Probably few people have heard about Nidhogg. At first glance it's a simple 2D fighting with 8-bit graphics. But is it really?
I CHALLENGE YOU TO A PIXEL DUEL
There is no plot in Nidhogg. Instead, only fights with a computer opponent or with other people in online. The meaning of each battle is not killing the enemy, but in achieving the opposite end of the map. Four keys for movement, one key for punch and one key for jump. Sounds easier than it actually is. In fact, fightings are very funny and full of madness, but not without subtleties of the combat system. I advise you to play only in the company of friends. Singleplayer and online battles with strangers doesn't bring much fun.
NOT ENOUGH PIXELS
Nidhogg has enough of advantages to buy it. But there are some unpleasant drawbacks. Too few maps, quickly bored gameplay, inconvenient system for playing online with friends (A friend is not always able to connect to your game). These shortcomings, in fact, are not much spoiling the gaming experience. If it were not for one thing. Too high price. Seriously. It should cost twice less, judging on how many content in it.

Complexity of the achievements: Some achievements will make you play this game for a long time. And not all of them can be easily performed. Nidhogg is a game with a so much
fun and madness, but with so few
levels and other content. If you're don't
mind to spending so much money on it,
then you'll are sure to spend a few fun
To buy or not to buy, that is the question [6.5/10].
