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.

I actually enjoyed this game immensely. I described it to friends as a "coffebreak game" when one of these said friends complained that he didn't "have time for any more games".

It's a test of endurance between two fingers (Or one if you are ballsy) and mashing does not work, especially if you want to get the achievements. There is timing, quickness, decision making, and attention that you need to win the rounds that get exponentially faster through the game.

Don't let the simple graphics fool you, the soundtrack and sfx are top notch and it only makes me hope for a sequel!

Do the devs a favor and nab this game so we can get that sequel with multiplayer (competitive mode anyone?)

  • The game is nice, the animations are good but there's just too much going on in the backgroud. I prefer a minimalistic background to complement the characters on the screen.
  • The audio is decent, no 3D positional audio or anything.
  • Effects for combos, special moves etc. are underwhelming.
  • Wold map control should have arrow buttons support.
  • Wold map art design is like a childs art project.

    Overall, I love the game. I can play it while having a coffee, or talking on Skype.
    I also recommend it for mechanical keyboard lovers. Use your KBs not the mouse on game of course.

It's surprising how from a very simple mechanics (left and right mouse buttons) and presentation (stick figures) derives so much joy and entertaiment.
Also you can rip hearts out of ribcages.

If you like simplistic games that are just 2 keys, this is the game for you.
All this game requires from you, is timing and quick reflexes.

A simple but highly addictive stick-man fighting game that is just awesome to play!
The games controls are as easy as a press of two buttons. Be carful though, if you just randomly start clicking away thinking you are going to fly through the game you are wrong. The games design is pretty solid and button mashing will defiantly kill you in just a few hits.

The objective is to take out enemies as they enter your clickable space (Zone), while trying not to miss your incoming opponents. Using weapons that enemies drop, unlockable skills, and a little eye coordination you'll be sure to declare victory.

One of the best games I've ever played.
You have to time every single one of your actions, and have supersonic reflexes, and it feels great.
The visual is so good, I had the feeling of playing a Hyun's Dojo video.
Best stickman fighting game IMO

After playing this game, I came to something of a realization about it. Despite the visuals of being one of those old school newgrounds flash animations with the stick figures in the epic fight scenes?

Its a rhythm game.

Yet it is -so much more satisfying- because of the insane visuals and epic violence you're inflicted on successes. Even basic gameplay makes you feel godlike, and perfection even moreso.
