Extremely fast paced, two button XiaoXiao style combat.
You remember those old Stick fight flash animations from Newgrounds that went down in history the second they were uploaded? Maybe you were a kid like me, wishing that someone would create a game that allowed you to be just as fluid, furrious and fast. Well, wish no longer.
Within a matter of moments, this game has quickly become one of my favorite titles this year..
Yes, you read that correctly.
It takes elements of DDR style timed gameplay and gives it to you with a simple 2 button system. Simply press either the left or right mouse buttons OR X and B on a controler and go to town. Such a simple system has never before made you feel like more of a badass. Further proving that a good game only requires amazing game design. And that's just what this dev has pulled off.
Don't be fooled by the simplistic gameplay though. This brawler is not simple by any means and faster than you realize it, it will turn on you. Becoming a hardcore slaughter fest. Rating you on how many times you've missed and being rather unforgiving about it. This isn't to say that it's not fair by any means. If you missed, YOU missed. And you will pay for it with reductions to speed, taking damage and losing points.
But, if you can keep up with the insanity it's throwing at you from all sides, it's one of the single most rewarding feelings you can get from a game. Knowing you've just wrecked a small army of men using nothing but your timing, skill and reaction speed.
For the price, I can think of no better buy right now on the Steam Store. This indie dev put time and effort into crafting something amazing, beautiful, addictive and mind blowing.
Do yourself a favor. Skip lunch for today and pick this game up right ♥♥♥♥ing now.
