Flying Warriors was a game released in 1990 by Culture Brain. This game had two modes to play in. It had a tournament mode, where you and 8 of your friends can fight each other one-on-one choosing one of 5 characters. Then there was the side-scrolling adventure. What really made this game stand out from the other action games, were the RPG-style battles. When facing a boss monster the screen would switch to a Final Fantasy type of fighting sequence. Where you and your gang of heroes would battle this monster using a turn-based approach with multiple options to choose from (Fight-Run-Magic). This mix of action and RPG made it one of the most enjoyable single player experience outside of the Final Fantasy series. The tournament mode is simply the frosting on the cake in terms of this game's value.
