Ever want to make your own “beat ‘em up” games in the style of Double Dragon, Final Fight and Streets of Rage? Beats of Rage, by Senile Team, makes it possible without programming.
The game comes packaged as a simple fighting game starring a bunch of King of Fighters characters, but the trick is that you can create your own modifications from scratch. Most interestingly, Beats of Rage has been ported to the Sega Dreamcast, Xbox, Playstation 2, GP32, PSP, Linux and various Pocket PCs, so it is possible to burn your creations to a disc and play them on those platforms.
Development on Beats of Rage officially ended some time ago, but a decent-sized fan community has sprung up around it and created a pile of free games to download, and tools to further edit and customize the games that you make. OpenBOR is an open-source version of Beats of Rage that sprung up when Senile Team decided to stop development. It adds more flexibility and power to the engine, including the ability to insert your own C++ code, but needless to say it’s also a bit more complex to use.
If you just want to download some free beat ‘em ups, a good index to explore is BOR Revolution. However, as with most games of this nature, there isn’t really one index of everything that’s out there, and you have to do a lot of searching around. Try keywords such as “beats of rage mod” and “openBOR mod” on Google and Youtube to come across some more interesting stuff.
