About This Game

Follow Turner, a rebel bunny rabbit with impressive combat skills in his quest to find those
responsible for slaughtering his village. Uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving the corrupt
leaders of the rabbit republic and the wolves of the nearby lands.

Streamlined Combat: Gone are the days of combo memorization and button mashing.
Lugaru uses a context-sensitive combat system to put all the moves at your finger tips. It’s
up to you to choose the right move at the right time and think your way through the fights.

Open-Ended Strategy: Each level presents you with an environment and a series of enemies.
How you choose to defeat your adversaries is entirely up to you. Storm in from the front and
fight everyone at once or ambush your foes one at a time with stealth attacks.

Ragdoll Physics: Not only does striking your enemies do damage, but so does colliding with
the environment once you’ve knocked them off their feet. Nothing does more damage than a
swift rabbit kick that sends the enemy hurtling into a stone wall.

Environmental Detail: Factors like wind direction and whether or not you remembered to clean
the blood off your knife affect your ability to sneak up on the enemy undetected.
Brutal AI: Enemies in Lugaru prefer unfair fights. Expect them to shout for back up, attack in
groups, and exploit any superior weaponry they can find.

Moddability: Turning on Lugaru’s debug mode gives you access to the map editor so you can
build your own levels, campaigns and mods. Debug mode also enables crazy cheats that allow
players to fly, have infinite health, explode enemies’ heads and set themselves on fire further
igniting anyone who comes too close.

New HD Textures: The original Lugaru has gotten a more modern, graphical makeover while still
staying true to the game’s spirit. Special thanks to Tim Soret for his HD texture pack.

Like 7 years ago I used to play the demo every day, got a key generator and finished it after hours of raging because of those ♥♥♥♥ing wolves. Sorry David, I hope preordering Overgrowth and then buying two copies of this makes up for it. Pls no hert me.

KungFu rabbit from times when pixels were large and distributives - small.
It is a little game, and it looks even older than it is... But it doesn't matter at all. The game offers experience comparable to nothing else. It is a hardcore test of your will and skill.
You play as a fighter rabbit who is securing his island from anything dangerous, bare-handedly. In basic terms, it's a 3D beat'em up. Fighting system is simple, but very addictive. Because of this - I highly recommend "Lugaru" to all who have a taste for old games and especially in fightings and beat'em ups...
8/10 dead rabbits

update: It has a little disadvantage: every time I play the game my internet connection is cutting off itself. Probably for the reason that I shouldn't be distracted when fighting to death.

Fun little game, good time killer and perfect if your too cheap to buy overgrowth. Can be a little bit of a learning curve at first but towards the final missions you will be stringing epic combos togther and slaughtering wolfs. if you are able to deal with the extrememly dated graphics you will love this game. only thing is that its very short

Choosing a good and simple game to do my first review, I choose this one. Why ? Since it's a Beat'em'Up style game, you fight against a good many enemies, needing to be fast on attacks and defenses/counter-attacks to stay alive through the levels, and heh, it isn't easy as it looks. This is a pretty simple game, with a good batch of combos and punchs & kicks to fill up your fight.

This game don't has pretty graphs, neither good effects (and unfortunatelly the resolution option don't work), but honestly, it's a worth game for those that like games that's tough and old, with fighting mechanics.

And then the history goes, that isn't really big, turns around Turner, an adult rabbit that lives in the forest, among his family and friends, but life is hard over there, principally when there's Raiders (the bad rabbits) and the Wolves. But there's still more to play than the campaing, there's 14 levels of challenge, and it can get difficult, very difficult.

So, after all the text, I can pretty much say that I do recommend alot this game. :3

Well, its a simple game.
you're a rabbit... commando...kung fu.... thing.
you fight other rabbits/creatures. defeat all of them on a level, you progress to the next level.
knives, pole arms, swords, etc.
controls are simple, yet... pretty clumsy. button masher feel... kinda automated.
if its dirt cheap and like... cheap. on sale. etc. yeah.
I wouldn't pay full price for this or have any grand expectations out of it, however.
graphics... are fairly decent. not amazing. sandbox/over the shoulder fps feel.
Does this game stand out? not really. lacks a lot of ... presence?
I think it might be the really... dull... however atmospheric soundtrack.
kinda boring b/c of the music I think. maybe that's what drew me away from it?

kinda gave me a bit of the old Karateka feel, except, without any real control over fighting moves.
or, at least thats how it felt first time through.
I will say, It was decent enough that I can't give it a bad review.
Will I still recommend it? Actually... yes. I couldn't find any extraordinary features about this game to call it "Bad". all around, simple. to the point.

