Streets of Rage

Top tips from the early '90s beat-'em-up

Inch forwards
New enemies are spawned at staggered points along the scrolling maps. To avoid getting overwhelmed by a full screen%26rsquo;s worth at one time, go slowly enough to spawn just one or two. Beat them up, then move along a little further.

Super combo
Try this - it disposes of pretty much any of the non-boss enemies, although because it launches you quite a long way across the screen, you might not want to use it while facing right in a scrolling area. First, do the standard punch, punch, kick combo. Follow immediately with a grab, administer two knees to the groin, then vault over the enemy and slam him into the floor with a throw. Works every time.
