     This game is really cool, and great for someone who's looking for how to make a fighting game with BitBlt, LoadDC, GenerateDC and other API calls. The Sprites are kinda bad, and there isn't any sound. But it can all be changed and added easily. Enjoy! Please Rate.

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner
