(TFT) Intro & simple combat game

I remember playing TFT soon after D&D. We had a great GM who created a
fantastic world. The main city was kind of germanic with Roman legionnaires
with lots of political struggles between opposing families. It was lost on
us, we were munchkins back then. The worse thing was seeing him tear up
about 50 hand-written pages of background at the end of the campaign in

Never got into GURPS more into Hero and played RoleMaster (didn't like the
system but GM was good).

I noticed Hero Games are launching a product called WildStrike!, a superhero
arena combat game, at Gencon. Part of the blurb reads

'The game features a full-color map, full color character cards (with
Instant Fuzion stats on the flip side), and full color cardboard figures,
along with a black&white rulebook. It all fits into a 5.5" x 8" package for
$10. It's designed to be played without a GM as a pure combat game,...'

It uses Instant Fuzion stats which is a 4-stat system similar to GURPS or
TFT. Although this is a superhero combat, it would be pretty easy to use for
fantasy as well.

Funny how a simpler system maybe making a come back.
