Shodai Nekketsu Kouha (hereafter "Kunio") is an interesting fusion of
the RPG and Beatemup genres of gameplay. You wander the streets of Osaka,
getting into fights (randomly, if you don't start them yourself), beating
people up, gaining items and experience, and levelling up. If you've
played River City Ransom, you'll feel right at home - same series, really.
Money has been replaced by random drops and experience, though; you can
buy stuff from vending machines, but they take the generic "prepaid cash
card" currency, at an exchange rate of one cash card for one item. You
can also spend cash cards on crane games, slot machines, and fortune-
telling machines, once you find a game center.