Praise worthy? not particularily. But you can't hate on it either. It is what it is.

cheap game. cheap time killer. cheap. Graphics are pretty decent though. for how cheap it feels.

however, I will give it the benefit that it had no problems installing and playing right off the start.
(unlike a lot of other games on steam where it takes like an hour of troubleshooting config setting, drivers, etc just to fire up the game).

5/10. its passable cheap 3d run around fighting.

also, did I mention you're a bunny?

Wind simulation!
Knife throwing!
Ragdolls!
Stabbing corpses! (And when enemies go down, it doesn't necesarrily mean they're dead. When they die, their mouths will open! Attention to detail!)
Mods!
Wolves!
Blood simulation!
Quotes!
"There maybe mothers and children in this den...
And I'm not so sure that I care anymore." (Heavy!)
Pretty good AI!
Jeez, this game is SWEET!
I seriously recommend it.
...Wolves are hard.
EDIT:
SWEET music!
Enemies can be shaken off your tail!
Wolves have a realistic smell system! Wind blows your scent, watch the way it blows!
Neck slitting!
Sword penetration!
Crushing of spines!
Cereal-related references!
Conspiracies!
Enemies will run away when they're injured to get a friend!
Oh yeah...
Did I mention...
ROUNDHOUSE KICKS???

This game is underrated as shiet. I mean. Have you ever heard of it? No?

Well then.

This game is a hidden jewel. I can't believe it was overlooked.
Well.
Maybe because of how much skill you need for it.

This game is like fighting an actual person. You need fast reflexes and a way to take them down easy

Either if its stealth, or brute force, you need ways. And sometimes the game makes you change your tactics and get used to new ones.

And you need to be VERY calm during all of this. Spamming isn't an option.

But still. I can't believe Overgrowth is praised so much, and this is an outcast.

This game is one of a kind. It has solid gameplay and is actually pretty brutal, emotionally. It still stands as one of my favorite games. Can't wait for the newest installment Overgrowth. Keep up the good work David Rosen.

A very fun little game. Don't expect a detailed story or anything like that, but it's a great game with a bit of a challenge - for those who don't mind the dated graphics.

Worth checking out its sequel currently in development, Overgrowth.

So I downloaded this in a fit of boredom the other night, having acquired this game in the first Humble Indie Bundle. I'd heard a bunch of negative responses to the game, with implications that it's some kind of "furry" sim. That's not the vibe I'm getting at all. Story-wise this game is a pure revenge tale that grows into story about betrayal and conspiracy. But forget about all the fluff for a moment and let's take a look at the meat of the game; The combat system. This is Batman Arkham Asylum with the difficulty cranked up to 11. And that's on Lugaru's Easy mode. The reversals and context sensitve hand -to-hand and melee combat feel very much like a prototype for Rocksteady's Batman games. But you won't find enemies timing their attacks for you here. They will gleefully all attack at once, pounding your rabbit head into a sticky paste. Timing, stealth and smart response are absolutely necessary for success. If you want a great 3D brawler then this may be your game.

Sneaking up and sliting a wolfs throat sounsd easy. That is until you play Lugaru and the wolf snatch knifes out of the air and then skin you with them. This game is a great hand to hand combat game with advanced chained moves. But it is also simple enough to master with button mashing.

''Bunny vs Bunny combat? What am I? a furry? Well I guess it's worth a try..''
-10 minutes in-
''OH MY GOD WHAT IS THIS I'M LIKE JET BRUCE CHAN OR SOMETHING YES!''
-20 minutes later, meet a wolf-
*insert 20 wolf beatings here*

Be prepared for maximum, legendary frustration..Or atleast, it frustrated me..It all starts out pretty easy, especialy when you find the staff weapon (bunny smacking!), but good god the wolves. Try to image my face when I met 3 of these §$@&!s after spending a good 15 minutes on beating one.. I have yet to complete this game, but I can already tell you it's hard..really hard.. Maybe that's just my fighting game handicap that likes to show up when there are more then 2 dimensions but still..

It lures you with the whole ''oh, bunnies!And they fight!Haha!'' thing and proceeds to throw a bucket of unvoluntairy-sexual-intercourse straight in your excrement-depository-hole.

A *very* good game in terms of gameplay mechanics and content. If you don't mind rough graphics and a cheap story this is definitely worth a shot. It's basically a combination of Super Smash Bros and Hitman. Looking forward to Overgrowth.
