How to Play
Playing the Dragon Fist 3 is a lot like playing Dragon Fist 1 or Dragon Fist 2. You take on the part of one of many different fighters. Each fighter in Dragon Fist 3 has a punch and a kick then a unique weapon that they can pull out and use. Because the game can be played by two players on the same keyboard the keys you press are different for each player.
In Dragon fist 3 games player 1 uses the A and D keys to move left and right across the screen and uses the W key to jump. When it comes to fighting you punch with the T key, kick with the Y key and block with the S Key. Aside from basic attacks you also have a weapon which you draw with the U key.
Once you have the weapon drawn you can throw it and then pick it up when it has fallen on the ground.. Along with these normal attacks certain key combinations can be used to perform special moves when playing Dragon Fist 3 matches. You can sweep, use a special attack and even grab your opponent when you use the special key combinations.
What makes this game great is that while you can play a lot of different characters, you don’t have to memorize special key combinations for each of them which makes playing different characters a lot easier.
Player 2 uses the right side of the keyboard to play Dragon Fist 3 games. To move forward and backward across the screen they use the left and right arrow keys. The up key lets you jump, the down key lets you block.
For attacks you use the number pad. You press 4 to punch 5 to kick, and 6 will draw and use your weapon. As with the player 1 keyboard controls using different keys in combination will perform special attacks or moves that can help you overcome your foe.
