As someone who born on mid eighties, I was growing up playing games from NES, SNES, Sega Genesis (Mega Drive), all the way until PS2 before life reality kicked into my adult life. I have very fond memories on playing games made from all the mentioned consoles where I – as a kid – was spending countless hours sitting in front of the TV trying to beat those games. Now after pretty much everything settled on my adult life, I began looking back to those fond memories of me playing the now-they-are-called retro games.
Now if you are also like to play retro games – like me – regardless on who you are – younger, older or at about the same age as me, I have good recommendation for you on which retro game to play. This time Mighty Final Fight. For your information, this is my first post on retro gaming space. Let’s not waste another paragraph and straight into the case.

Reason why you should play “Mighty Final Fight” before you die
If you like modern game such as Street of Rage 4 or Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and would like to know how such games can be (and was) executed in 8-bit era, then Mighty Final Fight is the game to try. Developed and released by Capcom following the success of Final Fight series on the Arcade and SNES, Capcom eventually decided to make the game for the NES / Famicom. While gameplay and plot wise, they are pretty much the same, but the NES version has its unique points which you can’t find on the Arcade nor SNES version, they are: 1) the character is in SD form (Super Deformed, aka small with bigger head, just like how Gundam in SD Gundam series) and 2) the game has experience points and levelling system – something that’s rare in old-school beat ’em up genre. With NES console limited hardware and the controller that has only 2-buttons, I am amazed with how Capcom could execute the game back in 1993.
The game has 7 stages in-total, where 2 of them are the bonus rounds. You can choose between 3 characters: Cody, Guy or Haggar, each has their own unique ability. One of the game weakness point is that though there are 3 characters to choose from, but you can’t play the game 2 players. The game, unfortunately is only single player.
Nevertheless, the game is a tough one to beat – even me as an adult.
Let’s have a look at the Mighty Final Fight gameplay – a video by Nenriki Gaming Channel:

Either you are emulating NES on computer or smartphone, the games will be much better if played using a physical controller (rather than using touch-screen). Here’s my recommendation, controller I personally used to play games (including NES games).
iPega 9083: For playing PC and Android games. I like it because the fact that it can be used both on PC and Android without much hassle (driver auto- detected and installed), plus when I’m playing any Android game, I can put my Android in between – just like a Nintendo Switch.
SteelSeries Nimbus+: For playing iOS games. I like it because it’s MFi certified – Made for iOS, any controller-compatible games will for sure run with this controller.
