Violence Fight is a one-on-one fighting arcade game, that had been released by Taito Corporation in 1989; it runs upon the company's B-System hardware but uses a Yamaha YM-2203 running at 3 MHz for music and two OKI MSM-6295s running at 8 KHz for sound effects and speech, as opposed to the board's standard Yamaha YM-2610 running at 8 MHz for everything. The players must use two 8-way joysticks to take up control of two of four different fighters named Lee Chen, Bad Blue, Lick Joe and Ben Smith (with three buttons that make them punch, jump into, and kick their opponents), but if only one person is playing the inactive side of the cabinet will be controlled by the CPU - and they have to win two out of three fights against their current round's opponent, in order to proceed to the next one. A billboard for this game also featured upon the start screen of S.C.I. - Special Criminal Investigation later in 1989, and a follow-up called Solitary Fighter was released in 1991; it featured the same story and characters as its precursor, but with slightly improved graphics and a different ending sequence.

Story[edit]

This is taken from the game's attract mode (if you wait through the sequence before inserting a coin):

IN THE EARLY PART OF 1950'S IN
THE USA, A GAME CALLED "VIOLENCE
FIGHT" WAS IN VOGUE AMONG MAFIA,
RECKLESS DRIVERS AND GENERAL
BUSINESSMEN.
THE "VIOLENCE FIGHT" WAS THE
GAME TO STRUGGLE FOR "NO. 1
QUARRELER" WITH FIGHTERS WHO
GATHERED FROM ALL PARTS
OF THE USA SPEAKING BOASTINGLY
OF THEIR STRENGTH.
AND OF COURSE A LOT OF WINNING
MONEY AS WELL AS THE HONOR WERE
GIVEN TO THE "WINNER".
HERE IN A DOWNTOWN IN L.A.,
A YOUNG FIGHTER "BAT" AND HIS
MANAGER "BLINKS" SEEK FOR THE
WINNING MONEY EAGERLY.
AS A MATTER OF FACT, CAN BAD
TAKE THE NO. 1 PLACE OF THE USA?
