Gameplay system and controls have changed in Streets Of Fury EX, here are some changes.
New controls :
X : combo attack
Y : launcher attack
B : special attack
A : jump
L : guard
R + attack : fury
Now you switch between planes with up+Jump or down+jump, the character doesn’t slide like before but “hops” into the plane allowing the possibility of an air attack.
X : combo attack is your typical button-mashing auto combo, can be modified with a direction for different combos
Y : launcher attack is a single attack that can be linked after any combo attack hit, allowing the player to create his own combo. Can be modified with a direction for different type of launchers (up in the air, slam on the ground etc.)
B : special attack. A powerful special move that depletes the character’s “stamina” gauge. Can be linked after any move (but a fury). Can be modified with a direction for different special moves.
Stamina gauge : allow the player to perform special moves. Regenerates with time. Stamina is depleted if you’re hit when blocking. A GUARD CRUSH occurs if you block a hit with you’re stamina gauge empty.
GUARD CRUSH : Your guard explodes, you’re left defenseless for a couple of second.
Of course you can GUARD CRUSH ennemies !
Overall, possibilities of creating your own combos are so much more, I hope you’ll enjoy it.
