The TakeOver, Streets Of Rage Clone Pummels Its Way Onto Greenlight Gamer

a minute read

The Streets Of Rage franchise is an all-time classic on the Sega Genesis. The game series is still extremely fun to this day and it’s a real wonder why the game doesn’t have more clones. Well, the developers of 90’s Arcade Racer, Pelikan13, is developing a game made in the same vein as the 16-bit classic and it’s called The TakeOver.

The game features 3D images and artwork that are ripped and used as raster effects in a traditional eight-direction beat-’em-up environment. Players will take on the role of one (or two) of the four playable characters in either single-player or cooperative fighting action. There are plans to include seven stages and two game modes that include arcade and survival mode.

You can see a demo clip of the game running below.

A lot of gamers instantly picked up on the Streets of Rage and Final Fight vibe that the game gives off. The inspiration is definitely undeniable.

According to Pelikan13, referred to on Steam as Pelikan1981, he states…

The community seems to be behind the project and are definitely giving it some loving in the upvote and favorite department.

If you’re skeptical about this project, no worries. The developers provided a small demo sampler for The TakeOver that you can download and play right now on PC. You can grab the demo from over on Mega File Upload.

If you like what you’ve seen of the game and want to see it come to fruition on the Steam store, feel free to give a vote and favorite for the title over on Steam Greenlight.
