    Pit-Fighter © 1990 Atari Games Corp.

    Three digitized brawlers face off co-operatively against a variety of street thugs, with gameplay featuring crowd interference and usable weapons. Players also get to fight each other in a 'Grudge Match'. Pit-Fighter featured impressive camera zoom and side-to-side pan but was somewhat flawed as a gameplay experience. On the dedicated cabinet version, up to three players can play simultaneously.

    TECHNICAL
    Pit Fighter was available in both dedicated cabinets and as conversion kits. The converted versions were usually only housed in two-player cabinets, while the dedicated machine supported up to three players. The dedicated versions had 25'' arcade monitors but, due to the lack of commercial and critical success, many of these machines were turned into "Street Fighter 2 - The World Warrior" cabinets before they were even a year old.

    TRIVIA
    Pit-Fighter was originally released in August 1990 as a dedicated game. 5500 units were produced in the USA and 1000 in Ireland for European distribution. The selling price was $2495 at its time of release.

    The conversion kit version was released in March 1991. 400 kits were produced in the USA and 155 in Ireland. The kit selling price was $995.

    Pit-Fighter was one of the first fighting games to feature fully digitized protagonists - released two years before Midway's "Mortal Kombat".

    Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (That's Atari Music: G.S.M. Atari Games 1 - PCCB-00066) on July 21, 1991.
