OpenBOR? Tell me what it is!

Just in case you ended up on this page but not knowing what is OpenBOR, it’s basically an open source game engine, mainly for Beat ‘Em Up games, thus the name “OpenBOR” – short for “Open Beats Of Rage” where Beats Of Rage is the first game to use this open source game engine, a 2D side-scroller beat ’em up game inspired by Street Of Rage.

Controller Recommendation

Playing Beat ‘Em Up games is always better with controller!

While you can always use the keyboard / touchscreen to play the games, but for greater fun and enjoyment, I would recommend you to play the games with the Controller using physical buttons – so the experience is (almost) the same as the original. Just in case you need recommendation, here they are. I am personally using Nimbus and DualShock 4 to play the games.

Anyway, if you were watching Sega Power Surge event and waiting for Street of Rage Revolution, I would highly recommend you to play this game while waiting for the latest masterpiece to come out.
Lots of settings combination that you can choose from (E.g.: when jumping, you can use SOR2 style, however while blocking attack, you can use SOR3 style). Play and beat the 1st 3 games to unlock more contents.
