What's The name of the Game?
I remember my childhood in arcadeplaces, particularly one type of game comes to mind!
Ill try to explain..
Its almost always a fighting-game, but instead of fighting in an arena, you travel along the streets.. trying to beat every oponent that appears,
every so often you can pick up objects along the way, likw pipes, knuckles, knifes etc..
and there also very often a little harder boss at the end of every level..
what is these kind of games called? ive tried searching online but only get searchresults as "mortal kombat" - which it isnt!

Maybe Double Dragon?
well.. kind of similar! but im looking for the "game typ", what are these kind of games called? :)
but the one im looking for is a bit more high graphic, i think its something US-inspired with houses in background..
and i think the person your playing is some kind of fighter/kickboxer

THATS IT! :)
Final Fight.. thats one of the games i was having in mind, thanks! :)
Ive also checked out Streets of Rage 2
does someone know any similar games? :)
@najkks I consider those "fighting game" genre
Some good ones are The Punisher, Alien vs Preditor, both dungeon and dragon games. Cadillacs and dinosaurs. Of coarse you can't forget the classics like both TMNT games, the simpsons and x-men the arcade game.
That's all arcade. On console there is many more

@najkks Another good one is Armored Warriors. Nothing beats roving around as a giant robot, beating up other giant robots and then stealing their body parts for your own use.
"Oh, I have a giant claw, but you have a laser sword?"
[beat][beat][beat][drop sword][pickup sword]
"Now I have a laser sword!"
"Ooh, that one has tracks for legs. I like tracks..."

I realise you've solved this one, but this place is also good at finding long lost game memories: https://www.reddit.com/r/tipofmyjoystick/

OMG, How could i forget,
NINJA BASEBALL BATMAN.
And if you think the game is some weird baseball game that has Batman................. you'd be wrong.
Oh and it runs fine with some very minor slowdown on a Pi :D

'Beat'em ups' and sometimes called 'Brawlers' or 'Brawl'.
When reading your main post, I was thinking of a game called 'Crime Fighters'. I use to play it at our local Wal-Mart when they use to have coin-ops in the breeze way. I think you can get brass knuckles in that game but I can't remember. I'll have to check it out sometime. Been a while since I played it.
