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.

Very engaging and incredibly satisfactory. It's probably the best example of simple concept that turned out into such a great masterpiece. I've put 22 hours into it and for such a cheap game it really is a great value.

The hardest difficulty (grandmaster I think it is called) is a bit crazy though and I agree with people who are making negative comments about it. For such a tight and hardcore mode - there is too much randomness which makes it downright impossible to play on that difficulty.

That's just a minor gripe though and before getting to the highest difficulty there is a lot of fun and enjoying gameplay waiting for you.

Really good mechanics, amazing action. But a lot of the bomb levels feel untested and not balanced at all.

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 f**king now.

Seems way too simple at first, but don't let this little gem pass you by.

It's highly engaging and addictive. Like poker, a minute to learn a lifetime to master. Easy to jump in and out for those with little time to spend.

My only request would be more replay buttons accessible. For example, on the round win screen, round fail screen, etc. We all know we're going for perfection here. Why delay it by going back to the main screen and having to confirm your replay TWICE to replay a level. In a game where EVERY click matters, it seems like two too many.

It was fun and it can challenge you. If you really want to kill some time, enjoy tempo games and enjoy stickman violence this is for you. If not, then look elsewhere for your entertainment.

This game is simplistic, yet amazing. The soundtrack is fantastic and although in reality you are pressing two buttons it manages to make you feel like an utter badass! I got this game on sale but I would be happy to pay the retail price twice over. 10/10 would finger your death punch again!

Literally one the most satisfying and gratifying games I have ever played.

Just look at the reviews " Overwhelmingly Positive ". They can all bare witness to the greatness of the game. For the price I say it is completely worth it.

It's one of those games in which you feel the sense of euphoria with every hit you deliever.

To the developer : This game has truly a lot of potential, I could say that it is perfect but yet it can be so much improved in terms of its presentation, artwork and gameplay. I also have the game on Android and it's a blast. Let the gameplay on both platforms be completely correlative.

There are litterally only two inputs in this game: left mouse button and right mouse button. And yet it is one pulse pounding action games I have ever played. The gameplay is fluid and fast paced and really makes you feel like a martial arts god. Yet the difficulty curve is well balanced to let you get up to speed in the early game yet still present a challenge in the later game. And there are enough different game modes within the main game alone that you won't get bored soon.

Love it. Great stress buster. Love the overly exaggerated accents. It's basically a more fun version of block-drop. 8/10

Usually when someone says "You can play this game with one hand, and there's lots of beating involved", it implies something completely different.
