Tekken Advance is a fighting game released for the Game Boy Advance. It is non-canonical to the Tekken storyline but follows the events of Tekken 3
Although it is missing a few characters that were HUGE favs in the arcades, the ones offered to show a surprising amount of similarity from their Tekken 3 counterparts. The new move lists contain most of the same moves for each character and now you can pull them off with incredible ease! Multi-throws are MEGA easy now.
Pressing A+B/A+R/B+R is very difficult to consistently pull off but at least there is a button config. screen to make the tag or throw button Punch+Kick. Don’t expect a side-stepping battle or counter-fests. This is because counters are gone and side-stepping is really just a dodging method and not a true side-stepper because you cannot get around the opponent. A tag mode that allows 3! characters on your side and a team battle mode offer a fun challenge and the computer AI is pretty well-represented depending on which difficulty mode you choose.
You will also notice that a few of the moves introduced in Tekken Tag Tournament (TTT) are included.
This is where the game really could have improved. There is ONE button used for punching, and ONE button used for kicking. If the R and L buttons would have been designed for kicking and punching as well, it would have been easier to make a simple combo of punches and kicks. But NO. You have to push a directional button along with a kick button to make a combo. It could have really improved in this way.
