"(2P) A 3D beat-em-up with awesome gameplay that works great for 2 players and was criticized by some as too hard in single player."

I've never heard of this game up until recently and I payed $.99 for it. In the time I have played it, had I known of it's excistance, I would gladly have bought it regardless of the sale. Generic Title Brawler or Kung Fu Strike, is a beat em' up game and a rather fun one at that. In regards to story, I honestly couldn't say. I thouroghly enjoy cutscenes and delving in the lore and what not, but I had a wierd compulsion to skip all the still image cutscenes, maybe cause I play this particular game for one reason.

Gameplay has you, in each level, fight in arena against a number of enemies of various strengths with a challenging boss at the end, however some levels do the cheap alternative of just putting a previous boss and their twin sibling/clone to pummel you silly. In regards to combat you have your light, heavy, jump attacks, counter, and dodge. You'll have fun pulling off flashy combos and contrary to nay-sayers, the fighting does not have a broken/ginormous learning curve. It took me awhile to realize in order to perform different, stronger moves, and proper counters, they must be executed with timing. You will only get so far mashing the attack button and your Common Martial Arts Striker will keep raving while you get attacked if you keep mashing the counter button.

There's also a local co op, I haven't tried it yet (no one wants to play with me :D) but I'd like to speculate that it is just a buddy who can jump in to help you on the harder levels and harder some of these levels can be, I mean, there totally possible to beat flawlessy with concentration but the level with raining bombs? Fork that level. Overall, though, a decent brawler to pick up and play.

This game is action packed and features unique Orient-style graphics. A gaming pad is not required but highly recommended.

This game is difficult in a fun way. This game is not for those who like having "the victory" given to them. And is a bit nostalgic, it reminds me of the arcade machines you'd find in some laundromats. A gamepad is highly recommended.

Each enemy requires a bit of studying (both bosses and normal enemies).

Each level has a unique set up, so the game never feels stale.

Animations are well done. The staff wielding enemies are a prime example.

Attacking an enemy is very satisfying because of the way they react to it.

There are power-ups, abilities, chi attacks and items that you can unlock with points. One unlockable ability is air guard.

The game has local co op (the entire campaign) that supports both Xinput and Direct Input gamepads (you have to configure Direct Input gamepads through the buggy config.exe. Xinput works by default). The game is difficult enough for you to "take turns" with 2 or more friends around.

The combat is not broken as some say and the game does not break its own rules; the only attacks that are unblockable are ones with exclamation marks, it does not depend on the enemy turning red(I do not recall the game ever saying that red attacks are unblockable) there can be a combination of red and exclamation. You have to use common sense when fighting some enemies. You can generally tell if an attack will cause you to stagger ishould you attempt to guard against it. Some enemies will try to land successive hits. Your first block requires less precision while any block(s) performed too soon will require greater precision. Your character's block animation will be different from the first block you perform, which is a visual que that your in what I call "precision block mode". You can also dodge roll out of combos etc and block out of combos even if you fail to block the first hit, but this is hard to pull off.

The game's graphics remind me of the newer Street Fighter games and another game called Power Stone 2 (I'd love to see that on Steam some day).

All in all the game is fun if you like difficult games, you'll have fun retrying over and over again by yourself or with friends, if you know how to laugh at yourself .

You may find it as a arcade type of games like street fighter or tekken or something else but yes Its all about kung fu earning gold to purchase equpments and skills which is not really easy to do.

Playing this game is fun especially if you are in queue or waiting for something, I really wish this game might be compatible for tablets or androids because its kinda good for that gadget.

I recommend this game if you are looking extra game to kill some time honestly its a good alternative game.

PRO: Easy to control and easy to navigate with only few keys to clicks. Every match is different and you will need to play it intellegently.

Cons: Its hard to earns gold, and it will really takes a lot of effort to do that.
