About The Game

War Gods is 3-D, one-on-one fighting arcade video game featuring 10 mystical characters battling for dominance.


This game is the only game on the Midway V Unit to use a hard-disk (401 megabyte). Only about 100M of the hard drive is used.

War Gods was the first truly 3-D fighting game to include the Digital Skin Technology that eliminates the polygon look.
