Streets of Rage 2 - the Return of the Fighters 2021 (mod)


Mod author: Dha Lau Hoo (Da Lao Hu)

This is a special edition of Streets of Rage 2 - the Return of the Fighters 2021. This edition is for the gamers who seriously want to take on some challenges. The game difficulty has been significantly increased. Comparing to the ordinary version of SOR2 - ROF2021, there are these changes:

  • Alternative colors are used to distinguish the Post-Apocalypse Edition from the ordinary edition.
  • All the enemy characters are much stronger than usual.
  • Player characters’ defensive specials are much weaker.
  • The player character does not gain extra invulnerability after the defensive special.
  • There is no tea or coffee for the player to recover SP.
  • The “1UP” item in the game is replaced by a “?”. When the player picks it up, there is only 40% chance to get an extra life. (If this causes any glitch, please message the author. Thanks.)
  • The player can no longer drain the HP of the enemies by slow jabs.
  • When the player character’s HP is lower than 50%, the power is reduced by 25%.
  • When the player character’s HP is lower than 25%, the power is reduced by 50%. (E.g. Axel’s jump kick causes 8 points damage to the enemy while his HP is at least 50%, 6 points damage while his HP is between 50% and 25%, and 4 points damage while his HP is lower than 25%.)
  • The evil syndicate experimented illegal chemicals on the gangsters, so that the enemies can always deliver the same damage to the player regardless of their own health.
  • Mr. X’s machine gun is more deadly.

The difficulty levels are altered as below:

  • Novice: New gamers may want to start from here and feel the differences from the original game.
  • Dojo Test: This is where your sensei awards you a promotion.
  • Full Contact: Ready for a tournament? But there is no boxing gloves, only bare knuckles.
  • Jiang-Hu: This is a fictional lawless world of martial arts where violence is the only language.
  • Warfare: You want a war? You are already part of it.
  • Post-Apocalypse: You have survived a nuclear bomb, but you may not survive this.

Have fun!
