Edge (エッジ) is a side-scrolling beat 'em up developed and published by Technical Group Laboratory on January 15, 1993 for the PC 9801.


The gameplay involves a lot of enemies blasting, and then generally a battle against a boss to complete the level. The playing field is displayed without depth, as in a platformer. Some items can be collected, allowing you to expand your life-bar length.

There are two playable characters, you can choose to play as either Sakakibara or Rim and while you'll be given the opportunity to switch back and forth between them in the course of the game. You just need to press the Esc key. However, both of whom share the same life-bar.

The hero can execute different attacks, is able to jump, to block enemy attacks, and he is also capable of dashing. There is also a special move which is usually best to keep in case of emergencies, because you will loose energy when you use it.
