Word of the street, one of the best brawlers, Streets of Rage 4 finally arrives on Android and iOS. So far, the hype is guaranteed. Challenging beat ’em delivers the ultimate gaming experience on Android, so there’s never been a better time to reveal our latest tips and tricks to get players into the game. Mr. We’ve profiled the current Street of Rage 4 characters while detailing what’s included in the X Nightmare downloadable content (DLC), some handy move examples, and general reminders to help you clear these troublesome stages.
Character profiling and best moves
We’ve identified each character’s strengths and weaknesses and highlighted some of their best moves to help make up for the shortcomings while complementing their playstyle. note: Characters from the first parts of the series are not included.
Adam’s fighting style is similar to traditional kickboxing. It is classified as an all-rounder/jack of all trades, but is not adept at any of them, but excels at using basic combos to knock opponents into the air. Some of his movements can leave him completely open.
important movements: Sword Strike, Rotary Kick
Sword Strike was one of the best moves in the game and it’s still pretty powerful. Takeoff is also a worthwhile alternative when dealing with opponents around you. Its finisher, the Roundhouse Kick, can knock back enemies.
Axel offers a martial arts style of play that combines some boxing, kickboxing and karate moves. He is described as versatile, but has strong abilities; and fights against agile and flying opponents, but is great against bosses. He also has the strongest attacking star move in the game.
important movements: Dragon Smash, Grand Upper
Axel can do lightning strikes with most weapons. Combining with Dragon Smash and Grand Upper and then unleashing Axel’s star move is one of his best assets against bosses.
Blaze offers another versatile judo style of play in its kit that is known for being a bit more agile with good aerial and flying attacks. Its low stamina means its drop, meaning it will take more damage from incoming attacks than other characters.
important movements: Hishousouzan, Rekkaken
Rekkaken is a DLC alternate lightning strike; It covers the shutdown attacks that Hishousouzan is struggling with. Blaze’s jump hits also have good range and can stop attacks at the same time.
Cherry’s guitar brings a unique flavor, offering a technical playing style that provides hit-and-run and anti-air moves (it can catch opponents in mid-air). Due to his technical playing style and inherently weaker stamina and strength, he is difficult to recommend to a beginner, but can be strong in the right hands.
important movements: Flying Knee/Sliding Knee, Somersault Kick
Cherry’s Somersault Kick can unlock multiple combos if used properly. Flying Knee and Sliding Knee are equally useful for clearing the screen from multiple opponents.
Floyd excels in the grab-and-smash playstyle; his bionic arms lie within an acceptable range against his opponents. It’s technique and strength-based so it’s very slow and if its handles aren’t tied it stays open like a sitting duck.
important movements: Gatling Punch, Double Smash
Floyd’s moves offer versatility whether you prefer more offensive playing combos or defensive moves that defy your opponent. Gatling Punchs offer I-frames making them a safer option to use. The Double Smash is Floyd’s most characteristic move with effective crowd control.
Estel Aguirre (Mr. X DLC)
Estel is adept at stun attacks and excels at crowd control. He is classified as a balanced but technical character and lacks evasive moves to save him from danger.
important movements: Boot Mark, Sucker Punch
Wire-rush attacks on your combos to gain range and I-frames. Diving punches are the best escape tool to get you out of danger. You can get in trouble with punches following Police Tackle, so switching to Sucker Punch means you don’t have to worry about recovery time from Police Tackle.
Max Thunder (Mr. X DLC)
Max’s strengths and weaknesses are similar to Floyd’s, both being technical and power-driven characters, though Max’s handling is slightly less forgiving. He can jump while holding his opponent and resist interruption with some of his attacks.
important movements: Clothes Lining, Atomic Drop
Max’s basic combo is the strongest combination in the game, so use it! He gains armor to activate his Lining of Clothes, so his attack is not interrupted. Atomic Drop is also one of the most powerful moves in the game; Max can inflict deadly damage by grabbing and crushing his opponent from behind.
Shiva (Mr. X DLC)
Shiva is strength and speed based with good air combo potential. Unfortunately, Shiva has a quirk that prevents him from holding weapons. Instead, he throws them at opponents for extra damage. It is known for offering overwhelming basic combinations.
important movements: Back Attack, Flying Kick
Back Strike and Fly Kick have good range and reach, and Fly Kick is generally safe. Shiva’s moves can add some quirks, but if he lowers the combo/hit, he can deal devastating damage.
