Fighter's History Dynamite (also known as Karnov's Revenge) is a fighting game created by the now-defunct company Data East and released in March 1994. It is the sequel to the infamous Fighter's History, which drew the legal wrath of Capcom during the early 90s accusing it of being a blatant rip-off.

While the original game was made on Data East's own arcade hardware, the sequel was released for the Neo Geo with several improvements. Aside from new backgrounds and music, the engine was completely overhauled, so it became more combo-friendly and controls became more sleek. All nine characters return from the original game, while also making two bosses playable and introducing two newcomers. Although the game never achieved mainstream success, it maintains the cult status following to this day as one of the greatest Street Fighter II clones there is.

The Characters

Fighter's History Dynamite has 13 playable characters, 9 of which are returning from the original FH. They are Ray, detective from Los Angeles; Feilin, Chinese actress; Ryoko, 17 year-old judo prodigy; Matlok, British punk rocker; Samchay, Muay Thai pro; Lee, Chinese Bājíquán specialist; Mizoguchi, high-school dropout who practices Jissen Karate; Jean, French professional gymnast; and Marstorius, pro wrestler from Italy.

Two boss characters from FH also became playable: Clown (the name says it all) and Karnov, the almighty fighter from Russia and the host of the "Great Grapple" tournament. The final two characters are newcomers: Yungmie, Korean Taekwondo queen in search of her missing parents; and Zazie, a founder of the African Nature Protection Society who practices Karate.

All in all, the cast has variety. There's lots of fun to be had with new moves and the overhauled engine in FHD that ups the game's speed and combo potential.
