Super Street Fighter II Turbo, known in Japan under the name of Super Street Fighter II X: Grand Master Challenge, a multi-platform video game in the genre of fighting game series Street Fighter, developed and published by Capcom for the arcade in 1994. It is the fifth game in the sub-series Street Fighter II, following the Super Street Fighter II. Like its predecessor, Super Street Fighter II Turbo came out for the machines based on the system CP System II.
In Super Turbo introduced several new gaming techniques, including an appearance in the series of Super Combos. In the same game debut in the series (as a secret character) Akuma, who from that time show up in all the other games of the series and the other fighting games Capcom.
Super Turbo was originally ported to the console 3DO Interactive Multiplayer, and later on the PlayStation and Sega Saturn (called Super Street Fighter II Turbo: The Ultimate Championship) as part of the compilation Street Fighter Collection, and even later on the Dreamcast console for the Japanese market under the name Super Street Fighter II X for Matching Service. A remake of the game, titled Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, out of network services for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in 2008.
Super Street Fighter II Turbo has introduced several innovations and additions to the combat system, had been transferred from Super Street Fighter II.
The first and main innovation was the emergence of a series of superpriemy that in a game called Super Combo (zharg. Supercombo). Usually Super Combo is a stronger version of a certain special moves (such as Cinco hadoken at Ryu is the Super Combo-hadokena normal version) and can be performed under certain conditions, being used for a maximum of two times the whole fight. Under the implementation of Super Combo has a special Super Combo gauge, each player is located in the lower corner of the screen and filling in the performance of basic or special moves on opponents. When the energy scale is full, the scale will be replaced by the words «SUPER» in English. The player can carry out the attack superpriemy by entering this particular team. When the superpriemy energy scale will be reduced to zero. If the opponent's character has been knocked out, being attacked by a Super Combo, then the backdrop will change to a specific arena, painted in red and yellow colors. Each character has one Super Combo.
In Super Turbo was also introduced to attack the enemy airborne. While the previous version of the game was introduced a few techniques that allow players to attack the enemy a few times, Super Turbo was the first game in the series, which was introduced advanced technology air combos. Certain basic techniques allow the player to attack an opponent more than once in the air, and thus "juggle" them. Such "juggling" techniques can be introduced to other similar devices or super-simple.
Also, Super Turbo was the first game in the series (excluding the home versions) that introduced the ability to configure the speed. The speed can be set in the configuration settings of the system operator or as an arcade machine (if the option is put on the free choice) at the beginning of the game by the player. The player may choose between three different speed settings. In addition, secret mini-games from previous audits games have been completely removed from the Super Turbo, as well as the Tournament Battle mode from the original Super Street Fighter II to 8 players.
In Super Turbo crossed all the characters, who were present in the previous apdeyte, where in Super Turbo for all the characters when they are selected, the default is different from the original color scheme (such as Ryu in Super Turbo is the default black and yellow karategi hatimaki, whereas in the original Street Fighter II had been the default white and red karategi hatimaki).
In Super Turbo, each character has its own alternative version to select which you want to enter a special code for each character their own. Gameplay alternate versions of all the characters, with minor changes based on the Super Street Fighter II (for example, Sagat in Super Turbo can overrule a weak kick to any SPETSPROM, whereas in Super Street Fighter II, he could not do it.) The alternate versions of all the characters have the default color scheme of the original Street Fighter II and Super Street Fighter II.
This method has its strengths and weaknesses. On the one hand, the characters can not perform Super Combo and quickly get out of the cast. On the other hand, some features of the balance of SSFII prove useful. For example, alternate versions of Ryu and Ken at startup seryukena virtually invulnerable, while the standard versions of the same characters can be attacked at any moment.
Also, Super Turbo debut of the first in the series of secret character Akuma (Gokey in the Japanese version). In order to fight him at the end of single player, the player has to go through all eleven previous opponents (including three sub-bosses Balrog, Vega, and Sagat) without the use of extensions and earn as many points or reach the final boss in less than 25 minutes. Once the condition is met, at the beginning of the battle c bison at his level is Akuma, who then kills a bison by attacking his technique hsiung-Goku-satsu, and then offers to the player to fight with him to test his abilities (in the international version, translated into English, this scene is deleted and after the killing of bison once the fight starts with an Akuma). When playing with Akuma, mini portray a character close to the scale of health is completely black, and his name is not specified. Also, the player can play as Akuma by entering a special code for this, although it is not a playable version so powerful as the version under computer control. Despite this, Akuma is still a very dangerous fighter combat, being able to apply the special moves damage comparable to the Super Combo.
