Your task is to defeat each of the seven different fighters who stand
between you and the final duel, the Championship Match, against the
Ultimate Warrior. Every third match you face is a grudge match, where
in two player mode you will fight the second human player, in one player
mode you must face a computer controlled clone of yourself.
Bonus points are awarded at the ed of each round for Knock Outs. A KO
is awarded to the player who delivers the final blow to the opponent.

floor of the `pit' which you may pick up and use against you opponent:-
you can even try pciking up and throwing your opponents.
Objects you will find in the 'pit' are:
THROWING STARS / CRATES / KEGS AND BARRELS
- Stand a distance from your opponent ans use the "punch" move to throw
the weapon, they can be used only once, unless they miss their intended
receiver, in which case they will fall to the floor to bbe used again.
STICKS - Use the "punch" move to crack the stick against your opponent. The stick will break after a few hits.
Inside some of the barrels you will find power pills. When you see one
of these fall out grab it immediately. The lucky owner of the power
pill will have, for a limited time only, extra powers which double the
power of their blows and halve the power of their opponents blows.
