Ikari Warriors is a 1986 arcade game by SNK, published in the United States and Europe by Tradewest. Known simply as Ikari (怒, literally “fury”) in Japan, this was SNK’s first major breakthrough US release and became something of a classic.
Ikari Warriors involves Colonel Ralf and Second Lieutenant Clark of the later King of Fighters series (known outside Japan as Paul and Vince in the Ikari series) battling through hordes of enemies. According to designer Keiko Iju, the game was inspired by the then-popular Rambo films and takes its name from the Japanese title of Rambo: First Blood Part II (Rambo: Ikari no Dasshutsu or “The Furious Escape”). Ralf and Clark also make an appearance as playable characters in Metal Slug 6 and Metal Slug 7. (wikipedia)
The Pro Action Replay, everyone. I don’t know if this artwork was used outside the UK, I just remember “Techno Kid” here appearing in every bloody issue of every gaming magazine at the time.
If he looks familiar to you, it’s probably because you’ve seen this piece of Sonic the Hedgehog artwork before:
