Introduction

Super V.G. (variable geo) is the Super Nintendo entry of a long-running Japan-only fighting game series, originating on an old NEC PC variant, and spanning multiple consoles including the Turbo Grafx CD, Playstation, Saturn, and PC, with more recent entries being visual novels. The series has a Hentai association, but is completely omitted from the SNES version (thankfully). The basic plot is that restaurants sponsor a fighting game competition to find the strongest female, who are waitresses at their restaurants, in order to gain popularity and patronage.

This entry in the series, while being released in 1995, has a simple engine very similar to Street Fighter 2, however it only uses 4 buttons, 2 punches and 2 kicks, of light and hard strengths. It also features dashing.

Game Elements

Basic Elements

  • Life Meter

Life meters for both characters are displayed at the top of the screen. Every character initially has the same amount of life. Once this is depleted through being hit, thrown, or taking block damage, the character with 0 life loses the round. Both characters may be reduced to 0 life at the same time, in which case the round is a draw.

  • Timer

Super V.G. is a timed game, and once time runs out the round is awarded to whichever character has more health. If health is even, the round is a draw.
