special moves/combos.

Each character has an ‘Instant Death Move’, that will finish off the opponent regardless of health.

Note that the playfield will scroll endlessly in either direction, so don’t worry about getting stuck in a corner.

There are bosses other than Felden… and if you do things right, you may get a code to play as them.afar Missile: Hold Back, Forward + Attack Reverse Spin Kick: (When Defending) Forward + Heavy Attack

    I’ve played this on my NeoGeo constantly and I must ask… how does one even do the instant death moves? I’ve never actually seen them.

    Is this game glitched, by any chance?

    I finally caved into the temptation of fighters of this era, and it seems IMPOSSIBLY hard. But here’s the kicker that makes me ask, setting this from Normal to Very Easy didn’t make the game any less forgiving, and at the same time, going from normal to very hard didn’t make the CPU any more vicious.

    Whether I’m on Easy, Normal, Hard or the extremes doesn’t make the CPU any more or less forgiving, making me wonder if perhaps some glitch occurred during PSN compression.

    I love fighters of this era, but as it is, this seems too impossible to play, even for a guy who managed to take down Amakusa, Mr Karate and the original Howard Geese.
