"I'd describe it as Battle Pong. Principles of fighting games melded with a tennis-like mechanic. Only worthwhile in multiplayer but great fun."

Update 4: The 6th



This update adds a new character to the Lethal roster, Dice, the cunning ping pong player. Dice wields an average ping pong paddle with such immense force and control that he’s able to deflect and give a spin to almost anything at any speed.

And there’s more! All characters can now use expressions, like NICE or BRING IT. Added to that is a character unique animation. A new mode has been added called ‘Strikers’, give it a spin by switching the 'Free For All' tab and see what that is all about. Another reason to start ballin' again is the raised XP level, going up to 33 now with new palettes and a special ball as reward.



Another addition is a new stage called ‘State Manufacturing Facility’ which has quite a different size than other stages and includes a brain-damaging track by artist Ishanna. New music can also be found in the menu with another track by Dr. Lazer. Several specific character changes have also happened, be sure to check them all out!

DICE


Introducing a newcomer to Lethal League, Dice.

Real name Hans Insel, Dice eschews the typical weapons of choice for a ping pong paddle that he wields with uncanny force. He appears distant at times, but can be intensely concentrated whenever he feels the need. As a Buddhist, Dice is known for his mental discipline and diligent physical training.

Dice will arrive in an upcoming, as of yet undated update. We’re still looking for the voice of Dice and you might be able to help out.
Send in an audition following these instructions before the end of the 17th of October (real soon!) and you can get a shot at having your voice featured in Lethal League!

This game takes the old school two-button skill games and gives it a flavor like no other. It's like being put in a racquetball room with dodgeball rules. The ball can get to ludicrous speeds! But if there is any lag at all whatsoever, it will be difficult to achieve.

There's a baller OST (not many songs though), a nice variety of stages, mostly aesthetic, but still provide a variety in size and significant difference with candyman's special--and a handful of characters with subtle but important differences in their traits.

I highly recommend this game as it is online play, amazing with friends and absurdly addicting for such short matches!

I hope there will be a way to chat with opponents in the game, at LEAST in the lobby. You can not communicate to them not to start a match because you are waiting for more people or if you want them to ready up for the game.

It's like a mixture of Mortal Kombat and Pong, a great game for playing with friends; however, most people I know own a MAC and I can't play with them. It is still a ridiculously fun game, even if none of your friends can play with you, especially 1v1 battles. And when the ball speed is to the max when you start, it's even more difficult and fun.

100/100 Would buy again.

(Note: There used to be 5 characters to choose from [Raptor, Switch, Candyman, Latch, and Sonata] and they've added a 6th recently [Dice] and it's a great addition for people that have a difficult time playing this game. Down side is that his jump is half of what others are and he's quite slow. His ability is like a Yo-Yo movement.)

GET THE GAME WHILE IT'S HERE!!!

TL:DR Whether you're good at fighters or not, this game is extremely fun and easy to learn, BUY IT!

Alright. Welp. This game is GREAT. Lethal League is a unique fighting time that's pretty much based on timing. You must hit the ball in time so your opponent doesn't kill you. You're basically playing ball tag with your opponent. You try to hit the ball to each other and whoever hits too early or doesn't pay attention will get hit and die. I'm kinda bad at explaining this so maybe it doesn't sound like the funnest game, but trust me ITS FUN! You know one thing I really like about this game? Call me a f*cking casualist if you want, but, ya know, it takes more Rythm than skill. This game you can ACTUALLY WIN without hours and hours of experience. Unlike Skullgirls, where you need to watch ♥♥♥♥ to learn combos or take hours to learn on your own or even been born in the 80s playing fighters at da arcade. The thing is about Skullgirls, if you go in online with a couple hours of play, you'll get the ♥♥♥♥ beat out of you. I guess what I'm saying is, I'm not really a fan of arcade fighters. My issue with dem arcade fighters is the crazy ♥♥♥ combos you have to make to do powerful attacks. But, anyway yea. BUY LETHAL LEAGUE!!! It's a competitive and Casual game!

This game is just INCREDIBLE. Fun to play, takes about 30 minutes to get to the "decent" level of skill, but a lot of time to master the game, giving it some replayability. The characters are diverse, each with their own unique special moves and hit angles, and best of all, it's getting constantly updated and rebalanced if need be. The community is constantly growing, and the game has a great competitive side to it. 10/10, GOTY 2014 for me. It's just that good, try it, seriously.

A mix between Pong and a fighting game with great sprites and bit music.
Highly addictive while playing against friends!
Easy to learn, hard to master and that's a good thing.

Get it or regret it!

Best described as Battle Pong on Steroids with a hint of baseball, the aim of the game is to bat the ball back and forth between you and your opponent until one of you slips and gets hit.
