Brutal: Paws of Fury (Animal Buranden - Brutal) is a fighting video game published by GameTek Inc. in 1994. The game features a full cast of anthropomorphic animals as selectable fighters. The game also featured an ability to learn new moves and save them via a password feature. Brutal: Paws of Fury was published in 1994 by GameTek and Cybersoft in the US and Europe, and Kemco in Japan. The game was released on the Amiga, Mega Drive/Genesis and Mega-CD, and was ported to the Super NES later the same year. Another version, Brutal: Above the Claw, was released on the 32X and PC in 1995 with two new playable characters and a remixed introduction. The general content and gameplay has remained constant throughout all incarnations, although the Sega CD and 32X releases boasted superior graphics and sound. Many fighting game fans preferred the SNES version, if only due to the 6-button controller, each button to correspond with strong, medium, and weak punches/kicks, while the standard Sega Genesis 3-button controller forced players to toggle between punches and kicks. This could be remedied with use of the Sega 6 button pad.
