It is set in ancient China and follows three selectable characters fighting waves of enemies with swords. Assuming the player has the items to do so, he/she can also perform a variety of special attacks by pressing , damaging all enemies on screen.
It was re-released in 1999 with a modified copyright date saying "1999" — this is where the current ROM dump comes from.
And re-released to a primary American audience by Piko Interactive in 2015 as Water Margin: The Tales of Clouds and Winds.
The game borrows many assets from Capcom's arcade game Knights of the Round and from Final Fight 2 too, to a lesser degree. It also borrows voice samples from Streets of Rage. Some graphics are reportedly stolen from Street Fighter II, and the sound driver is said to be borrowed from Data East, or more specifically, the one used within High Seas Havoc.
