About This Game

Sport and RPG elements have been combined with traditional fighting game mechanics for the first time, to offer unrivaled realism and challengingly brutal gameplay. Train until you sweat blood to increase skills such as endurance, speed, leg and arm strength. When you think your ready, take part in underground street fights for cold, hard cash. Strive to earn the right to call yourself…the most powerful Capoeira fighter in the World! Martial Arts: Capoeira, is based on Capoeira, a Brazilian martial arts. Capoeira is a Brazilian fight-dance, game, and martial art created by enslaved Africans during the 16th Century. Participants form a roda (circle) and take turns playing instruments, singing, and sparring in pairs in the centre of Martial Arts: Capoeira. The game is marked by fluid acrobatic play, feints, subterfuge, and extensive use of groundwork, as well as sweeps, kicks, and headbutts. Technique and strategy are the key elements to playing a good game. Martial Arts: Capoeira is at his base a classical beat’em up, but with a strong influence from RPG games where you can enhance and personalize the fighters. You will always face new challenges and new experience, as every time you create a new Career mode session, you have the opportunity to chose different approach and strategies, spreading skill points differently and challenging tournaments in different ways.

12 fighters with their own characteristics
13 real world locations
Exciting career mode
Customizable character development
Thrilling local multiplayer mode

I'm shocked. I thought this game was going to be crappy shovelware, but it's actually pretty good. It's accurate to the practice of capoiera, the controls are fairly responsive (They're a little stiff, but I think they were trying to simulate the rhythm of the berimbau, meaning you can't just hammer away at buttons.)


The only thing that's really goofy is the cast of characters: I mean seriously, you have a Jamaican character nicknamed AMAZON and some John Cena looking ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Only one Brazilian dude's even in this game

So broken that I can't even play it. Won't let me select game modes in the menus, regardless of mouse/keyboard/controller. The one time I did manage to actually start a match the game was so terrible that we simply closed out right away. Avoid at all costs.

This game sucks but I enjoyed it. Heads up there is no controler support and the key bindings r "W A S D" to move and the action buttons r "H J B N and SPACE" It takes a little getting used to. I would only recommend getting this game when it's on sale and if u like martial arts or capoeira cause the reality is there isn't much appeal to the game.

The game itself is not bad. But there's no options for controls or graphics whatsoever.

The game is somewhat good but it is not worth your money.

First of all the resolution is low and there are some glitches in the game.
If you get tired in a match sometimes you are unable to move and are unable to take damage for some reason.

Technically, the game looks like a PS2 game, with a 4:3 aspect ratio and no options whatsoever.

Maybe the intention is good but... no. The game is not fun. People don't play a game which isn't fun.

I cannot reccomend this game. The controls are shoddy, the fights are short and pointless and I find the entire game to be an insult to Capoeira. I would understand if the game was in PreAlpha, but it has been around for about 2 years before coming to Steam so the windo for improving it has been open for a long time. The only reason I can see for this pile of rubbish being released is to coincide with the world cup being held in Brazil. double thumbs down from a very disappointed fan of Capoeira

First off I actually like the game and enjoy playing, the fighting itself is a bit different from most games like this as in it is more strategy than button mashing. You have no health rather it is it like a tug o' war and you need to balance not getting tired.

The reason for the the thumbs down is the lack of any graphic options even basic resolution. There is also no key remapping or controller support.

Waste of 10 Euro's I had. The game lags, there are already zero to no options, and then the music options reverse now and then, blowing my ears out.
Next to that, I was doing career and boom, after three matches my character just stood there.... doing nothing, while the other person was trying to hit me... which did not happen. After a few minutes I quit playing story mode, and then I noticed that when I do the tutorial, you learn instead of 5 techniques, 3 techniques at the basic technique tutorial... and then it suddenly stops and I get back in the main menu with the settings again on full, once again blowing my ears out. Just... bad for my 10 euro's.
