I think as you get older, you become more nostalgic for the days of your youth, because modern day things seem so drab and boring in comparison. Then you sometimes wonder if it’s not just a case of rose-colored glasses. In reality, I think it’s a mix of both, and Street Smart, the latest retro SNK arcade game turned into a Mini by G1M2, is a perfect example of that. It’s very much a product of the ’80s, but other than atmosphere, it doesn’t offer that much fun. I believe Street Smart is the first and only Mini that is a fighting game. Oh sure, there have been a number of scrolling beat ‘em ups, but this is the first one-on-one fighter, at least the only one I can recall. The premise of the game is pretty simple: you travel around the U.S. fighting people for money, apparently the top champion of each city (it’s kind of surprising that this concept hasn’t been turned into a reality TV show). You beat up the guy, a scantily clad girl walks out and gives you money and a trophy, then repeat in another stage. Finally, after beating up everyone, you get a fairly interesting cutscene, and the developer credits for the game roll.
