    For a long time I thought Toasty was something that Mark from Classic Game Room inserted into his videos for a laugh… until I saw it pop up elsewhere.

    I'd never heard of Classic Game Room…wow, those guys are pros! Kind of the opposite of the Amigos video production team 🙂

    He's definitely a class act, but then he's been doing it forever and has an army of contributors, a studio and a team of producers.

    The show was actually canned not so long ago, and then brought back following a massive outpouring of grief and offers of financial support.

    I'm not sure if the spin-off show, CGR Undertow, made a come back.

    Just an FYI..there is a method to the madness of the controls in this game…from the manual:
    THE BASIC MOVES:
    The art of Kombat is as it has been for thousands of years. A wise warrior
    will begin his training with the art of defence. Far more valuable than
    learning how to inflict blows is learning how to avoid or deflect them, for
    an opponent who attacks is an opponent who is vulnerable to attack.
    Defensive lessons are as follows (based on default settings)

    LEFT or RIGHT: Move left or right on the joystick.
    TO BLOCK: Move AWAY and press the FIRE button.
    TO CROUCH: Move the joystick DOWN.
    TO JUMP: Move the joystick UP.
    TO FLIP FORWARD OR BACK: Move the joystick UP + LEFT or RIGHT.

    Once defence has been mastered, a warrior can begin to learn the
    fundamental offensive moves – the punches and kicks. In combination with
    strong defensive tactics, these moves are enough to defeat most foes. The
    fundamental offensive moves are as follows:

    TO PUNCH (LOW) : Press the FIRE BUTTON repeatedly.
    TO PUNCH (HIGH): Press FORWARD or BACK + FIRE repeatedly.
    TO KICK (LOW) : Tap the FIRE button + FORWARD or BACK.
    TO KICK (HIGH) : Tap the FIRE button.

    THE ADVANCED MOVES

    The advanced moves use the basic moves as building blocks to form powerful
    manoeuvres. However, although they do more damage, they also are slower.
    The advanced moves are as follows:

    TO UPPERCUT : Press CROUCH + FIRE.
    TO FOOT SWEEP : Press DOWN then AWAY.
    TO ROUNDHOUSE : Press AWAY + HIGH KICK.
    TO EXECUTE A FLYING PUNCH: JUMP or FLIP + TAP FIRE.
