Nidhogg is the epic award-winning fencing tug-of-war, full of graceful acrobatics and clumsy stabs. IRL yelling and excitement may occur, in this ultimate two-player showdown of fast-paced fencing and melee attacks. Beware, advantages in Nidhogg are often fleeting, as new opponents continually spawn in your way.

Recensies

“A brilliant marriage of mechanics, level design and music that will be played and talked about for years to come.”
93/100 – PC Gamer

“It’s the most exhilarating competitive game I’ve played in years.”
9/10 – IGN

“Nidhogg is about the purity of two friends on a couch duking it out as Daedelus’s moody dynamic electronica frames acrobatic displays of wits and reflexes. In that sense, it has no equal.”
9/10 – Edge

Over dit spel

Nidhogg is the epic award-winning fencing tug-of-war, full of graceful acrobatics and clumsy stabs. IRL yelling and excitement may occur, in this ultimate two-player showdown of fast-paced fencing and melee attacks.

Beware, advantages in Nidhogg are often fleeting, as new opponents continually spawn in your way. Use a variety of fencing maneuvers while armed -- lunges, parries, and even dirty tricks like throwing your sword. If swordless, press forward with punches, sweep kicks, dive kicks, rolls, and wall jumps.

The combat arena stretches in both directions, although besting an opponent only gains you ground. Matches aren’t won or lost with a single kill, but with a series of kills granting you right-of-way to run/fight/flee to your own goal-zone.

Each arena holds different strategic formations and chokepoints to use to your advantage. Until you reach your goal-zone, anything is possible. Only one thing is certain in Nidhogg… the only way to win is to outwit your opponent. En Garde!

This game is fun. I would reccomend it. The networking is not that great, but the game makes up for it. When playing singleplayer it starts off easy, but soo escalates to the point you want to smash your keyboard. 10/10 would play it again.

DON'T READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DON'T STOP. THIS IS SO FREAKY.
1)Say your name 10 times
2)Say your mom's name 5 times
3)Say your crush's name 3 times
4)Paste this onto 4 other games
If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you don't paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO freaky. other wise great grahics

A typical game of Nidhogg:

Walk up to your opponent
Tap their sword as you each edge back and forth looking for an opening
Raise and lower your sword to try and catch them out
Run into their sword by mistake
Lose two screens
The enemy falls in a hole
Retake 3 screens
Have an epic duel
Only just win
Get killed due to your oponent spawning right at the edge of the screen as you were running there
Repeat 20 times or more
Get eaten by a giant worm
???
Profit?

OH BOY, THIS IS TRULY A PERFECT GAME!! Truly a well balanced 1v1 game where controlling he neutral is the key. Learning how to take that lead and keep it requires you to have quick thinking and learn how to take pace. Honest score of 10/10, as long you have a pal to play with.

One of the best competitive local multiplayer games on Steam. Its simplicity in inputs means that combat is pure footsies and mind games so even my friends and family who are terrible at fighting games can play it and have fun. The online is fun but unfortunately the netcode is pretty terrible.

As crazy as it sounds as a person that has actually done fencing (grade 3 foil) this is the most realistic and fun rendition of fencing in a video game.

(no joke most games that have fencing don't do it well e.g mario and sonic at the olympic game franchise)

Fast paced 1v1 fencing has never been more exciting than what Nidhogg has to offer. Deceptively simple two button controls hide very complex interactions. That said the real trick to Nidhogg is learning your opponent and countering their plans more than their actions.

Nidhogg is a simplistic fencing game, the winner being the one who comes out on top in a contest of deadly tug-of-war, with a welcoming art style, dynamic soundtrack, a polite attention to detail and incredibly pleasing vistas, this game warms you inside, as you physically and mentally try to out-do your opponent and advance screens. The price isn't totally agreeable, £10.99 ($15) is a tad steep in my opinion as there isn't too much to do alone. However, this game shines in its co-op fun factor. Attemping to line up your friend(s) on your sword like a pixelated shish kebab is very amusing and you'll find yourselves having a blast whenever you're together and Nidhogg's involved. If you've got a buddy to have a 'stab' at this game with then do. Other than that, it's most probably worth getting for yourself in a sale, and only in a sale.

I.... personally don't think this game is worth the full price. If you can find it cheaper, like less than $5, then it is totally worth it! You may get a good couple hours out of it. This game is definitely fun with others and I got plenty of laughs out of it with friends. There just isn't a whole lot to it. There are 4 maps and only one really good game mode. Still I would reccommend it!

Pretty great game if you have someone to play with, leaves a little to be desired in single player.

Needs a few more levels, especially with the cloud level being very hard on the eyes.

Though as a multiplayer it's super fun, simple to learn the controls without having to bother with advanced mechanics and quite intense, i'd give it a go if you need a quick pick up and play party game, beats the ♥♥♥♥ outta Mario Party or something.
