The King of Fighters series isn't exactly new to Android, but it's had a rocky ride thus far. A port of the classic 2D fighter appeared back in March of 2012, was laden with issues, and disappeared only to re-appear months later. The King of Fighters 2012 then arrived in August of this year, this time published by SNK Playmore directly. It provided a much smoother experience, even if it remained compatible with a quirky mix of devices.
There's something strange going on with SNK's The King of Fighters. Way back in March of 2012 an Android version of the classic 16-bit 2D fighter series was published, with a frustratingly short list of supported devices and no small amount of technical problems. The app disappeared from the US Play Store before too long, only to reappear this July. Now there's a brand new version, The King Of Fighters-A 2012, available alongside the original Android release.
Way, way, way back in the day, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth and you couldn't say "pants" on television, video games came in these little plastic boxes and you had to blow magic breath on them to get them to work. Back in those days, the name Neo Geo might've been more readily recognizable, as would the game Blazing Star. For the uninitiated, Blazing Star is a side-scrolling space shooter. A lucky video appears!
