Originally titled "Fatal Fury: King Of Fighters", this was the inaugural game in the Fatal Fury series. Released in 1991 by SNK for Arcade and the NeoGeo console this one-on-one fighting game might not have a huge cast of characters or special moves but it will take you back to the glory days of VS fighting games, as well as keep you entertained for a few hours.

Seasoned pros of fighting games will not have a problem with the trophy list, which consists of setting high scores in 2 different game modes and then uploading them to the online leader board.

Even those that are not so good at these type of games (like myself) will only be slightly challenged, and with a little practice the game can be quite easy.


Step 1: Play the game and achieve a score of 200,000+

From the games title screen select to play an original mode game, you will need to achieve a score of at least 200,000 and upload the score to the online rankings to unlock all 5 score related trophies for this game mode.

See Score 200,000 Points for tips on how to adjust game settings and making use of the game continue function.

On completion of this step you will have:

Record score
Mark high score
Score 100,000 points
Score 150,000 points
Score 200,000 points

Step 2: Play HI Score mode and achieve a score of at least 100,000

The second and last step is to play the game on HI Score Mode, you will need a score of at least 100,000 to be able to post to the online rankings. In HI Score Mode, the ability to adjust difficulty and continues are disabled so it will be a bit more difficult. After a little practice this can be achieved by the 4th fight. I have included a few playing tips and a video of a Hi Score run through under HI SCORE Player.

On completion of this step you will have:

  • The score has been posted to the online rankings.


    For this trophy you have to beat the high score of 200,000 in Original Mode then upload your score to the online leaderboard. Simply choose to upload your score when prompted by the white pop up box after the GAME OVER screen.

  • High score has been updated.

    After reaching a score of at least 200,000 while playing a Standard Mode game and ending it, you would have broken the default high score and be awarded this trophy.

    If going for Score 200,000 points, then this will unlock naturally.

  • The score won 200,000

    For this trophy you will have to reach a score of 200,000 points while playing Original Mode. The game settings can be changed to allow game continues, meaning you can continue your game when you lose a fight and you will keep your current score. Also, the difficulty level of the game can be lowered and the countdown timer slowed. Doing this is a benefit as you receive bonus points when you win a round based on the remaining time on the clock and a slower clock means more time left and more points for you.

    To adjust the game settings, press the after selecting a Original Mode game to bring up the Options Menu. Select "Game Settings". Set the difficulty to LEVEL 1, this is the easiest. Ensure CONTINUE is set to YES and COUNTDOWN SPEED is set to SLOWEST.

    This will be the best settings to make the game as easy as possible, helping get the required score quicker.

    Use this playthrough to get used to the game but I suggest using JOE HIGASHI as your character, he is the one on the left, as I found him to be the best and you will need to use him later when going for HI SCORE Player (though if you find that suits you better, then that is fine).

    I have included some game play tips under HI SCORE Player that will also help during this stage.

  • The score has been posted to the online rankings in the "HI SCORE MODE".


    Note: While playing Hi Score Mode you can not pause the game, pressing will bring up an options menu but you will lose all progress on the current play through and will have to start again.

    For this trophy you will have to play the game in HI Score Mode. In this version, save games, continues and the ability to alter the game options have been removed.

    The score you need to beat is 100,000, this isn't that difficult. If you are a regular for this genre of game you will most likely not have a problem with getting the score required. Once you figure out what works best with each of the enemies its pretty simple. Below are some general game tips and the strategy I used for each of the 4 fights on the way to 100,000 points:

    JOE HIGASHI - First off select Joe Higashi as your character (the one on the left). I found him to be the easiest to use, he seems to have the best slide kick, a move you will find very useful. I don't use his special move at any stage. If you find another character or strategies that work better for you, then use them.

    * Select DUCK KING as your first fight, he is the one in the bottom left on the map selection screen. By starting with him your 4th fight will be against Tung Fu Rue and I found him to be the most difficult. You will almost have the required 100,000 points by your 4th fight, meaning you will only need to win 1 round against Tung Fu Rue.

    PERFECT ROUNDS - To get 100,000 points in 4 fights you will need a PERFECT ROUND or 2, this is when you beat your opponent without taking any damage yourself. You will get a 10,000 bonus per round for doing this. While its easy to say "Just do this every time", its not realistic and most people wont be able to do this. If you can do this twice in 4 fights though it will help a lot. I suggest making sure you get at least one in your first fight and if you finish the fight without one, then just restart the game. You are only at the start and are not really loosing to much progress, it's worth it to make sure you start off with at least one PERFECT.

    DUCK KING - At first I really struggled with this guy until I found the throw button. Pressing while moving forward towards your opponent will grab them and throw them, taking a decent amount of energy off. Duck is a sucker for this move. From the start, just wait and see what he is going to do as sometimes he will start will a spin move or jump kick. He jump kicks a lot. Once he has made his first move jump in next to him and press to do a throw move. Now just following him around as you throw him spamming . I found this to be the best and quickest.

    RICHARD MYER - Once again the throw move morks great here. Once you get him in a spam throwing cycle its easy to finish him off. 2 moves of his that cause the most trouble are his hand stand and when he hangs from the roof. For the handstand, just press then to do a slide kick and knock him out of his handstand. For the roof hang, simply press again and just wait for him to jump down, then slide kick by pressing just as he lands to knock him down.

    MICHAEL MAX - You are unable to do a throw move on this guy, he is to big and you can't grab him. The best strategy is jump kicks and slide kicks. Do not stay to long in front of him as he has a tendency to spam his tornadoes. Jump kick, to slide kick, then jump out and do it all over again.

    TUNG FU RUE - To start off the throw move is best with this guy, you will be able to throw him twice before he does his hulk thing and changes. Once he changes to his bigger version you won't be able to throw him. During his bigger version phase, keep your distance as he will do one of 2 moves, a spinning fly kick that you can duck under, or a flame kick which you can jump over. After that spam slide kicks until he changes back to his old man body. Then go back to throwing him.

    By the end of the 4th fight you should have 100,000+ points, enough to be added to the online rankings. Simply let yourself get beaten or keep playing until it happens naturally, your choice.

    Once your game ends you will be prompted to upload your scores and the trophy will pop.
