"Flying Dragon: The Secret Scroll" is a mix of beat'em up platform action game and classic 1 vs. 1 fighting game. Playability is only average but the game has some interesting aspects. For example the rather lengthy tutorial where the unusual hit-mechanism when battling opponents in the tournaments is explained. There is also a basic storyline you are following, which is a plus and wasn't often seen at the time of its release (at least the Japan release which was 2 years earlier than the US release). The fact that you had to play through the game twice to see the real "good" ending (similar as Ghosts 'n Goblins handled it) left a bitter taste though.

A platformer with fighting tournaments between stages. Similar to the Master System's Hokuto no Ken (AKA Black Belt), but executed far better. Not a bad game, but the controls feel a little stiff at times.
