    A genre I don’t think you’ve done yet is versus fighting games like Street Fighter 2 or Mortal Kombat.

    The PC didn’t have many good fighting games, and infamously received a terrible port of SF2 and many rip-offs, but OMF: 2097 was excellent.

    In arcade mode it has you choose a character and a robot, and fight the other roster opponents like most other fighters.

    In campaign mode, you start with your own character then earn money in multiple tournaments to improve your skills, upgrade your robot, and buy new robots. It’s got that same risk factor as in Death Rally, where you can have a fully-upgraded earlier robot, but buying a “better” robot also means you lose all your upgrades. I’ve finished this many times over the years and found the gameplay can get deep, as you found in Death Rally.

    The music is also great, it’s by demoscene composer C.C.Catch (aka Kenny Chou) from group Renaissance.

    I’m usually not much into fighting games, so the fact that I’ve actually sunk a bit of time into this one speaks volumes for its quality.
    Definitely agree we should do this.

    It seems like Epic had a lot of help from the demoscene back in this day, also considering how Future Crew had a pretty heavy hand in Epic Pinball. But yes, OMF2097 is probably the best fighting game for DOS.
