I want to vote for Rise of the Robots! I have never played Tube Warriors or Dangerous Streets (AFAIK , both are AGA games.. or at least the only versions that we got here in Brazil were AGA) . I have played Rise of the Robots and I can say it's extremely bad.

Arrow Rise of the Robots added

I've added Rise of the Robots to the poll and a few other terrible beat-em-ups. If you can think of any others, send a message and we'll add them to the poll.

Oh great , now you`ve added Pit Fighter, and I dont know if I should vote for Pit Fighter or Rise of the Robots...

I didnt know Vigilante had an Amiga version.. the PCE and Arcade versions arent half bad, they play a lot like a souped-up version of Kung Fu Master (And Kung Fu Master owns ). Erm.. now thinking about it, Vigilante is a progressive beat'em up , and I think we should only be talking about 1 on 1 BeUs.

I voted for Pitfighter cuz I remember reading a really poor review of the c64 version
And since I haven't played most of the other games I thought why not, its a dirty job but someones got to do it

How about Fighting Warriors, or does that not really count 'cos it's a PD beat-'em-up?

What do you all have against Rise of the Robots? The poor defenseless thing doesn't deserve to be treated like that

I'm in trouble...
It's hard to voting the worst beat'em'up when there are two IDENTICAL games like Street Fighter and HKM, with the only difference of the (bad) graphics...
Stupid control movement, ridicolous gameplay (I finish these game in one shot with the same movement and without losing a life!) Bleah!

Just had to be Pit Fighter, not only one of the worst convertions on any platform, but also not a very good idea in the first place - straight rip off of Mortal Kombat, without the fun.

Personnaly I didn't think RotR was that bad - it played quite nicely on my A4000 from CD, and apart from being very easy to beat with little sign of the adaptive reaction system from the opponents, had at least a slightly reasonable excuse for the plot.

If you payed 35 for it though I bet you were pissed!

Ay? What ya smoking there in Halifax lad? Pit Fighter was out years before Mortal Kombat came along. If anything MK is a Pit Fighter rip off. It's still much better though.

Sorry. It was a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Also I've just got some top stuff off a mate who's just back from Amsterdam...

Woo! how could I forget to add ROTR and PitFighter! Thanks Codetapper for adding the extra ones

I still think Dangerous Streets is the steamiest pile of turd in the BEU world

Worst beat-em 'up has to be Street Fighter........all the fighters prance around like marshmallow ballerinas and your opponents can make cups of tea in between moves you make coz your guy is so slow! Pure shite! Even the pathetic C64 conversion is faster and more fun to play than the Ami one!

Bahaha DrBong, nice one! However, I find the C64 version to be much more pathetic than the Amiga one! The Sega Master System version gets points for being utterly shite too...
