User Review Information

Really liked this hack

Reviewed By: Thaliall on 10 Oct 2021

I am a fan of both River City Ransom and Streets of Rage, and for me this hack was pure joy. It’s not a simple sprite replacement, the characters have their animations and moves, from the original game. That made all more fun - the only downside is that now I want more… and I thought that Yamada could fit better in the Amusement Park stage imo.

Version 0.9.82 Recommended - Yes
