Atari was clearly trying to cash in on the fighting games craze of the early 90's, and Pit-Fighter was a bit late to the party, when it came to the Game Boy. That may have hurt sales, somewhat. What hurt sales even more was that this was not a good conversion. What was a reasonably fun, middling arena brawler in the arcade, had been reduced to a one-dimensional, low tech, mess of a fighting game that had very little going for it. And unfortunately, many kids and parents were probably duped to buy a copy of the game. Sadly, they weren't treated with a fantastic handheld gaming experience. Why do I say this? Watch the video, and learn for yourself all the shortcomings and "pitfalls" of this particular arcade port gone wrong. Enjoy!

I played this game a lot in the arcade, but then again I was a weird kid.  I would pick Ty and annihilate everyone with his special move.  The home ports...  not so good.  For what it is worth, the GB port has pretty good animation compared to the other ports, especially when Ty does his special move.  Too bad about the controls though.  Oh well, can't win them all, and at least it was only $4.
 
@bombatomba: Yeah, I was surprised how good the animation was, though it doesn't help make the game any more playable. Surprisingly, I've heard that the SNES version of this game is somehow worse, and is among the worst games on the system. I shudder to think how bad that would be...
