Reviews

“One Finger Death Punch is an enormously generous and exhilarating combat game - one whose capacity for expression and mastery is far broader than its simplistic appearance suggests.”
9/10 – Eurogamer

“One Finger Death Punch is a game that one must definitely play in order to understand and judge it. This is all about the feel, and there’s so much of it as you play it more and more.”
9/10 – Cheat Masters

“The game is an instant classic. There’s not a mark to be said against it. It excels in every possible way, challenging the best of us while still remaining pick-up-and-play enough that literally anyone could start in on it, and subsequently get hopelessly addicted.”
5/5 – the XBLIG

About This Game

Experience cinematic kung-fu battles in the fastest, most intense brawler the indie world has ever seen! With the unique 1:1 response system of One Finger Death Punch, players will feel the immediate feedback of every bone-crunching hit.

Pay tribute to the masters using five classic kung-fu styles mixed with additional weapons. Combine face-to-face combat with throwing weapons to recreate complex fight choreographies or just send bad guys flying through glass windows. Explore a world map with over 250 stages, 13 modes, and 3 difficulty levels. Unlock 21 different skills that can be combined in thousands of ways to assist you in your journey. Put your kung-fu to the ultimate test in the survival mode.

One Finger Death Punch is a game you can “feel”. The direct connection between your mouse and your character on the screen will be a new experience for many players. When you string together a long, complex string of kills, it feels like something “you” did rather than something the game let you do. When you play it you feel like you’re actually playing a Xiao Xiao stick animation video. We took inspiration from every kung-fu film we’ve seen. Every bit of effort was poured into delivering an easy to play game that was as addictive to play as Tetris.

Every Press Matters! DO NOT BUTTON MASH!

One of the biggest challenges we had while making the game is stopping the player from button mashing. When our friends play tested our game they’d instinctively button mash, they couldn’t help themselves. It must have been the many years of playing other brawlers that engraved it in their minds the notion of rapidly pressing buttons to kill your foes. The game’s designed in such a way that if you button mash, you die. Every press matters. Although playing the game should still be simple, you see a bad guy in front of you, you attack him, he dies. If you punch even once when there’s no enemy in front of you, you’re going to miss. If you miss, chances are you’re going to get hit. It’s a simple system but it’s ruthless to button mashers. We spent much time setting up visual and audio queues as well as many warnings trying to steer players away from their natural button mashing tendencies.

It's more than just button mashing. This game gives me so much satisfaction to just punch waves of stick figures. The game has a lot of levels so it's not like it's over in a flash. Plus, they have an endless mode if that suits your interest.

I recomend using the left and right arrow keys instead of the left and right mouse buttons. I used to use the mouse buttons but discovered you could use arrow keys and I found it a lot easier to use the arrow keys. (You can also use S and D).

The only thing that could make this game better is support for the Steam Workshop where players could make their own levels or something.

I impaled a guy on a sword handle, punched a guy so hard that his eye flew out of its socket, broke every bone in another's body with a mace, beaten the ♥♥♥♥ out of series of enemies with a broom and a fish, slamed a dude so deep in the ground that his legs were sticking out, and then procceded to pull him back out of the ground and use his corpse as a weapon to kill more guys.

10/10 would punch a stick figure's heart out again.

One Finger Death Punch is the best example of less is more. It did what so many other games tried to do but failed at, and for that One Finger Death Punch is awesome.

There legit are only 2 keys in the whole game, only 2 and thats left and right (or whatever you configured them to be). However, do not be fooled by only 2 keys as the game is quite complex, especially as you get later on. If you mess up your reaction and timing for the different sides with your 2 keys, you may find yourself dead very fast. You basically only have to beat up enemies coming from the left and right along with different variations of that. But the enemies become more and more complex with certain boss like ones too. There are different level types as well, including regular, speed, break objects, etc. Along with the different level types, there are also a plethora of levels available that will keep you frustrated for quite some time later on. The game really does a good job in almost every aspect. The music, narration, progression, and every fits and works very well together. Don't forget that even the price for this game is very reasonable.

I'd recommend this game to anybody. I mean, for a game this cheap and this good, why not get it?

Basic Information
Title: One Finger Death Punch
Developer: Silver Dollar Games
Publisher: Silver Dollar Games
Genre: Fighting

General Impression
One Finger Death Punch is a beat ’em up type of game that provides some degree of novelty to this genre, even if the graphics themselves seem rather simplistic. The 2-button control scheme based solely on the mouse, may seem boring at first but if you focus on the on-screen action you will not be displeased. I found this title to be just the perfect test of my reaction time and general reflexes. You have plenty of stage diversity and the stick figures you are fighting, have a large enough arsenal to prevent the combat from becoming stale. It really is a game with few flaws, but if I were to choose one, that would be the pricing which might be a bit too high if you’re not picking this game up from a bundle or on Steam Sale. But if you do buy during a special offer, you’re not gonna regret at any point. And I do hope that it may receive trading cards eventually. Until then, you can still brag with the surprisingly large achievement showcase it possesses.

Strong Points
+ Fun gameplay mechanics.
+ Steam Achievements.

Weak Points
- Slightly overpriced.
- No Steam Trading Cards.

Rating 7/10

Deceptively simple to learn, but relatively hard to master, One Finger Death Punch will test the quickness of your reflexes, and the sturdiness of your 2 chosen buttons.

Okay, I'll just play a couple levels to kill some time then...

2 hours later...

One... more... level!

I picked this up during summer sale and after playing it for a while I wouldn't even regret it if I had to pay the full price. It's somewhat addictive for me like Tetris was years ago.

It's rather uninteresting if you just spam your way through the levels. But if you are the type of player who wants every star, medal, badge or whatever there is you can sink a tremendous amount of time into this game. Don't get fooled by the plain looks. Getting everything on perfect platinum can be extremely challenging.

You use one finger to click, but there are left and right click which is two, but then hold the mouse counting five fingers. Must even the game title be so sensationalized?

The answer is yes because this is actually quite a sensational game. You kung fu your way through a stream of hangmans clicking with one finger and as a result you feel really bad ♥♥♥. For there are things you do with one entire hand and all you feel afterward is bad; and lonely.

But I couldn't finish the game. Reason being I stopped midway and then it was too hard to beat the latter stages when your skills wore off. Who knew clicking is a perishable skill. And so that's how things stand currently unfinished. Not that I'm so eager to beat it and take a screenshot of the "Fanx for playing" ending pic...

That is the agenda for the next game clicker of this clicking game. Well, I must tell you, my friends, you who have waited faithfully for the punchline of this review, that having consulted colleagues and in view of the circumstances in mouse clicking, I have concluded that person cannot be me.

And so here is one finger, pointed at you, not the longest one, to buy this game, and give it a try. It is a recommendation.
