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.

The best cure for a bad mood. Simply a great game with an incredibly low price.

This is not the sort of game i usually enjoy, but I enjoyed this game immensly. It is responsive, fast, easy to pick up and yet challenging enough to require some focus. It has enough variety to keep things interesting, unlockable skills to keep you wanting more, and enough combat to satisfy the most brutal of appetites.

One Finger Death Punch is a 2D combat, brawler game which has you use kung-fu to kick some butt! With a variety of game modes, a vast array of missions and a collection of skills to unlock this game provides almost endless replayability.

+Nice Xiao Xiao style
+Intense and fast paced combat even when playing on the slowest game speed
+A huge number of stages (250 to be precise)
+Three difficulty levels, each unlocked by completing the previous difficulty (apart from the first one of course)
+Simple controls, you only use the left and right mouse button
+Incredibly addictive
+21 skills to unlock through completing certain stages
+A variety of weapons which can be picked up and used against your enemies
+A number of different enemy variations each requiring a certain combination of attacks
+Quite a few different stage types, such as mob rounds, light sword rounds and boss fights
+Game speed is adjusted automatically depending on your performance in the stages, doing well will increase the game speed while doing badly will decrease it
+Five different fighting styles which are interchanged throughout the different stages
+You are punished for button mashing
+When you pause and un-pause it goes at a very slow speed for a few seconds so you don't die instantly
+Brutal slow motion scenes where you do things like take your enemy's eye out with a punch
+Extremely good value for money

-The narrator is pretty bad/cheesy
-Weapons don't last very long
-Occasionally the game jerked a bit which stopped me from attacking and I therefore got hit by enemies
-The different stage types are not used enough, too many mob rounds
-When the game zooms in during slow motion scenes the graphics look awful
-Doesn't have resolution options so it looks stretched on a 1920x1080 monitor

Verdict:
9

An incredibly fun combat brawler game that's especially good if you like Xiao Xiao games or 2D combat games in general.

One of the highest rated games on Steam is a brilliant 2D kung fu beat'em up game. This game is made by Silver dollar games, a studio that honestly haven't made any good games in the past. This game catched me and many others by surprise.

The gameplay is simple, yet very difficult as you go forward. You play with your 2 mouse buttons, thats it. Attack right and left, in the right pace. The game has a very nice rhythm, put together with great soundtrack. Every punch and kick feels so good, thanks to very responsive controls.

The only downside to this otherwise great game is the graphics. Textures on the map looks bad. When you play it doesn't really matter though, only when you scroll through the levels. The figher you play as looks like a stickman, meaning the graphics is very simple, but does the job alright.

There's a lot of levels to play through, and 3 difficulty stages. When you're done with that there is also endless survival, highscores to beat (both your own and your friends) and other gamemodes available. A fun narrator will guide you forward as you learn new abilities. You can mix and match them as you like, and try different things out every run.


I'm proud to say that this is one of my favorite games of 2014, and I think everyone should give it a try.
