The game consists of 3-on-3 matches, with various characters, sound samples, & backgrounds taken from various sources such Street Fighter, Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting.
You can play as 3 teams composed by 3 characters each one: -Fatal Fury team: Treey (Terry), Andy and Joe -Street Fighter team: Canme (Cammy), Ryu and Guile -Art of Fighting team: Ryo, Takuma and Lobaut (Robert)
Each team has a "dark" or "evil" version to pick, based on Orochi versions of some characters from the originals King of Fighters games. These are often thought of as simple recolors to pad the roster out (a technique used in many Famicom fighters), however on this game they are true alternate versions. Their basic moveset is usually the same, but their special and super moves are totally different from their regular versions. However, the normal versions of the Art of Fighting characters all play the same as eachother, as do the evil versions with each other.
The controls in game are simple: The A button blocks, B & C punch and kick respectively. A super move can be done whenever the MAX icon flashes below your lifebar or if "Maximu" is set on the options menu. Throws are not implimented.
