Product Description

Product Description

Killer Instinct moves from the arcades to the Super NES. You can play as eight different fighters including T.J. Combo, Fulgore, Jago, B. Orchid, Chief Thunder, Spinal, Sabrewulf, and Glacius each with unique combinations and attacks. When you have picked your preferred gladiator, use the Practice mode and learn how to pull off devastating attacks and combinations. When you want some competition, battle your way through matches that increase in difficulty in the Arcade mode. When your friends start bragging about how good they are, you can make them prove it with the Two-Player mode. Everything you remember about the arcade game has been put in Killer Instinct for the Super NES.

From the Manufacturer

Killer Instinct for the Super NES was the original home edition of this classic arcade game. It has action, graphics and sound that annihilates all other combat games! Like the arcade version, this amazingly accurate translation is set in the future: a world controlled by the mega corporation known as Ultratech. In this ravaged futuristic world, the Killer Instinct tournament has become the most renowned form of entertainment. Fighters have their own reasons for participating, but it takes strength, speed and strategy to be successful. It takes a killer instinct!

To conquer this game, you'll need to master the special moves and the combo system. There are Auto Doubles, Air Doubles, Press and Release moves, Finishing moves, Humiliations, and many, many more killer moves. While all of the characters have long range and short range attacks, each character has his or her own unique style. T.J. Combo, for example, is best used with close, in-your-face combat, while Cinder is better suited for long-distance attacks and trickery.

4.0 out of 5 stars A marvelous achievement August 18, 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Rare proved to be a worthy asset to Nintendo during the 90's and surprised everyone by bringing out the hit arcade game, Killer Instinct in 1994. It was an excellent alternative to the Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat games that dominated the arcade scene. While it did not have as many characters or stages as other fighting games, it made up for it with stunning graphics, excellent music, a roster of good characters and deep gameplay that made you want to master each character. Then in 1995, Rare released Killer Instinct for the SNES shocking and surprising gamers at the same time. And it was so close to the source material that it was such a marvelous achievement from Rare and Nintendo.

Killer Instinct has a story in there that no one cared for so you just jump into the action. Pick a character and you'll see the line of characters you must fight one after the other. Each character has his/her/its own moves waiting to be discovered. The game gets you acquainted to a combo system where you can string together certain moves to start a combo chain. The longer the chain, the more you get to beat up the opponent and take off more energy. To make it interesting (and to stop players from over dominating matches), each character has a "combo breaker" move: a certain combo then when you execute after someone tries to chain a combo, that character breaks out of it and hits your opponent at the same time. When your opponent loses all of his/her energy, you get the chance to end the match by either knocking him/her off the stage or by doing an "end special": a special move that you execute to unleash a barrage of combo hits earning you an "ultra combo" (40 or more hits in a row.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice job, Nintendo. November 15, 2001
Everone knows that Nintendo is not quite known for creating fighting games. The company is known for its signature Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda and Metroid games. However Nintendo teamed up with Rare to create a fighting game which used a technology similar to their hit 1994 game, Donkey Kong Country. The result was the arcade fighter Killer Instinct. The SNES version was releasd in 1995.
The story behind the game, as with most fighting games, is quite lame. An organisation called "Ultratech" is pitting various fighters against each other for its own ulterior motives. There are ten fighters which are Thunder, Cinder, Glacius, Fulgore, Jago, Orchid, Riptor, Sabrewulf, Spinal and T.J. Combo. The characters themselves show a fair amount of variation, from the ninja-ish Jago to the robotic Fulgore to the dinosaur Riptor to the red indian Chief Thunder. The boss is Eyedol. The game offers a vast amount of moves for each character, including special moves, secret "combo-breakers," ultra combos, finishing moves, humiliations (a bit like Mortal Kombat's "friendships"), stage fatalities and more. What Killer Instinct is really known for are the combos. Depending on the number of hits they range from "triple" to "blaster" to "monster" to "ultra." Despite all this variation, I only enjoyed a few characters like Jago, Combo, Cinder and Thunder.
Just as in the Donkey Kong Country games, the graphics are amazing. The backgrounds range from medieval castles to rooftops to factories to canyons. The fighters have fluid animation, flashy moves and various coloured outfits to choose from. The sound effects are not bad, but some characters make weird noises, for example, Cinder, Glacius and Riptor. The music is extremely well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best fighter game of the era November 20, 2012
By Debbie
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I SO loved this game when I was younger. Played it in the arcade first, then had to buy the SNES system just for this game (although I played others).

It is a SHAME this game was no release for other systems and current systems. Young game players are missing out of an AWESOME game!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Changed Arcade Fighting Games Forever! February 1, 2005
Before Killer Instinct there was Mortal Kombat, and Primal Rage. But once Killer Instinct was introduced to the arcade it blew gamers away! I know I must have spent at least 30$ in quarters on it over the years. Well I was so excited when It came to the SNES as an almost perfect arcade port. I own all versions ever made of it including the arcade game. Buy it trust an experienced Killer Instinct fan you wont be dissapointed, especially when your kicking but with Folgore!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mortal Kombat with less people and more monsters January 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
Killer instinct is a fighter that showed up during the huge flare up of fighting games. It is similar to mortal Kombat in a few ways but executed differently in others. Both games revolve around special moves and combos. Killer instinct focuses on the combos more then anything, with an announcer who will announced your combo based on how long it lasts. I.e 3 hits is a super combo and 29 is an ultra combo. The game has a learning curve that all fighters demand but with practice and patience you can get the hang of it
