Growing up we would head to the local fish and chip shop to play the latest arcade games.
That was where we played Double Dragon, Black Tiger, TMNT and even this classic, Vendetta.
The side scrolling beat-em-up was a genre that was super popular on arcade machines probably due to where gaming trends were at in the early 90's and also a fair bit to do with how many coins you'd go through trying to get to the end past some impossible bosses.
One of the best for me was the game Vendetta. It had a buddy cop feel similar to Double Dragon and was a little bit more risky with the tone.
I recently was given a chance to replay the classic on arcade with some mates and I've gotta say the game still has it. I'd love to see a modern take on the classic.
