Background and plot
The game is in the 2151 AD (Earth era after post-apocalypse). At this time, the world was very chaotic, and only the strong could survive. Therefore, players had to constantly fight with each other to earn people’s respect. Besides, a man living in this era found a special blue armor. This man was Jadoh and used his armor as his signature combat weapon and defeated many opponents on Earth. From there, he gained control of the world and called King Fighting.
Next, Jadoh built a tower and recruited six bodyguards (soldiers with strong fighting skills) to protect him. Also, many people tried to steal Jadoh’s special armor but they all had tragic endings. After the tower built successfully, King Fighting opened a martial arts tournament around the world to find the strongest warrior. After many rounds, there are only four warriors, and they will have to compete with each other to find a winner to see Jadoh in the tower.
