Product Description

Get ready for the fight of your life in Go Straight: The Ultimate Guide to Side-Scrolling Beat-‘Em-Ups.

Written by award-winning author Dave Cook, and opening with a foreword by legendary Double Dragon creator, Yoshihisa Kishimoto, this odyssey through bare-knuckle nostalgia features over 200 games spanning 37 years, starting with Irem’s 1984 arcade mash, Kung-Fu Master, continuing through the genre’s ’90s heyday, and finishing with indie brawlers such as Mother Russia Bleeds and Streets of Rage 4.

At over 450 pages, Go Straight takes a deep dive into familiar beat-‘em-up legends like Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, Final Fight and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as well as delving into the more obscure brawlers you just have to try, like Denjin Makai, Shadow Force and Gaia Crusaders.

As well as reviewing each game, Go Straight features hints, tips and guides to levels and enemies.

The book is packed full of screenshots, sprites and level maps, all lovingly curated and presented to our usual high standards.
