    Agressors of Dark Kombat

    Seriously, though; I don't know what it stands for.

    I remember this punk band in the '80's called MDC. On each album they would change what it stood for: I remember Mega Death Corporation, and Millions of Dying Christians.

    Weird but in the mid-late 90's I thought ADK made most the shit games on the neo.With the odd good one.

    But ask me now 5 years later, and Ill say the world hereos games are great! and Aggresors of dark kombat is awesome/And of course ninjamasters is excellent.

    I guess at the time I was spoiled on SNk releasing stuff like slug and shocktroopers.

    But still ADK did put out a lot of shit too, eg trash rally, crossed swords 1 and 2, magician lord.

    Those were their first games, and first impressions last and all that

    The best game by Alpha Denshi and easily one of the best games ever appeared on SNK hardware is Time Soldiers...

    Magician Lord and Blue's Journey are two of my favourite Neo games.

    As an interesting point, Alpha Denshi was the original designer of the Neo Geo system itself. If you look on any of the schematics, you will see Alpha Denshi as well as the name of their design mnaniac, Eiji Fukatsu.

    Time Soldiers (originally called Battle Field, take a guess who got to rename that puppy at Romstar? . Back, Time Soldiers, Sky Soldiers, Gold Medalist all used the same hardware board which was a precursor to the Neo Geo. It was a sprite/text system but it didnt have the scalar capability.

    Luckily, it found ports to Saturn and Dreamcast with the latter being very affordable assuming you can find it. Still searching for that deal on the MVS cart though.

    Check it out. <a href="http://www.bekkoame.ne.jp/~adk/" target="_blank">http://www.bekkoame.ne.jp/~adk/</a>

    SNK had several internal development teams with their own brandings, but ADK was probably the busiest. They put out a number of titles. Magician Lord is one of my favourite Neo Geo games and I thought the World Heroes titles weren't bad either, though not the best fighters on the Neo Geo by any means. ADK actually made a couple of JAMMA titles like Sky Adventure and a few others before the Neo Geo came along (or more likely while it was in development.) They very likely contributed a fair bit to its development. Unfortunately when SNK went under, I'm pretty sure ADK (and all their other development teams) went with them. It's a shame the staff couldn't get together and buy themselves out or somethign to continue developing titles.

    I shoved like the cost of the cart in the arcade back in 92' ,then I purchased the cart and played the hell out of Death Match mode..I have logged more hours on that game than I would like to remember..that and AOF so they don't get alot of time with me nowadays..
    BTW,ADK the game RULES I am only saddened by the fact that they did'nt make a part two with more World Heroes characters included..
    This system could last for another 10 years if they released all of the "what if" titles I've read people wishing for..
