Reviews

“...skilfully combines the arcade immediacy of Super Crate Box with the weaponised chaos of Super Smash Bros, and VVVVVV’s instant gravity-switching...”
Edge

“When playing Gentlemen!, we couldn’t let the competitive spirit slip and we’re laughing ourselves giddy as complete chaos ensued on the screen. There were even funnier times when we were both tussling on either side of a single platform and trying to get the slip on each other. It’s just very fast and competitive fun that you should definitely try out...”
IndieStatik

“Few games offer single-screen action with friends as intense and fun as Lucky Frame’s Gentlemen!”

This is the biggest piece of ♥♥♥♥ game I own. Thankfully i got it in a bundle as an extra and didnt spend a dime on it.

There is NO online play
There is NO single player
There is no way I could see to exit the game besides task manager.


Unless you want to crowd 2-4 of your friends in front of your keyboad and play local co op or play against a motionless oponent this game is worthless.

I actually re installed this and let it run for two more minutes just to be able to post how ♥♥♥♥ty this game is.

Interesting game if you had 4 players in your house.
Not interesting if you play by yourself (since there's no multiplayer or AI)

Unless you have 4 people with you, you won't be able to play the game...at all. How many people have 4 controllers, and a pc with enough USB ports to plug them into. As fun as the game looks, I'm sad I will most likely never have the opportunity to play it unless they add online multiplayer. Be warned. Don't buy this game unless you're lucky enough to have the above social and hardward capabilities.

And OMG it's $10? How is this even on Steam? The dev's must be the absolute opposite of gentlemen. Such crookery.

Right out of the gate Gentlemen boxes itself in a corner. A local multiplayer only brawler, it requires a group (preferably of four) to crowd around the computer to even be able to play the game, which obviously alienates a good chunk of potential players. Assuming you can round up some friends however it's hard to imagine spending much time with these dapper little maniacs, as the amount of content is nowhere near enough to sustain more than a handful of minutes of play, and with the work some will likely have to do to get enough players I couldn't recommend it over any one of the many more compelling options available.

Gameplay falls somewhere between Super Smash Bros. and VVVVV, as you flip your way around the arenas collection weapons and trying to rack up the requisite number of kills first. That's really all there is to the game, as options are barebones and the different modes do little to switch up the experience (most do nothing but change which weapons are available to use). All of the gentlemen and ladies play the same and are just cosmetically different to be distinguishable from one another amid the chaos of everyone jumping and shooting at once.

Truth be told I did actually have some fun do to the inherent insanity that breeds a certain level of comedy when no one understands what happened, but it was very short lived and considering both the price and prerequisite of gathering and keeping entertained several other people to play, I cannot advise others pick it up. Were the price significantly lower it would be a harder call, but at $10 with only about a dozen arenas, simply drawn and repetitive artwork (one character is barely more than a color swap), and gameplay that looses its charm after you learn how to play, I can't see anyone getting their moneys worth out of Gentlemen!

Nine out of ten suave tea drinking gents agree it's not worth it.
