Sengoku 3 (NEO GEO)
Sengoku 3 (AKA 戦国伝承2001, Sengoku Denshō 2001 in Japan), a 2D side-scrolling brawler video game published in 2001 for the NEO GEO, is the third title of the Sengoku series. It offers many mechanics that are available on the first two games and new and upgraded features for beat ’em up and Sengoku video games fans.
Sengoku 3 follows the blueprint of standard brawler games, but it is different in terms of presentation and story. Typical to beat ’em up video games, you still have to spend the majority of your time defeating all the enemies in each area to progress. However, you are part of a ninja clan, instead of a gang, and you get to choose the character that you want to play at the start.
When it comes to the controls, you’ll see that they are more similar to a fighting game than a standard brawler’s game. A is for light attack; B is for heavy hit; C is for jumping; D is for long-range attacks. The special move is executed by pressing the down button twice followed by A, B, or D. In addition to special attacks, the characters also have their own weaknesses, strengths, personality, combo style, and fashion sense.
The game mechanics of Sengoku 3 allows longer combo chains than Sengoku 2. You can execute up to 30 hits from a single combo. It is hard to perform 30 combos, but if you can, you can truly enjoy this game. You can also destroy things that are part of a stage’s scenery to get lives and special items.
