Beats of Rage by Senile Team
As fans of the ‘Streets of Rage’ series that originally appeared on the SEGA megadrive/genesis,we always wanted to see streets of rage 4. But the waiting proved futile,and streets of rage 4 never came.That’s why we tried to correct this mistake and fill the void by makingthe ultimate tribute to Streets of Rage:
Beats of Rage!!
Beats of Rage was created by Senile Team (that’s us).However, the character sprites and some parts of the backgrounds are takenfrom ‘the King of Fighters’ games by SNK Playmore.Therefore special thanks go out to SNK Playmore and SEGA who unknowingly helped in creating this game.
Beats of Rage is a free, fully functional game, which includes music, and features six playable levels plus a bonus level. It is available for many systems,including PC, Dreamcast, Playstation 2, Xbox, GP32, and Palmtop.
The DOS version can also be used on Windows 95 and Windows 98.
Windows 2000 and XP are problem areas.
For some people, the (unfinished) Windows version is the answer, while others get better results using VDMsound.
Probably the most important reason for the lasting success of BOR was the game’s engine, as it was customization, and allowed for new games to be built with it. The games developed for the Beats of Rage engine are commonly referred to as “mods”, the creators are commonly referred to as “modders”, and the engine itself is commonly referred to as “modifiable”.Beats of Rage has become so popular due to the engine’s ability to be completely customization that it has become the watermark for customization engines for video game consoles.
