Update Released - Go Faster Stripes

July 13th, 2014

Hi everybody!

Thanks to everyone that's bought FIST OF AWESOME so far! You're all wonderful, lovely people.

I've pushed a new update which increases the minimum speed of Tim by 12(ish)%. This is in response to feedback that he feels a bit slow when starting out so you can get into the action all the faster! It also fixes a small text bug in one of the later levels.

In the next fortnight or so, thanks to some lovely community members, I'll be pushing out a version with full Russian translation. If it gets received well I'll release more language updates over the following weeks and months.

Lots of love,

Nicoll x

Bare Bears, man. Those tassels. 10/10


Fist of Awesome is a fun game but got kinda boring fast for me. It just didn't have much going for it besides the punching bears bit. The game isn't that long, a single playthrough can be done in one sitting. This isn't surprising as the game was originally a mobile (and Ouya) game. It's a very simplified version of a game like Streets of Rage with regenerating health and no pick-up items. You level up as you play and unlock stat points to powerup your Health, Power, Speed and Special. The Arena mode looks to be a survival mode where you get to play as any character in the game that you've faced off against and other special characters. It doesn't add much enjoyment to the game sadly. Overall the game is horribly repetitive and offers little to no "replayability."

You also fight velociraptors and deer alongside bears. I like the final choice, didn't see it coming.

I'd recommend this game as a casual beat-em-up to play when you want a quick game. Although at full price it's not worth it really, but if you can get it at a discount it's a decent buy.

For the regular price of $7.99 or even the current sale price of $6.79 it isn't that good of a deal.
You can find the game cheaper on mobile platforms: $3.99 on iTunes and the Play Store and $1.99 on the android Amazon Store

If you like humorous one-liners and zingers, this game is for you. Otherwise, it's mostly just punching an onslaught of bears. You must defeat all the bears to free humanity from an alternate timeline where the wrold has been taken over...by bears. Give it a try; you may find it addictive...I found it a tad repetitive.

Not sure how many hours of game time this game will offer, but after a bit of play time, it certainly does not disappoint.(However, after 30 minutes of play time, I have completed half of the levels seen in the trailer)

I expected a simple beat-em-up and got a complex and intricate fighting system, fine-tuned by years of balance testing and realistic movement mechanics exhibited by bears. Is that bear really in the game, or real life? What is the exact scenario that would happen if I was to fight a bear under incredibly realistic circumstances? Fist of Awesome has answered, and this is the best bear fighting simulator I have seen all year.

And the story is incredibly deep, too. Never have I ever cried, or been so touched by the Tim Burr's struggle for humanity, and the fights he faces with his own demons, with whom he must also fight alongside. The supporting characters play an astounding plot-central role that no other written genius could ever deliver, on paper, movie, or game. This game leaves me with a deep connection to the characters and has inspired me to help deliver humanity from this terrible fate. Truly amazing.

TLDR
If you want a good laugh, buy the game.

First of all the game is just really fun. Its a old school side scrolling beat'em up with really funny humor and excellent gameplay. Use an xBox controller and just have hours of fun. There is an rpg mechanic of leveling up and the upgrades do carry over to the Arenas. Speaking of which you can take a break from the story and fight in the arenas using a whole slew of different characters each with their own special abilities. The AI is pretty good and will provide some challenge. The graphics are pixelated to give it that retro feel. The developer is extremely active and is quick to address any issues or simply to listen to suggestions. I definitely recommend this title.
