This game looked really fun. It was recommended because I was playing castle crashers and I love castle crashers. So I was kind of looking forward to playing this game. I played it with my best friend when he came over. We played around the first 2 missions trying to make it as fun as we can with combos and voicing over the characters but we both realized something after the 2nd mission. It was really repetitive. all you really do is go around the screen and punch people around in the same environment. No power ups, lives, extra moves just punching the same people around the same environment for that level. This was a really big disappointment for me. The game play is there it's just I can't recomend it.

Great game that requires a fast reaction time and has same screen co-op on PC which is rare.

Kickin' ♥♥♥, putting on a good show with combos. Making the audience cheer and making the enemies fear our never ending tornado of punches and bludgeons. Yes, I could get used to playing this action-packed side scroller.

It's fun and it's easy to get adjusted to the controls and pace. Overall I'd give it 4/5 stars.

This game has a great premise, solid gameplay and genuinely a good game.

Unfortunately for me, it is highly optimized for Coltrollers. Playing with a keyboard sucks. I was able to play through the first act easily enough. But it didn't feel good.

You can not map any buttons to the mouse so both hands need ot be on the keyboard.

If you have a controller, buy this game, you will probably love it.
If you are using a mouse and keyboard, avoid it.
