On the subject of Brawlers. I need to mention River City Ransom because it was a really sweet game at the time but no one played it! The game stands out because it had RPG elements to it which added something a little different. I think I heard about it from reading Nintendo Power. I’m not sure but here is a description from mobygames.com:
The evil Slick has kidnapped Ryan’s girlfriend and taken over the high school. You must play as either Ryan or Alex (second player) and fight your way through River City’s merciless gangs before you can confront Slick and free your girl. Beat up punks and collect money to buy items which will make you stronger so you will be ready when it comes time for the final battle.
Not much of a description but really, all you need to know is: see enemy, punch enemy, barf!!!! and then take his money.
