Description The playable characters are missing some attacks present in the original hardware: the charge/dash (Double tap Forward), the special attack (During dash, attack) and the proximity grapple/throw.
Steps To Reproduce
Additional Information You can see said attacks in videos recorded from the original arcade:

In some older versions of Mame, while the game as a whole was unplayable, and enemies would be launched off screen when hit, the dash would work.

To dash in this game
Press jump twice while holding joystick in direction of dash.

To throw an enemy
Dash then press the attack button when close.

This appear to be working fine in MAME.

They aren't the easiest combos to pull off but they do work as mentioned by jkburks.

You are right about the way to trigger the attacks. They still didn't work in my machine.

I've tried in other computer and they work, even if they seem sligthly harder to perform that I remembered.

In my case, a keyboard driver for remote control was interfering with they keypresses, disabling what it judged as double key hits, making the double jump for dash, which seems quite timing sensitive, always fail. Unfortunately, I can't disable it due to work, so I've to wait for a solution for myself. This means I'm going to ask to close this report, since the emulation seems fine.

My bad. Sorry.
