Survival Arts (c) 1993 American Sammy.

Another digitized fighter attempting to cash in on the "Mortal Kombat" craze featuring eight selectable characters and bonus rounds. The producers of this game must have raided the discount Halloween costume boutique. I cannot help but giggle each time I fight Dantel, the incredibly cheap and hilarious white trash ripoff of Shang Tsung.

Developed by Sekarab, this video game is their first game.

Sekarab was established by Former UPL game designer. They developed arcade games until 1995. But they weren't interested in arcade games. In 2002, as soon as they changed to develop console games, they became a subsidiary of Cavia. After 3 years, they changed their company name to Feelplus. In 2011, they decided to merge with AQ Interative (former Cavia).

After Dantel is defeated, two Hitler heads in blue are seen in the ending.


The US version is slightly different, it has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
