Fight! Ivan Drago! For everlasting peace!

Your friends and mine over at I-Mockery have finally created what I know we’ve all hoped for: a Final Fight-style beat-em-up starring Ivan Drago. Yeah, that Ivan Drago — the Russian powerhouse what sent Apollo Creed to an early grave in Rocky IV. Ostensibly bored of killing champion boxers with his superblondness in Mother Russia, Ivan’s got himself a new task at hand: kicking the unholy crap out of everything that moves in the United States. From the game:

America has lost itself to madness and anarchy. Only one person can restore order… Ivan Drago! As the most powerful boxer in the universe, you must guide Drago through the tough city streets and beyond to find the source of all this chaos. Let no one stand in your way!

Thrilling exposition! Brief though it may be, it still offers a little more than “the President has been kidnapped by ninjas,” etc. When you’re Ivan Drago, you don’t really need reason to go around kickin’ ass. It’s what you do. You’re Ivan Drago.

Ivan Drago: Justice Enforcer! plays like the classic Final Fight-style beat-em-up’s of yore and actually stands up as a damn fun game with pretty rad graphics for a Flash title. Check it out.
