Yu Yu Hakusho

Makai No Tobira
(Door of the Demon World)

A clever mix of RPG and scrolling beat-em-up.

You start by being dragged out of bed and thrown out of the house. From here you wander the streets talking to people. Eventually you will talk to a girl who drags you to school.

When you enter the school the game becomes a 'Final Fight' style scrolling beat-em-up with the outcome of beating-up numerous enemies being experience points. Of course this being an RPG you go up levels.

Upon reaching the roof you are confronted by a boss. Here the game turns into street fighter. Loose and its back to bed, win and your opponent leads you to the construction site where you platform about fighting bad guys.

Even though it's a Japanese RPG it is made more accessable by the fighting sections. It is enjoyable but unless you have the skills of Japanese reading you won't be able to follow the plot.
