3 Credit Challenge: Wrestlemania The Arcade Game

A game only slightly more ludicrous than actual pro wrestling. But how far can I get on just 3 credits with zero preparation?

Following up from yesterday’s take on R-Type — and a little quicker than I’d anticipated, but I ended up with a spare evening and a thirst for something pretty mindless to play — I happened upon my copy of Midway’s Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game.

You know. From back when arcades were a thing, and Midway had some cachet thanks to Mortal Kombat.

Once again, the rules are simple: I can only continue 3 times in total. But this one’s a bit harder, because I haven’t actually bothered to look at the manual, control layout or any special moves. I’m just blundering in, in the style one might have done in the arcades back in the day.
