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!”
The Verge

Oh my god, they didn't provide the 'Quit' button. If they did, it would be the most useful part of the game. :)

The main menu glitches out when I switch from "options" to "information".

There is no "exit game" option. You literally have to CTRL+ALT+DELETE your way out.

It's also a tremendous chore to play, even with someone else.

Charging $10 for this broken, shallow garbage should be a crime.

I bought this game because I had it on iOS. I have not seen any explanation for negative reviews, so I will put in my own input:

PROS:

Controller Support
Local Multiplayer
Unique Fighting Style

Cons:

Black Border around Map
Ambiguous Quit Option

Overall, just like the iOS one, I think this is a great game. It is witty, fast paced, and allows for up to 4 players for an all out brawl. Unfortunately, it is distracting how levels are surrounded by a large black border, but I am testing this on a 3:2 ratio screen so it may vary on a 16:9 screen, in whcih case I will update the review if it turns out to be different. I do think that automatic scaling of levels would be in order though, and level editors would be nice too.

As there are very few games with local coop, and even fewer with controller support, this stands out as a great option for those Steam-Machine Users, but it also supports 4 players on a single keyboard, albeit it is a little strange.

This gives you a Smash Bros feel but in a rather different manner, You may find that the pigeon is useful for beginners with its homing ability, whereas other weapons like the knife are a very potent and accurate weapon. I am writing this reveiw based off of past experience with the game, and it does run at native 2160x1440 resolution at max graphics at 48-60fps on an i3-4010Y, which is very impressive optimization. Of course, the graphics are simple but clean.

I highly recommend this game, but if you have hesitations about this game due to other reviews that are not written, check out the iOS reviews and other game website reviews for this. I grabbed this at a 75% off sale making it a great value, the value at full price is gonna be more dependent on whether you have freinds to play with, as this is a solely multiplayer game.

This game looks cool, but only for more than one person.
Basically, you can't really play it alone.
The keys are weird, I had to press all the keys in my keyboard to make characters ready, you can't use the mouse to choose and that's a pain.
OK, i could make 2 random characters ready, but, it's really weird how you play them.
THIS GAME NEEDS AN EXPLANTATION - HOW TO PLAY.
Oh and there's no exit button, so only the task manager can handle it.

Well, it wasn't difficult decission, even when I didn't really like the game at start.

I decided that indeed I would not recommend this game, although I honestly think it may have potential, once they include:

1. LAN support and/or Online Vs. Modes.
2. More options as to increase the amount of deaths before the end game.
3. Succesfully put some story behind the characters.

I hope this is taken in a constructive way.
