WWF Superstars is an arcade game manufactured by Technos and released in 1989. It is the first WWF arcade game to be released. A series of unrelated games with the same title were released by LJN for the original Game Boy. Technos followed the game with the release of WWF WrestleFest in 1991.

Features

The game features some of the signature moves and trademark mannerisms of the wrestlers in the game. There are also cut scenes featuring Ted DiBiase, André the Giant and Virgil. Mean Gene Okerlund and Miss Elizabeth make appearances as well. Before the first match, the player's chosen team enters the arena via the "ring cart" seen in WrestleMania III and WrestleMania VI.

Gameplay

The game features a basic grappling and attack system. From a grapple, a player can either toss the opponent, throw them into the ropes, or go into a headlock from which two character-specific grapple moves can be performed. Each wrestler also possesses standing strikes, running attacks, running counterattacks, ground attacks, and moves from the top turnbuckle. Brawling outside of the ring and usage of weapons is also allowed in each match. A referee is present in the ring, but cannot be attacked or otherwise affected by the wrestlers.

Players select two wrestlers to form a tag team. The playable wrestlers are Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, Big Boss Man, Randy Savage, The Honky Tonk Man, and "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan. Up to two players can play at once. The players take their team through a series of matches with other tag teams in New York City and then Tokyo. After three matches are won, players get to challenge the Mega Bucks ("The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and André the Giant). The Mega Bucks are not selectable characters. However, there are cheats for MAME that allow them to be used (together or separately), the drawback being that if DiBiase or André get a submission victory, the game will think that the player lost. Also, there can sometimes be graphical errors which will make the in-ring opponent disappear.

If the player wins the title match, a newspaper headline heralding the players' tag team as champions is shown. The player is then taken through another series of three matches (one of which will feature DiBiase) in the other city and a final match against DiBiase and André before the game ends.
