Multi game neo geo arcade cabinets from the 90s

Back in the 90s, I lived in Fresno CA. I would go everyday after school to a You-Be's pizza place and play Street fighter 2. One day that game was replaced with neo geo cabinet that had 4 or 5 games on it. I got hooked on this side scrolling beat em up game, and I have been trying forever to remember what it was called. I have searched for every possible list of neo geo arcade cabinets, and I still cannot find anything that looks like the game I played. I would like to see if a rom has been made for it. The cabinet was one of those red ones with the games listed in little squares across the name plate thing on the top.
The game looked really good, for the mid nineties. There were several characters to choose from, and each had their own fighting style. As you went through the levels, you had to pick up little different colored balls that gave energy and magic power back to you. The only stage I remember is moving through a burning hallway and having to fight a big samurai armored boss at the end of the level.
I guess I could download every neo geo rom available until I find it, but people on here really seem to know video games. Does anyone remember these multi game cabinets, and which games were available on that platform? I have searched many lists through Google, but I still haven't found the game I was looking for.

The neo geo I grew up with had a bad ass game called nam something.

Cool shooter

No it's not metal slug, it was ninjas and samurais and swords and Spears and stuff like that. I have several metal slug games, so definitely not that one. Thanks for the reply!

Sengoku
strategywiki.org...


Buy yourself a Raspberry Pi, install RetroPI and MAME, and find the rom. Try it out,

ETA: There were 3 Sengoku games, all very similar. You may have played any of the 3, so search for 2 and 3 if this isn't exactly the one you remember playing.

MOD EDIT

I had a real nice one and then I got some kind of green screen error.

Looked it up and it was called a calendar error or something.
Wish I knew how to fix it.
Looks so complicated in those cabs.

And my parents told me video game knowledge wouldn't serve me in life...


Glad to help. Retro games are a personal hobby and, honestly, even some of the "bad" games from 30 years ago are more fun than a lot of the modern cookie cutter games.
